Complete Project List

Researchers at the Critical Materials Institute work to find ways to diversify supplies of critical materials, develop substitutes, improve reuse and recycling, enable research, sustain the environment, study the supply chain and analyze economics. The institute started with more than 30 projects. Over time, some have merged or ended and others have been added. This page provides a list of the current CMI projects, which can be sorted by clicking on a column header.
