Critical raw materials are a group of future minerals that can be used for technological innovations based on clean and renewable energy. This mineral is said to be critical because its availability is increasingly limited. There are other factors such as high demand, geopolitical competition, trade policy issues, and the function of critical minerals that cannot be replaced by other minerals.

Some countries such as the US, Japan, South Korea, and the European Union classify
critical minerals as follows: rare earth elements (REE), gallium (Ga), indium (In), tungsten (W), platinum (Pt), palladium (Pd), cobalt (Co), niobium (Nb), magnesium (Mg), molybdenum (Mo), antimony (Sb), lithium (Li), vanadium (V), nickel (Ni), tantalum (Ta), tellurium (Te), chromium (Cr) and manganese (Mn).

Currently, Indonesia has proven ore reserves of various mining commodities, such as nickel as much as 1.499 billion tons, copper 639.206 million tons, bauxite 927.781 million tons, tin 1.253 billion tons. Reserves of commodities are Indonesia’s strength and focus in downstreaming in managing natural resources, especially with technological advances that have developed. The Directorate General of Mineral and Coal stated that the minerals that we have and can be used for the needs of national strategic industries and for Indonesia have the potential to control world supply.

The role of critical minerals is very important for the manufacture of information technology, the need for electric vehicles, for the needs of health technology, clean and renewable energy such as wind turbines and solar panels, and the defense industry.
