    The Strategic Role of Platinum Group Metals in a Hydrogen Economy

    MISTRA launched its research report: South Africa and the Global Hydrogen Economy - The Strategic Role of Platinum Group Metals on 30th August 2013 at the Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand.
    South Africa has 85% of the world’s platinum group metal resources. The country’s endowment is valued at some US$2.5 trillion (about R250 trillion). These reserves constitute a national asset from which the nation can collectively draw immeasurable benefit.
    MISTRA’s 18-month research project on PGM’s interrogated the significance of the estimated 85% of the world’s platinum group metals (PGM) reserves, for South Africa and southern Africa. A fundamental question that was probed is how the use of these mineral endowments can position South Africa and the region to establish a significant downstream PGM-based industrial sector.
    The launch conference shared the findings of the MISTRA research, which the institute believes will contribute to understanding how best the country can manage its mineral resources within the context of a knowledge-based economy.
