The objective of this project on The Use and Displacement of Platinum Group Metals is to interrogate the use of Platinum Group Metals (PGM), as well as other metals, in the development of downstream industries to service the global putative hydrogen economy. The research also investigates the geo-political implications of South Africa’s PGM endowment for the region and how South Africa could be positioned in the development of the hydrogen economy. 


The research project on The Use and Displacement of Platinum Group Metals was finalised July 2013 and the findings were published in a research report entitled South Africa and the Global Hydrogen Economy: The Strategic Role of Platinum Group Metals
