MPT will join The Solutions for Hope Project. This project is the first in any industry to validate a closed tantalum pipe process, assuring all products contain only conflict-free tantalum in accordance with the principles of the US.
Government’s Dodd-Frank “Conflict Mineral” legislation and current Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) guidance for “Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.”
All our sites uses the ITRI Tin Supply Chain Initiative’s (iTSCi) “bag and tag” scheme which subjects all tantalum ore set for import to our Smelter.
Our staff is always present at mining sites to confirm quality, specs and production as well as workers conditions.
The Solutions for Hope Project remains the only project to exclusively use EICC/GeSI validated Conflict Free Smelters for processing tantalum ore into capacitor-grade materials.
