In the race for leadership in hydrogen technology, Europe is right at the top, because most of the projects are taking place in Europe. In order to meet the climate targets, set for 2050, the European Union has declared hydrogen to be a key element. Electrolysers of 40 gigawatts are to be installed in the current decade.

Platinum catalysts for the conversion of hydrogen and for fuel cells should increase in demand, and with them the demand for platinum. The Hydrogen Council plays an important role in this, with members including BMW, Sinopec and Royal Dutch Shell. Hydrogen technology is an important part of zero-emission technologies. If the development really picks up speed, companies with platinum in their projects should be pleased.

These include, for example, Sibanye-Stillwater - - ( In the U.S. and South Africa, the company owns a large portfolio of platinum and palladium projects, including the former Lonmin platinum assets. In addition, Sibanye-Stillwater produces gold and has recently bought into a lithium project in Finland, i.e. in the battery metals sector.

New models also ensure faster charging times and greater convenience, such as sufficient space in the trunk. Battery metals are therefore in demand, including cobalt. Cobalt, which is in demand, as well as nickel, are part of the projects of the Canada Nickel Company
 - This will supply both the market for electric car manufacturers and the steel industry. The Crawford nickel-cobalt sulfide project in Ontario possesses these raw materials.
