Abstract : The United States is highly vulnerable to problems in supply of critical and strategic materials and it is recognized that there is a whole spectrum of options for responding to such crises. While a number of supply oriented options are under study by various groups, the focus of this Workshop was on the technical options. The Workshop was held principally to develop information for the report required by the Department of Commerce, but should also be useful to the other agencies in their responsibilities. The DoC report is supposed to identify a materials needs case related to national security, economic well-being, and industrial productivity, to assess critical materials needs, and to recommend programs to meet these needs. jg p.583
