for the Future

Presentation on the future of tin given by Dr Jeremy Pearce at the London Tin Seminar 2020.

The imminent 4th Industrial Revolution and the Green Industrial Revolution should both benefit tin over the next decade. Tin as solder will glue together all of the electronic and electrical equipment required for a -supported smart communications future. At the same time the fascinating technical properties of tin are already delivering a wide and growing range of R&D projects across green energy technologies as well as new electronic materials. Tin-copper products should also benefit from development of and energy infrastructures.      

Tin in Green Technologies

Dr Jeremy Pearce presents a review of tin green technology R&D at December 2020.

Tin has a wide range of fascinating technical properties and this enables it to compete across the board in the Green Industrial Revolution. A portfolio of case studies is presented, based on ITA’s curation of around 5,000 scientific abstracts on tin R&D each year. Latest results are highlighted, including technologies for tin usage in energy storage, energy generation and a greener planet.

Delivering the Future of Tin

The International Tin Association (formerly Ltd) is the only organisation dedicated to supporting the tin industry and expanding tin use. A primary goal is to ensure an innovative, competitive, and sustainable supply chain and market for tin.

We are a focal point for discussion and action on important regional and issues affecting the tin industry, promoting the industry worldwide, providing authority, leadership and voice.
