promoting the sustainable and responsible production and use of cobalt in all forms

Phones and electronics

We are all increasingly reliant on technology. Whether smart speakers, phones, smart TVs, cars, or vacuum cleaners, you will find integrated circuits working in the background everywhere – just hidden from sight.

Did you know it is likely these also contain cobalt? Cobalt is ideal for these, given its wear resistance and electrical resistivity.

Cobalt is also used in semi-conductors, which are at the heart of the chips that make modern electronics work.

So as we move towards greater digitalisation – from transport, to smart homes to smart cities – we are going to need cobalt to enable it.
