Tungsten Industry - Conflict Minerals Council (TI-CMC) board meeting in Towanda

This week GTP hosted the annual TI-CMC board meeting in Towanda. Board members from 4 smelters and representatives from the Refractory Metals Association (RMA) attended the Board meeting. The work of the TI-CMC is becoming increasingly important for our industry for insuring conflict-free supply.

In addition to the board meeting the group also met with the Conflict Free Smelter Initiative (CFSI) to discuss revisions to the Conflict Free Smelter Program (CFSP) which is being aligned to also satisfy the upcoming EU regulations as well as further demands from the downstream industry. Snow covered GTP offered a challenging but interesting setting for the participants.
