By Du Hua on ParisTech Review

La décision de la Chine, prise en 2010, de limiter la production et l'exportation de ses terres rares représente pour certains industriels un risque de production majeur. C'est tout particulièrement vrai pour les chimistes. Le responsable du département terres rares pour le groupe Rhodia s'est entretenu au printemps 2011 avec ParisTech Review.
China's decision in 2010 to limit production and exportation of the rare earth metals on which a number of industries rely set off alarm bells among the country's trading partners. This was particularly true for the chemicals industry. The President of Rhodia Group's Rare Earth Systems took time to comment on the current situation with ParisTech Review in Spring 2011.
