Facts about Silver
Did you know 60% of silver is used for important industrial applications?
Important electronic equipment, critical medical supplies and treatments, and green energy components such as batteries and solar panels all require silver.
Did you know silver is critical for global efforts to transition to renewable green energy and away from carbon producing fossil fuels?
Silver has the highest electrical and thermal conductivity, giving it a central role in the world’s transition to renewable energy and less reliance on fossil fuels.
Did you know silver is an essential element needed to create solar panels?
In order for solar panels to covert sunlight to electricity, silver is used to provide conduction of the energy from silicon photocells to be used immediately or stored in batteries.
Did you know silver is used in life-saving medical products?
Silver is a critical component of multiple important lifesaving medications and medical equipment including anti-microbial medications, burn bandages, MRI machines, surgical tools, needles, and even catheters.
Did you know silver is used to create electric vehicles?
Battery-driven electric vehicles contain up to twice as much silver as carbon burning vehicles. It has been estimated that by 2040, electric vehicle manufacturing will use approximately 50% of annual global silver supply.
Did you know silver is used in water-purification systems?
Silver is an important component of water purification systems, especially in developing areas. Silver prevents bacteria and algae growth, and assists in removal of chlorine, lead, particulate, and odors.
Did you know 5G technology requires silver for multiple components?
Silver is required for semiconductor chips, cabling, microelectromechanical systems, and internet enabled devices – all critical components of 5G networks.
