ICMM Blockchain for Traceability in Minerals and Metal Supply Chains
Downstream manufacturing companies such as electronics and automotive companies are increasingly demanding the following information from upstream producers with regards to the metals and mineral in their end products:
- Provenance: From which mines/miners are the minerals and metals that are contained in their end
- Production methods: Under which methods are they produced? Are they produced responsibly?
The ICMM has commissioned the following report to understand how blockchain technology could potentially provide the above-mentioned claims as part of robust Chain of Custody (CoC) systems.
