The daily challenge for natural resources industries is to efficiently extract the earth’s precious resources (gold, copper, platinum, oil & gas, coal and others) while meeting ever-increasing global demand. And as demand grows due to population and economic drivers, remaining resources are increasingly challenging to extract and refine. Industries and individual companies need to continuously improve in order to meet the demand while remaining environmentally responsible and economically stable.
Technology is key to meeting these challenges. Electron microscopy has become an indispensable solution for natural resource companies to analyze, measure, and quantify commercially relevant features in rocks, minerals and man-made materials. FEI, a world leader in electron microscopy, is at the forefront with dedicated solutions for the natural resources industries.
