„Emerging and advanced technologies will define the 21st Century, and will shape the geopolitics and geostrategic relationships of the era. Virtually all of these technologies will require increasing quantities of strategic and precious metals. The Draslovka's GlyLeach technology empowers the U.S. and other Western countries to establish robust and self-sufficient local supply chains for strategic and precious metal extraction, thus reducing reliance on authoritarian regimes, which currently dominate the supplies of many of these resources, creating real vulnerabilities in the global market. It truly can be a paradigm shift towards greater independence and resilience in the pursuit of the vital strategic and precious metals we need for the safeguarding of our and other democracies and the transition of our economies into the high-tech environment of the 21st Century. “
