Their wide-ranging discussion traces Samantha’s journey in the industry of deep sea polymetallic nodule extraction. They speak about the need to develop new supply streams for minerals to meet the demands of global energy decarbonisation, how polymetallic nodules can play a key role in meeting that demand, and the ways in which deep sea extraction can be untaken responsibly while minimising environmental impact.
