Motorola Solutions has launched the Solutions for Hope Project, a pilot initiative to source conflict-free tantalum from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to be used in Motorola Solutions products. With the Solutions for Hope Project, Motorola Solutions and a tantalum capacitor supplier have worked with a defined set of suppliers to create a closed-pipe supply line, with all suppliers, including mine, exporter, processor, component manufacturer and end user, identified in advance. Tantalum will begin flowing though the system created by the Solutions for Hope Project by the end of July.
