"Over the past two years, KEMET has expended a significant amount of time and effort developing a sustainable sourcing model based on conflict-free tantalum from the Democratic Republic of Congo, culminating in the industry's only closed pipe vertically integrated conflict-free tantalum supply chain," said Per Loof, KEMET's Chief Executive Officer.

The result is the delivery of guaranteed 100% conflict-free capacitors to customers.
