English term or phrase: criticality
Supply of critical metals requires a baseline technology infrastructure that can recover metals from complex mixtures, thus extending the concept of criticality from that of the individual elements to the infrastructure necessary for their cyclical use.

What does this sentence mean?
Looks like I understand every single word separately, but I don't have a clue what he's talking about.

Thanks for your help

Explanation:
關鍵金屬的供應需要一個基準線技術基礎架構,以從複雜的混合物中回收金屬,從而將個別元素的關鍵性概念延伸至其循環使用所需的基礎設施身上。

關鍵性金屬的供應是需要有技術設施作為基礎的, 從複雜的混合物中回收金屬,作循環使用,要是擴展這關鍵概念,必須從個別的元素聯繫到基礎設施上。
