ETN DEMETER CONCLUDING SYMPOSIUM

Rare-earth permanent magnet motors and the e-mobility revolution

5-7 February 2019 – LEUVEN, Belgium

The DEMETER Symposium will deliver a high-quality, interesting and wide-ranging programme on rare-earth permanent-magnet motors and the e-mobility revolution. Over three days the Symposium will cover advances in materials, applications and emerging technologies in the field. The Symposium is based around keynote lectures by international experts, as well as oral presentations by the early-stage researchers from the DEMETER project. Moreover, other participants will have the opportunity to present their own work during an Intensified Poster Presentation session. Discussions, conclusions and ideas to take home will be generated by the two panel discussions.

 

The topics of the symposium focus on the recovery and reuse of large rare-earth permanent magnets from drive motors, power-steering motors, stop-start motors, and regenerative braking and range-extender generators in hybrid and full-electric vehicles using innovative, eco-efficient direct and indirect recycling routes. In addition, they involve innovative processing techniques for the production of high-performance Nd-Fe-B and Sm-Co magnets, and the design of electric motors and generators for the next generation of electric vehicles to enable the easy future reuse of Nd-Fe-B and Sm-Co magnets. Keynote speakers and international experts will provide insights into the road that takes us from the urban-mine to machines, lifecycle assessments and lifecycle-costing methodologies for rare-earth permanent magnets to ensure the most environmentally friendly and economic routes to be applied for recycling.

 

TOPICS:

  • Are REEs still critical?
  • The future of REE permanent magnets
  • Recycling of REE permanent magnets
  • REE permanent magnet motors for (H)EVs
TWO PANEL DISCUSSION SESSIONS:

1. How does Europe secure its technology future without its own REE resources?
2. How can we better develop magnets and magnet systems to improve recyclability?
