The Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy has just published its thematic section on “Green Rare Earth Elements—Innovations in Ore Processing, Hydrometallurgy, and Electrolysis” (Volume 3, Number 1). The thematic section, which was assembled by Prof. Bernd Friedrich (RWTH Aachen) features a number of innovations with respect to REE production and recycling, as well key review papers.
SIM² KU Leuven contributed to this issue through two papers.
- Separation of Rare Earths by Solvent Extraction with an Undiluted Nitrate Ionic Liquid (Kristian Larsson, Koen Binnemans)
- REE Recovery from End-of-Life NdFeB Permanent Magnet Scrap: A Critical Review (Yongxiang Yang, Allan Walton, Richard Sheridan…, Tom Van Gerven, Peter Tom Jones, Koen Binnemans)
