REE-containing Industrial Waste Residues Evaluation

28 February, 2017

REE-containing Industrial Waste Residues Evaluation

  An evaluation of the main REE-containing industrial waste residues was performed as a first activity in WP1 in order to identify the most promising waste streams for further study in the REMAGHIC project. Two were the tools used for that purpose: (1) characterization of the waste materials by analyzing the main chemical composition, with focus on the REE, and (2) a decision-weighted Matrix for the final selection. The outcome was a waste classification according to the concentration of the most interesting REE for the project (Y, Ce, La), taking into account the information about the presence of other REE and chemical elements and compounds. The most interesting REE-containing waste streams which were selected were: Fluorescent powder from spent lamps CRTs phosphors Spent NiMH batteries.   The selected materials were collected and sent to the research partners for evaluation of different recovery techniques within the other WP1 tasks.

REE Optimization Techniques

REE Optimization Techniques

Task 1.3, optimization techniques to recover the REE from the selected three waste residues in Task 1.1, is under development. The processes being researched are solvometallurgical and ionometallurgical methods, molten salt processes, HydroWEEE process and high temperature processes. From the results obtained up to now, it is clear that the optimized solution for the recovery of the REEs to be alloyed with magnesium will not consist of a unique process type but will involve a combination of several techniques specifically designed and verified for each material source. For example, very promising results have already been obtained for CRTs waste by integrated hydro, solvo and pyrometallurgical processes. Partners in Task 1.3 are working very closely with WP5 in terms of providing environmental and economic information from the processes developed for the LCCA analysis.
