The rare-earth element Balance Problem revisited

Following their previous, widely-cited work with respect to the rare-earth element Balance Problem, Prof. Binnemans and colleagues have just published a thorough update of this key issue in a review article in the Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy. The paper is a... read more

REMAGHIC – Two years Running

Last September in San Sebastian, the Remaghic Project partners held the 24 month meeting general assembly. During the last months many decisions have been taken on the best chain of processes to recycle rare earths and on the design of the currently manufactured... read more

WP4 – Validation of the New Recycling Plant

The performance of the Mg Recycling Test Unit has been verified by performing different tests, checking movements, automation, melting and heating system, correct scrap charge and ingots discharge. Its validation will be completed by realizing melting tests in... read more

WP1 – Recovery Demonstrator

WP1 partners are working in order to describe the technical feasibility of the selected route (La and Ce recovery from NiMH batteries) at a higher TRL and its economic and environmental assessment (task 1.4). A detailed evaluation of the different steps involved in... read more

WP5 – Life-Cycle Analysis (II)

CIDAUT and Grupo Antolín have analyzed, through LCA models, the environmental impact of different technical options for the Remaghic Mg recovery system under development, in order to define the pilot plant where validate the developed process. The higher amount of... read more

WP5 – Life-Cycle Analysis (I)

Fraunhofer Institute ICT, in the framework of the Remaghic project, successfully obtained results for the environmental and economic criterion for 6 REE Recycling Process routes. Life Cycle Assessment studies have been performed, following the international standards... read more

WP3 – Characterization of REE+Mg Alloys

The different alloys studied will be characterized during Task 3.4 and the most suitable ones will be chosen for the defined use cases. A first analysis of the composition and chemical properties has been carried out.... read more

WP4 – Design of the New Recycling Plants

During Task 4.1 a Demonstration System has been developed. A lay-out adapted to the final available location in the industrial facilities has been designed and then, the installation has been manufactured and installed for its validation. read more

WP1 – The Balance Problem

One of the activities performed within WP1 is the “REE Balance Problem Analysis” (Task 1.2). The “Balance Problem” is here defined as the balance between the demand by the economic markets and the rare-earth elements (REEs) in ores. The report contains an overview for... read more

WP3 – REE+Mg Alloying Process

The main objective of this Work Package is the development and characterization of the best possible Mg+REE alloys for the Remaghic Project use cases (Automotive, Bio-technology and Aerospace). These activities have mainly focused on the selection of the rare earths... read more

18M General Assembly Meeting

Remaghic Consortium, in which TECNALIA takes part, met to review the progress focused on REE extraction, Mg recycling methodologies and the development of alloying processes. The feedback received from the European Commission was very positive. Now Remaghic needs to... read more
