Abstract:
Rhenium (Re) was the last natural element to be identified and is the rarest of metals. The most concentrated ore contains only about 1800 ppm Re. It has a very high melting point, which leads to uses in high temperature resistant applications like cataly

Novel Primary Processing of Scarce Element Ores

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Research Institution: Texas State University-San Marcos

Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: Bill Covington
Abstract:
The rare-earth elements (REEs) find uses in many high tech military applications, including night vision goggles, laser range finders, precision guided weapons, and stealth technology. Their high costs (up to $6800/lb. Scandium) are due to low concentration in ores and high cost of separation. … More
