In this Phase I SBIR proposal, Reactive Innovations, LLC will demonstrate the technical and economic viability of a room temperature environmentally friendly technology for extraction and separation of light rare earth metals (lanthanides) with improved efficiency. Rare earths currently require multiple separation steps to yield high purity material. Decreasing the number of separation processes would significantly decrease the cost of the materials. Reactive Innovations proposes to demonstrate both the extraction and separation of individual lanthanides using an innovative technique in a novel solvent.
