  10. Upscaling and Optimization of Magnet to Magnet Recycling

    SBC: Urban Mining Company            Topic: DLA161003

    Neodymium-iron-boron rare-earth based magnets are key components of mobile phones, electric vehicles, wind-turbines and many critical US defense systems. Despite their importance, the US is completely reliant on imports from China for their supply. Future supply risk renders this situation untenable, yet re-establishing the supply chain for these magnets in the US could take two decades. Urban Min ...
