Research Institution
Urban Mining Company has invented and patented a Magnet to Magnet recycling Process that allows us to take low grade NdFeB magnet scrap, reduce it to a powder, then recycle it into high performance magnets capable of functioning in the most stringent civilian and military applications.Our process is environmentally friendly; as it does not involve large scale melting smelting nor toxic chemicals and it does not rely on rare-earth mining. The energy savings, savings on raw materials, coupled with the fact that is a low dysprosium magnet technology make Magnet to Magnet recycling a one stop solution for America's NdFeB magnet supply as we can operate outside of the normal supply chain.Our process requires some process control R&D in order that we can work with all grades of scrap magnets and so that we can precisely control the magnetic properties of our products.
