The Rare Earth Elements REEs consist of 16 metals, specifically the 15 lanthanide elements and yttrium, which is typically found in the same mineral deposits as the lanthanides. Scandium can be associated with the rare earth elements, but is usually only present in trace amounts, and therefore omitted.
Jul 14, 2020 The estimated value of rare-earth compounds and metals imported by the United States increased approximately 6.25 in 2019. Although the REEs are relatively abundant in the Earths crust, they are difficult to mine as REEs are not found in large quantities or in veins like other minerals such as gold.
Jan 01, 2021 Baseline values of the important parameters including rare earth metal concentration and price, adsorbent need, cost and lifetime have been identified. This information together with a flowsheet model were used to estimate the operating and capital costs of the extraction process.
Sulfuric acid baking allows for the selective extraction of rare earth metals from scrap Nd 2 Fe 14 B magnets. This process has the advantage of making the high-value rare earth metals water soluble while converting the contained iron, around 70 of the magnets mass, into stable and insoluble iron III oxide, eliminating the need for separating and precipitating iron from solution.
In the case of rare earth metals, the applicable processes are strongly influenced by the melting points of the metals and their vapor pressure at the melting point. This influence is clearly brought out in Figure 5.1 which depicts the generalized sequence of processes for purification of rare earth metals
Dec 04, 2019 Rare Earth Metals and Their Applications . In the periodic table of the elements, the third column lists the rare earth elements. The third row of the third column is expanded below the chart, listing the lanthanide series of elements. Scandium and Yttrium are listed as rare earth metals, although they are not part of the lanthanide series.

Apr 16, 2021 Rare-earth metals are currently mined or recovered via e-waste recycling methods with drawbacks including high cost, environmental damage, and risks to human safety. This is where we come in.
Jan 21, 2021 Separately, there are environmental concerns. Many rare earth ore deposits contain radioactive elements, making extraction and processing harmful to the soil, water and human health. Moreover, the chemicals required to either remove the metals from the topsoil or in mines cause air pollution and can leach into the groundwater. Spotlight on China
Jun 26, 2018 This is reflected in the compounded annual growth rate of 13.7 that is expected between 2017 and 2021 for the global rare-earth metal market. Reference Daily. 1 The global rare earth market is, however, modest at 9 billion and an annual consumption of about 150,000 tons of rare-earth oxide REO worldwide.
