European Rare Earth Magnet Recycling Network (EREAN)

Start date: Sep 1, 2013, End date: Aug 31, 2017,

"Because China dominates the rare-earth market and is reducing its export quota, there is a very high supply risk for rare earths in Europe. To tackle this rare-earth crisis, Europe needs to invest in primary mining, substitution and, in particular, urban mining/recycling. To date, less than 1% of the rare earths are being recycled, due to, amongst others, a lack of efficient recycling technologie ...
