(658a) Recovery of Rare Earth Elements and Critical Materials from Coal and Coal-Based Resources

Alvin, M. A. - Presenter, US Department of Energy
DOE-NETL’s Feasibility of Recovering Rare Earth Elements Program has demonstrated the capability of generating rare earth elements (REEs) from coal and coal-based resources. R&D efforts are now focused on extracting, separating, and recovering REEs in domestic, bench- and small pilot-scale, coal-based, REE-processing systems. An overview of DOE-NETL’s REE Program and its technical accomplishments is presented.
