Rare Earth Elements: Extraction, Separation, Characterization, Economics, Criticality, and Kinetics

Granite, E. J., United States Department of Energy

This symposium will cover aspects of rare earth element recovery, extraction, and separation. The focus of the session will be on rare earth elements related to fossil energy, but other rare earth element technologies and processes are also welcomed and encouraged Topics will include, but not be limited to: - Rare earth element recovery from fossil fuel derived solids and liquids - Rare earth elements in coal and petroleum fuels - Rare earth element chemistry in power systems - Mining waste - Fly ash and slag - Separation methods - Rare earth geochemistry, including modes of occurrence - Measurement and characterization: challenges and solutions - Modeling - Mining and recovery methods in industry - Extraction from Phosphogypsum, Red Mud, Electronics, Phosphors, & Wastes - Microwave pretreatment for REE extraction - Supercritical Fluid Extraction - Utilization in Hybrid Car Batteries, Electronics, Phosphors, Catalysts and Wind Turbine Magnets - Novel Materials Employing the Lanthanides
