Default New critical minerals research could lead to local manufacturing boost

The new Lynas Rare Earths Processing Facility in Kalgoorlie, WA has recently received Environmental Approval, which will enable the manufacture of many high-tech products.

Additionally, newly funded research at the University of South Australia could further transform the way rare earth elements and other vital battery metals are recovered from the earth, enabling efficient extraction with decreased environmental footprint.

Dr Richmond Asamoah from UniSA’s Future Industry Institute is developing new ways to safely extract critical minerals from downstream ore processing, tailings reprocessing, and wastewater treatments. He is also developing mechanisms to safely recycle spent products from scrap batteries and magnets. read article
