Rare Earth Element Separation

UIT successfully operated two hydrometallurgical pilot plant campaigns in Germany. The results, indicate the successful extraction of Nd/Pr and other REE, contained in a high-purity rare earth oxide (REO). UIT is currently working on the verification in small industrial scale within the DOE (U.S. Department of Energy) founded project for facility design and engineering in preparation for the construction and operation of a Rare Earth Element (REE) Separation and Processing Demonstration Plant.

It utilizes the enhanced proprietary technology to produce several products- a high-purity neodymium/praseodymium (Nd/Pr) oxide, lanthanum (La) oxide, and a mixed mid-and heavy rare earth concentrate. The enhanced process is expected to significantly reduce process steps and operating costs as well as further reduce environmental impacts and associated costs.
