Method for Separating and Recovering Rare Earth Elements Using Bacteria


For Rare Earth Element refineries who desire to increase yields, our method to separate and recover rare earth elements provides a non-toxic method for material extraction. Unlike current techniques, our process avoids the need for many of the toxic chemicals required for extraction, and provides for an economically viable alternative for REE extractions in locations previously deemed non-profitable.
