Incentivizing Environmental Remediation through the Recovery of Rare Earth Elements

Register for this Event  

Rare earth elements (REEs) are crucial to modern technology. From smartphones and hi-tech weapons systems to the new wave of green energy infrastructure, millions of devices rely on REEs. A joint research project between West Virginia University and the National Energy Technology Laboratory aims to extract valuable rare earth elements from acid mine drainage—which could spur new economic opportunities in Appalachia and the rare earth metals industry in the U.S., all while tackling environmental remediation.
