The Rare Earth Elements (REE) are found in lots of modern technologies, including computers, low energy lighting, energy storage devices, and large wind turbines, making their supply vital to our ever-growing technological society – as well as the development of a low carbon economy.
SoS RARE is a project carrying out research to better understand Rare Earth Element (REE) deposit types, and ensure REE are responsibly sourced. Research includes developing more efficient and environmentally-friendly ways to process REE deposits, and working on metrics to compare deposit characteristics. The SoS RARE project is supported by the Natural Environmental Research Council UK (NERC) SoS MinErals program.
