From its successful scaling of the new technology, REEtec is now moving forward and will start the construction of its first industrial separation plant located at Herøya, Norway.
REEtec has worked with its proprietary separation technology since 2008, and has matured it to a level where its ready for industrial production.
The REEtec process combines high efficiency and competitive cost structure with best in class environmentally friendliness. An important element in the process is that virtually all consumables are recovered and re-utilized. The energy demand is also very low and electricity consumption is based 100 % on hydro-electric sources from Norway's green grid. REEtec’s technology allows us to produce high quality products in a very efficient way and with a much smaller impact on the environment than any conventional rare earth separation process.
