Abstracts

European REE Resources

 

Did we look everywhere?
Following 5 years of extensive research on locating European REE resources what did we find?
Have we left any REE-stone unturned?


REE processing technologies

 

Is it all about separation?
What are the technologies that can provide sustainable REE separation?
Can they take place in Europe?


Closing the loop on REE

 

Can it close?
Can urban recycling transcend from bulk metals to critical – trace metals?
Is REE urban mining feasible?
Are industrial wastes the next main REE resource?
Do they make sense only for Sc?


Emerging REE

 

Have you heard about Sc?
Why so much work on Sc?
Will it ever go in mass scale production?
Does Europe have a claim in the Sc race?
Are there new REE applications out here that can change the status quo of REE production?


REE Market and applications

 

New supply crisis or new bubble on the horizon?
Is the REE race restarting?
Will the world truly run short on vital enabling elements in the next years?
What happens to the not-so-critical REEs (the balance problem)?


The conference will include a special round-table session

 

Is there a future for a European REE industry?
Before asking the local oracle all these questions, we invite all stakeholders and experts to close the conference with an outlook to the future, baring the lessons of the recent past.
