dc.description.abstractRare Earths are critical to the future of green technology, especially for wind turbines and electric vehicle motors. However, reducing these rare earths into their metals is challenging metallurgically and economically. An overview will be given on the state-of-the-art processes for reducing rare earths from the rare earth oxides to the rare earth metal. Included are some of the novel processes being developed in the field. The market for these processes is examined at an international level. Also, the capital and operating costs of the state-of-the-art processes, along with some of the novel processes, were examined. This lays the foundation for the direction of future trends in commercial rare earth reduction technology.
