Sustainable Recovery, Reprocessing and Reuse of Rare-Earth Magnets in a Circular Economy (SUSMAGPRO)

Project description

New technologies for recycling neodymium magnets

Rare-earth magnets (neodymium-iron-boron magnets), the strongest type of permanent magnets available, are widely used in manufacturing modern technology products. They are applied in electronics, wind turbines, electric car motors and others. Unfortunately, most neodymium magnets available on the EU market come from third countries. The EU-funded SUSMAGPRO project aims to develop a pilot supply chain from recycled neodymium magnets in Europe. With the support of a multinational team and new technologies developed under the FP7 Remanence project, the product will be tested. These novel hydrogen technologies will be used in the separation and purification process. Remanufacturing will then take place to achieve different forms of magnets and the potential of the new method will be evaluated.
