Innord to Separate Rare Earths from Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Recycling Pilot Study

Posted on

“It is important to plan ahead, and we are glad that vehicle manufacturers are looking at ways of recycling permanent magnets. We see a significant increase in sales of electric vehicles and in installation of wind turbines world wide, two major consumers of permanent magnets. We already see supply becoming available from these applications and with only more becoming available every year. China is clearly ahead of the curve and has been recycling these scrap magnets for many years already by using their existing solvent extraction facilities. The ISR technology should fit in perfectly to help this growing problem of recycling permanent magnets outside of China.” commented Kiril Mugerman, President and CEO of GéoMégA and Innord.

“With the major development events over the last 12 months for our separation technology and its application in the recycling of permanent magnets, Innord and Geomega are well positioned to become a leader in rare earth extraction and refining. As our technology matures and scales up, we should be in a position to supply rare earth oxides to North America and Europe and be ready to develop our rare earth Montviel project when the markets improve to justify new REE mining projects.” commented Kiril Mugerman, President and CEO of GéoMégA and Innord.

“Electric vehicles need magnet-based motors. Permanent magnets need rare earth oxides. To make rare earth oxides you need raw materials. While we own a world class deposit in Montviel, current market conditions make it difficult to develop new rare earth mines. Innord’s ISR technology can process various feeds which gives us a major advantage to be able to start producing rare earth oxides from such an important industrial source. We believe that rare earth magnets are the future of the rare earth industry and developing the recycling of permanent magnets and permanent magnet residues is just as important as developing new mines.” commented Kiril Mugerman, President and CEO of GéoMégA and Innord.

“We started developing the technology from very small scale. You need to be careful — it’s a difficult task. Separating earth elements is one of the most complex chemical processes in the world. Our idea was that we will have our own technology and that will help us to build a mine. The leverage really came when we started developing this technology. We decided that we didn’t want to have a black box where nobody knows how it works and we need to raise hundreds of millions of dollars to build a mine. Instead, we started going towards proving that our technology works by processing existing feeds. The best existing feed is an industrial residue, which is coming from the main application of rare earths — permanent magnets.
