Corby Anderson at Colorado School of Mines leads the CMI project "Recovery of critical materials as by-products"
Project Description: Three tasks focus on cobalt, gallium, germanium, indium and tellurium recovery from secondary industrial sources or deposits. There is limited, if any, domestic production of these key critical materials. There are US operations and deposits that can serve as sources of these. National Lab partners are actively engaged along with industry to advance technological research and development leading to a domestic source of these materials.
