Two technologies developed by the Critical Materials Institute (CMI) have been named 2018 R&D 100 Award finalists. The finalists were announced last week by R&D Magazine and are presented annually to the top 100 scientific innovations as selected by independent panel of more than 50 judges representing R&D leaders in a variety of fields.
CMI, a U.S. Department of Energy Innovation Hub led by Ames Laboratory, was selected for Acid-free Dissolution Recycling of Rare Earth Elements and Cobalt developed at Ames Laboratory; and for Electrochemically Recycling Electronic Constituents of Value (eRECOV), developed at Idaho National Laboratory and funded by CMI.

The R&D 100 Awards have long been considered the most globally prestigious recognition of invention and innovation. These prestigious awards recognize 100 of the top innovations across five categories: Analytical/Test, IT/Electrical, Mechanical Devices/Materials, Process/Prototyping, and Software/Services. The R&D 100 Award Winners and Finalists will be honored at a black-tie gala event on Nov. 16, 2018 at the Waldorf Astoria in Orlando, FL.
