Reclaiming rare earths

Image Ames Laboratory researchers are working to more effectively remove the neodymium, a rare earth element, from the mix of other materials in a magnet. Initial results show recycled materials maintain the properties that make rare-earth magnets useful. The process uses magnesium to remove neodymium and other rare earths from magnet scrap.
