Rare Earth Elements (REE) are used in a wide range of applications, e.g. permanent magnets and accelerators, for wind turbines, in chemical industries and many more, but the socio- economical impact of mining and processing is disastrous. Recycling and thus recovery of these materials are not yet established on an industrial scale. In our workshop we are going to present approaches for the REE and to discuss options for a certification process for mining and processing of REE.
