Trinity College Dublin researchers created synthetic rocks and studied how they respond to diverse climatic circumstances to gain a fresh understanding of the creation of rare earth elements (REEs), which are becoming increasingly essential. REEs are used in a variety of electrical gadgets and renewable energy technologies, ranging from cellphones to e-cars.
The findings, which were recently published in the journal Global Challenges, have implications for recovering rare earth elements (REEs) from electronic waste, producing materials with cutting-edge functional capabilities, and potentially locating new REE resources that may be buried all over the world.
Many countries are hunting for larger REE deposits with viable levels; however, the extraction processes are often difficult, and the separation methods are costly and environmentally destructive.
