RARE EARTH ELEMENTS PATENT
Rare earth elements have become a very important aspect of producing high technology products like cell phones, radios, computers, communication devices, batteries, and many other products. The vast majority of rare earth elements being currently produced are coming from the nation of China. Other countries including the US do have significant reserves of rare earth elements which these countries could mine. However, after the mining of these elements, they must be separated from each other in order to capture the value of some of the most sought after rare earth elements. This patent makes proprietary a certain method using the opposing forces of centrifugal force and electromagnets to separate these elements and target the rare earth elements of the greatest value. The patented process represents a significant advance in the separation of rare earth elements over the processes used today.
