SecREEts project ended November 2022 with very good news for the first step towards RE separation in Europe as REEtec recently announced the building of their first industrial plant based on efforts in the SecREEts project.

Concentrate for the first separation plant has been secured from Canada as a decision to industrialise the RE extraction from the production of fertilisers is still pending. A state of the art electrowinning process has also been achieved through the SecREEts project and is ready for expansion pending feed material. In conclusion, all the industrial pilots have been successfully demonstrated to yield quality products suitable for a European value chain, including the verification of high quality magnets based on the project processes.
