Ultra-high Temperature Measurement and Modeling of an Induction-Heated Reactor for Rapid Molten Oxide Electrolysis of Rare Earths

Nakanishi, Bradley Rex
2013

The extraction of rare earth elements (REEs) from their oxide ores is of growing economic and political interest in the US. The electrochemical process termed molten oxide electrolysis (MOE), where metals are extracted from their oxides using heat and electricity, offers an environmentally-friendly alternative to current methods for REE extraction. In the previous semester, a novel in... read more
