Solvent extraction for processing rare earth elements (REE)

This month’s spotlight is on the processing of Rare Earth Elements (REE) using solvent extraction. REE’s are found in trace amounts in many phosphoric acid ores. These trace elements can be removed and concentrated to useful quantities using solvent extraction. The spotlight will focus on Europium and Yttrium extraction using Tri-n-butylphosphate.
