Rare Earth Elements (REE) are used in many low carbon technologies, ranging from low energy lighting to permanent magnets in large wind turbines and hybrid cars. They are almost ubiquitous being found in every smartphone and computer, yet 97% of the world's supply comes from a few localities in China. In this project, the UK's geological research experts in rare earth ore deposits team up with leaders in
- geological fluid compositions and modelling,
- using fundamental physics and chemistry of minerals to model processes from first principles, and
- materials engineering expertise in extractive metallurgy.

NERC funding received for SoS Rare
The SoS RARE consortium project has been awarded funding by NERC and EPSRC under the Security of Supply of Mineral Resources (SoS Minerals) science programme, running from 2015 to 2019. The research team includes 17 investigators from six UK universities and research institutes, with ten industry partners and eight core international research collaborators. The project developed from two NERC-funded catalyst grants, GEM-CREE and MM-FREE. To follow our progress please access our official website here:
