U.K. Rare Earth Firm Pensana Joins Equinor to Look at Recycling Magnets

As governments look to secure supplies of crucial rare earth materials, the U.K.’s Pensana Plc signed an agreement with energy company Equinor ASA to look at developing a low-energy method for recycling magnets.
The accord is for magnets from wind turbine nacelles -- the central hub that allows it to generate electricity -- to be recycled using hydrogen at Pensana’s hub at the Saltend Chemicals Park. The rare earth company is targeting recycling an annual market of 4,000 tons of end-of-life magnets.
Rare earths are crucial to high-tech products from computer hard drives to missile-guidance systems and are an essential part of green-related products that are key to tackling climate change. While they are fairly common, China has dominated processing of the materials for more than a decade, and prices have surged lately as demand outpaced production. That’s prompting a search to secure more supply.
Using hydrogen at the Saltend facility will help offer a production alternative that uses 88% less energy than virgin magnet manufacturing, the company said in a statement.
