Fundamental electrochemical study on neodymium molten salt electrolysis in fluoride bath
In the recent decades, the clean energy economy has been driving a rapidly increasing demand for rare earth materials with their applications in essential high technologies such as electric vehicles and wind turbines. The technologies for the winning of rare earth metals are developing. As the predominant winning technique, electrolysis of rare earth oxides in molten fluoride systems has been faced with two major problems: one is low energy efficiency and the other is high emissions of perfluorocarbons (PFCs). Therefore, there exists a need for the metallurgy community to address those problems ...
