Innovation technology of rare earth metals production has been created in Russia

The output of rare earth metals in Russia is almost absent despite of the potential demand from the part of domestic and foreign companies. The reasons are the extremely difficult and expensive methods of their production, absence of industrial production though in Russia there is a technology of extraction of rare earth metals out of phosphorous acid – a semi-product of processing of apatite concentrate.

“This technology is based on the sorption extraction of rare earth metals’ combinations out of wet-process phosphoric acid at a special machine installed in the cycle of production of mineral fertilizers by the sulfur acid scheme with further extraction cleaning and separation of rare earth metals. Such production differs by its effectiveness due to the absence of necessity to found a mining and  processing plant, development of transport and logistics schemes as well as the absence of radioactivity and necessity of waste burial, that is typical to rare earth metals extraction out of other raw materials sources.
