Selective REE recovery from bauxite residue slags
In the framework of the European Training Network for Zero-Waste Valorisation of Bauxite Residue (REDMUD), an integrated process was developed by KU Leuven and RWTH Aachen University to selectively recover metallic iron and rare earths elements from slags produced during smelting of bauxite residue. The work is published in Hydrometallurgy (PTJ/RMR, Leuven 28/01/2019).
