Why second life NdFeB magnets such as the ones recycled in MAGNETRONIC-REC could be interesting on many levels?

Recently, an article about the importance of recycling of NdFeB magnets in the wind industry has been published in the web of daily mail.

The article explain the natural disaster caused, in the mining town of Baiyun Obo, south of Mongolia, by the accumulation of highly toxic and radioactive waste resulting from the extraction and production of rare earths. Such spills are directly accumulated in a lake that is already known today as the most polluting in the world, releasing a huge smell of sulfur and acidity over any parameter.

These materials can be found in the magnets of the wind turbines, engines in electric cars, in tablets and flat-screen TVs, among others. The boom in technology that has increased the value of these lands justifies all those responsible for the business.

In addition, the article mentions the importance of recycling magnets containing these elements, in order to reduce or even eradicate these spills in the near future.
