About the Project
The rare earth elements are critical metals; Scotland, the UK and Europe are hugely dependent on their supply from further afield. The criticality of such materials is a dynamic phenomenon, dependent on balancing usage, stocks and politics; the EU wide assessment in 2017 identified 27 critical raw materials. Within this study the 17 rare earth elements are grouped into the light REEs and the heavy REEs, both groups being of significant economic importance as they are vital to the manufacture of many hi-tech products. Light REEs have the highest supply risk to the EU of all critical raw materials, closely followed by heavy REEs, thus their recovery should be prioritised at every opportunity.
