Rare Earth Technologies
IntelliMet's Spiderweb™ solid phase extraction units are an unprecedented technological breakthrough in Rare Earth Element production. Once the Rare Earth Elements have been liberated from an ore matrix, it is necessary to remove non-Rare Earth Element contaminants such as uranium, thorium, and iron. IntelliMet's highly sensitive, metal-specific solid phase extraction columns enable an efficient and sustainable separation of radioactive and other unwanted elements from Rare Earth Elements.
IntelliMet’s solid phase extraction offers a significant improvement over ion exchange technology by combining the best features of both solvent extraction and ion exchange. IntelliMet's solid phase extraction is an ~100X improvement in chemical kinetics providing near-solution phase kinetics with the engineering simplicity of ion exchange.
