Rare earth magnets, essential components in modern technologies such as electric motors and wind turbines, face supply chain complexities and market volatility, leading to their classification as critical materials.
This seminar will give an overview of rare earth magnet supply chains and explore the challenges and opportunities associated with alternative approaches including rare earth free magnets, reduced rare earth magnets, and magnet recycling.
The event will run from 09:00-17:00 (UK time) and will include talks and a tour.
