Panel: Recycling Magnet & Critical Materials: Paving the Way for Sustainable Resource Management

Recycling magnet and critical materials has become a pressing necessity in our quest for sustainable resource management. This panel will bring together experts, researchers, and industry leaders to explore the latest developments, challenges, and opportunities in recycling essential materials, including rare earth elements and other critical resources used in magnets and various high-tech applications.

The panelists will discuss cutting-edge recycling technologies and processes that enable the recovery and reuse of valuable materials from end-of-life products and waste streams. They will highlight successful case studies and initiatives that demonstrate the economic and environmental benefits of recycling these critical materials.

This discussion will also discuss the importance of a circular economy approach to ensure the responsible management of critical resources. The panelists will explore strategies for reducing dependency on primary raw materials by creating closed-loop systems that promote material recovery and minimize waste.
