Scope: This topic invites submissions on science discoveries and emerging technologies that enable sustainable extraction, processing, and separation of rare earths and other co-product metals from unconventional sources, including but not limited to mine tailings, acid drainage, coal ash, and oil field brines. Manuscripts that address advances in separations science, metals refining, process intensification, and technology scale-up are a good fit. Papers intended for a broad readership, including reviews or system analyses, are especially welcome.
