It is therefore necessary to consider recycling NdFeB from existing products, rather than seeking more primary sources and producing more waste. It has been estimated that approximately 2,000-3,000 tonnes per year of NdFeB will be available for recycling by 2020, which presents a significant opportunity. But currently, the only way to recover end of life (EOL) magnets from waste streams of electric and electronic equipment is by shredding, recycling by chemicals, and remanufacturing by pyrometallurgical routes, which is expensive, energy intensive and not very environmentally friendly. This is where SUSMAGPRO comes into play. Nineteen European organisations decided to join forces and started the project in June 2019 to address these challenges.
