Remaghic, two years running!

11/07/2017 by cidaut

Last September in San Sebastian, the Remaghic Project partners held the 24 month meeting general assembly. During the last months many decisions have been taken on the best chain of processes to recycle rare earths and on the design of the currently manufactured facility to recycle Mg and produce the Remaghic magnesium alloy. Currently, casting tests with different alloying elements have been done, corrosion and mechanical testing campaigns are ongoing, and the project faces the last project year where the industrial validation and the LCA will highlight the results achieved.

Partners of the Remaghic project met at the European Commission the past 2nd of February to present the project status after eighteen months of research. The project so far has developed a magnesium recycling methodology for magnesium scrap and scum with the collaboration of CIDAUT with Grupo Antolín, in which recycling efficiencies of 80% have been achieved. This work done at laboratory level will be upscaled in the second half of the project to reach a
