Rare Earth Magnets Are Vital To A Clean Energy Future

NdPr is a key raw material used in the automotive, portable electronics, clean energy, aerospace and healthcare sectors. The fastest growing and highest value market for NdPr is in rare earth permanent magnets. These magnets are three times stronger than, and a tenth the size of, conventional magnets. They are one of the reasons why everyday items have become smaller, lighter, more mobile, more efficient and more affordable.
