Rare earth magnets from old computers to find use in electric Bentleys

"...Rare earth magnets form an important part of many of today's electronic devices, ranging from wind turbine generators to MRI scanners. Despite their prevalence, only a tiny fraction of these magnets are recycled once they reach the end of their lives, but a new project involving Bentley Motors is intended to steer this trend back in the right direction, by repurposing them for use in luxury vehicles. The new UK-funded venture goes by the name of the RaRE (Rare-earth Recycling for E-machines) and involves a number of industry partners in addition to Bentley, with a technology patented by researchers at the University of Birmingham and now licensed to spin-off company HyProMag serving as the bedrock..."

New NiMH batteries perform better when made from recycled old NiMH batteries

"..."The new method allows the upcycled material to be used directly in new battery production," says Dag Noréus, professor at the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry at Stockholm University who, together with other researchers, has conducted the study published in the scientific journal Molecules. The new recycling consists of mechanical washing and separation of reusable electrode material and corrosion products from old, used electrodes. "More than 95 percent is useful and several steps can be saved in the manufacture of new batteries that also get better performance..."
