“What Are Rare Earth Elements”<br />13<br /><ul><li>Rare Earth Element or REE are Lanthanide series elements and are found at the bottom of the Periodic Table
15 elements plus Yttrium are classified as REE and have specific magnetic, fluorescent and chemical properties
Some are classed as Light, Medium or Heavy REE and have varying applications in laptops, LCD’s , cellular phones and hybrid vehicles.
Heavy REE such as Europium, Terbium and Dysprosium command the highest value</li></li></ul><li>14<br />Lighter Weight<br />Product Miniaturization<br />Enhanced Performance and Functionality<br />Enhanced Control and Measurement<br />Energy Efficiency / Environmental Compliance<br />Rare Earth ElementsIndustry Primer<br /><ul><li>Essential inputs for virtually all electronic products
