New Funding to Study Extraction of Critical Materials

A team lead by Michael Servis receives $2.4 M over three years to study “Phase transitions and mesoscale aggregation in liquid-liquid extraction of rare earth elements. The team includes Brian Stephenson (MSD), Maria Chan (NST), and Subramanian Sankaranarayanan (NST).

“For more than 75 years, the scientists, engineers and researchers at Argonne National Laboratory have broken barriers, accomplished scientific milestones and uncovered monumental discoveries in energy that have benefited our entire planet. That is why I am thrilled that Argonne has received more than $2 million in funding to build on this historic success through the research of the rare-earth minerals we need to create cleaner, more sufficient energy,” said Rep. Marie Newman (IL-03). “This research is key to ensuring the United States has the clean energy and sustainable technology to power us through the 21st Century. We are so proud to have this cutting-edge innovation right in our own backyard, and I will continue to advocate for funding and support for Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District’s very own Argonne National Laboratory. ”  [Read More]
