Creating a Circular Supply Chain for Rare Earth Elements

We are helping the world transition to an environmentally responsible future by recovering rare earth elements from the difficult-to-recycle products of the modern world.

We help businesses recycle, provide the market with a secure and regional supply of critical metals, and do so in an ethical, economic, and sustainable way.

Our Impact

Fewer CO₂ Emissions
Recycled rare earth elements require as little as 20% of the CO₂ emissions of newly mined material
Less Mining
Diverting material back into the supply chain reduces pressure to open new greenfield mines
Increased Local Supply
Improving the resilience of supply chains, creating jobs, and enabling new technologies by providing a regional supply of critical metals

Rare earth elements are critical to the modern world

As demand grows for wind turbines, electric vehicles, and other electronics, new sources of rare earth elements to support the world’s transition to an electrified society are needed. While new mines are necessary to meet projected demand, having access to recycled material will significantly reduce the need to open new mines.

Wind Turbines
A single off-shore wind turbine can contain nearly 10 tonnes of rare earth magnets
Electric Vehicles
Powerful traction motors contain rare earth magnets and are used in electric vehicles to increase vehicle range and efficiency
Electronics
Cell phone screens, speakers, and displays use rare earths to miniaturize components and maximize functionality

Creating a regional supply chain

Rare earth elements are currently not recycled on a commercial scale and end up in landfills. Cyclic Materials is creating a circular supply chain of rare earth elements by taking these landfill-bound products and recovering their critical metals.

An innovative process

Given the important role rare earth elements play in modern society, recovering these critical metals provides an opportunity to reduce waste and provide a more environmentally sustainable source to domestic industry.

Engineering a new approach

Our team consists of highly motivated individuals with diverse skill sets. Combining the technical knowledge of our engineers with the business acumen of our directors was key to forming a team capable of changing the life cycle of rare earth elements.
