New Energy Materials Science Laboratory

Contributing to industrial revitalization by effectively using limited resources

Our laboratory is conducting research on separation and recovery technologies, which are used to extract elements from ores to make materials and recover reusable elements from disposed industrial products. They are very important technologies in manufacturing. Our laboratory is developing technologies to recover rare metals and other useful metals from spent nuclear fuels and urban mines at high purity and high efficiency.
