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.

For SocietyWe aim to realize the stable supply of resources by recovering rare metals from spent nuclear fuel and urban mines. We also aim to develop eco-friendly waste treatment technologies by improving separation and recovery technologies.
- Research on the immobilization of radioactive waste with a high concentration of sodium by the boric acid glass.
- Research on mutual separation of metal elements using a new solvent extractant.
- Research on optimizing structures of impregnated adsorbents for use in extraction chromatography.
