Life cycle assessment (LCA) of permanent magnets

About The Webinar

This webinar is an activitiy linked to the European project ' Rare earth reduction in high performance permanent magnet electric machines' (LowReeMotors)

The LowReeMotors project will develop efficient motors with Nd-Lean magnets. Developed permanent magnets will content up to 10% less rare earth elements. It is critical to assess the product lifecycle and highlight the hotspots and bottlenecks in the product value chain that contribute the most to the environmental impact of these magnets.
This webinar will introduce LCA and its applications, including its application to magnets.
