rare earth scandium production process

Production Process of Scandium Oxide TRUNNANO

Scandium oxide is one of the more important products in scandium products. Its physical and chemical properties are similar to those of rare earth oxides, so the production methods are also very similar. Under certain external conditions, Sc2O3 can produce products of metal scandium salts and various scandium alloys.

Environmental impacts of scandium oxide production from

Oct 10, 2020 The reason is that scandium oxide production needs a large amount of rare earths tailings, which takes about 6.4 t of rare earths tailings to produce 1 kg of scandium oxide. Processing these tailings can use a large amount of energy and materials, which also generates large emissions.

Scandium FAQ Scandium International Mining Corporation

Scandium is an element, often lumped together with the rare earth elements as is yttrium, but it is technically a light transition metal. It is relatively common in the earth's crust, where it readily forms as a compound oxide and tends to remain highly dispersed (low grade). Heavy weathering of surface soils can concentrate scandium, such as
