As the global community strives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change, green technologies are becoming a top priority, in turn increasing the demand for Rare Earth Elements (REEs) as they are crucial in the production of clean energy. This increase in demand has led to the search for alternative sources of REEs, hence the recovery from fly and bottom ash, a waste product from the burning of coal for energy. This paper will discuss the extraction of REEs from the coal ash of SaskPower's Poplar River Thermal Power Plants.
