Opportunity: Advanced Processing of Rare Earth Elements and Critical Minerals for Industrial and Manufacturing Applications


Modification 000004 is issued to extend the due date for applications and remove the Phase 2 down-select. Modification 000003 is issued to extend the due date for applications, make clarifications within the FOA, and incorporate Appendix H. Modification 000002 is issued to provide a status update. Modification 000001 is issued to extend the due date for applications. This Funding Opportunity Announcement seeks research and development projects that will focus on innovative midstream processing technologies for the purification, recovery, individual separation and reduction to metals of high purity rare earth elements and other critical minerals from coal, coal by-products or alternate non-coal-based feedstock materials. The innovative midstream separation, purification and reduction to metal processes are required to be environmentally benign and sustainable, and have the potential for reduced capital costs and operating expenses in comparison to commercially available processes.
