Dear Friends of TransTech,
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Summer is traditionally the busiest travel season. But for the NAFTC crew, the road trip never lets up, and later this fall we have a couple destinations where we hope to see you. Read on for all the details.
Through a collaborative research and development program with the National Energy Technology Laboratory, part of the U.S. Department of Energy, WVU is opening the Rare Earth Extraction Facility to bolster domestic supplies of rare earths, reduce the environmental impact of coal-mining operations, reduce production costs and increase efficiency for processing market-ready rare earths.
Additionally, the technology could create jobs, helping to revive economies that have been historically dependent on the coal industry.
