WVU Researcher Work on Acid Mine Drainage Featured In Video

Editor’s Note: The attached video provides a fascinating “first-hand” account about the work by Paul Ziemkiewicz and his team at WVU for extraction of rare earth elements from coal-based rare earth elements acid mine drainage.  Professor Ziemkiewicz and his team are working on the effort in relation to a program with the Department of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL).

Researchers at WVU are working to refine the process of recovering valuable rare earth elements from acid mine drainage sludge. The sludge is a byproduct of the water treatment process and was a waste product with no value, until now.
