Rare earth elements have properties that make them useful in many applications. This project analyzed the application of biooxidation to the extraction of REEs from coal waste as a means of economically separating REEs from their constituents. Analysis of the recoveries showed that the primary element in the recovery was Yttrium (Y) at 22%, followed closely Cerium at 21% of total recovery.
