Recycling: Innovation through research

The joint cooperation between IMA and the two research institutes IMDEA Nanociencia (Spain) and IFE (Norway) has allowed development and successful implementation of a recycling method in production line.

This cost-efficient method treats the residues of ferrites generated during manufacturing of ferrites magnets. The result is a high-grade ferrite powder with superior properties to the starting material that can be used in the fabrication of new magnets.
