Ames Laboratory scientists create cheaper magnetic material for cars, wind turbines
Cerium is a widely available and inexpensive rare-earth metal. US Department of Energy Ames Laboratory scientists have used it to create a high-performance magnet that's similar in performance to traditional dysprosium-containing magnets and could make wind turbines less expensive to manufacture.

New CMI process recycles valuable rare-earth metals from old electronics
Scientists at the Critical Materials Institute, headquartered at the Ames Laboratory, have developed a two-step recovery process that makes recycling rare-earth metals easier and more cost-effective. The process uses differences between the solubility properties of difference elements to separate out rare-earth metals.

Could I squeeze by you?
Scientists at the US Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory have developed deeper understanding of the ideal design for mesoporous nanoparticles used in catalytic reactions, such as hydrocarbon conversion to biofuels. The research will help determine the optimal diameter of channels within the nanoparticles to maximize catalytic output.

Ames Lab creates multifunctional nanoparticles for cheaper, cleaner biofuel
The US Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory has created a faster, cleaner biofuel refining technology that not only combines processes, it uses widely available materials to reduce costs. Ames Laboratory scientists have developed a nanoparticle that is able to perform two processing functions at once for the production of green diesel, an alternative fuel created from the hydrogenation of oils from renewable feedstocks like algae.

Ames Lab researchers see rare-earth-like magnetic properties in iron
Scientists at the Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory have observed magnetic properties typically associated with those observed in rare-earth elements in iron. These properties are observed in a new iron based compound that does not contain rare earth elements, when the iron atom is positioned between two nitrogen atoms. The discovery opens the possibility of using iron to provide both the magnetism and permanence in high-strength permanent magnets, like those used in direct-drive wind turbines or electric motors in hybrid cars.
