The recycling of end-of-life products has garnered increasing attention since the emergence of electric vehicles. Europe has particularly recognized the critical importance of the raw materials employed in these vehicles (especially permanent magnets), notably heavy and low rare earth metals, and our substantial reliance on the Asian market, particularly China. One effective method of reutilizing these materials is through direct and indirect recycling processes, thereby producing new magnets.
