REBCO Recycling Process
We have developed process of chemical dissolution of YBCO waste in concentrated nitric acid, followed by precipitation and calcination steps to produce a recycled YBCO precursor powder. This allows us to easily process other types of REBCO waste such as sputtering targets, granulates and possibly even thin-film superconducting tapes.
Our results have been published in Journals of Materials Chemistry C
