Florida Polytechnic University professors with advanced research in fields such as nanotechnology, rare earth element recovery, and electrical and computer engineering have been named to a prestigious list of the world's top 2% of scientists.
Research scientists and industry leaders from across the country converged at Florida Polytechnic University to learn about research in the area of rare earth element (REE) extraction at the CMI 2023 Phosphate Workshop.
The production of computers, solar panels, smartphones, electric cars, and more all rely on a steady supply of rare earth elements. China currently supplies most of the world's rare earth elements, but a new Department of Energy grant awarded to Florida Polytechnic University's Florida Industrial and Phosphate Research Institute (FIPR) aims to change that.
Research underway at Florida Industrial and Phosphate Research Institute (FIPR), a research entity within Florida Polytechnic University, was featured on “Action News Jax” as part of an investigative report on the future production of rare earth elements in the United States.
BARTOW, Fla. - Children at schools and libraries in Polk and Hillsborough counties soon will be able to uncover real, prehistoric megalodon teeth, whale vertebrae, seashells, and mollusks - all between 5 million and 24 million years old.
