Rare earths

The term "rare earths" includes 17 elements of the periodic table.

They are also called rare earth metals. They are actually common and are used in the production of electronics such as smartphones, notebooks and electric motors. In addition to mining rare earth metals, they can also be obtained through recycling.


The hardware that can be purchased via ALSO is partly produced using rare earth metals. By recycling hardware with Webinstore, the use of these metals is reduced. Furthermore, we maintain a dialogue with manufacturers about reducing or eliminating their use.
