Submission + - Japan Recycles Rare Earth Metals from Electronics (nytimes.com)

Black Gold Alchemist writes: Dowa, a Japanese mining company in Kosaka has begun the recycling of rare earth metals from used cellphones and computers. This is in response to a recent, temporary trade embargo from China, which is the leading supplier of rare earth metals needed for production of products including hybrid cars, wind turbines, and LCD screens. Because of the shortage of rare earth metals, the Japanese trade minister, Akihiro Ohata is asking the government to include a rare earth strategy in its supplementary budget for this year.
