ReElement is the complete modular, adaptable, deployable, and circular critical mineral refining company that produces Magnet-grade rare earth elements and battery-grade cathode active materials.

ReElement is challenging the mineral processing status quo by deploying scalable refining technology across the globe a decentralizing the supply chain for rare earth elements and critical battery metals

Company history

Founded on Environmental Stewardship

Quest Energy

The Early Days

Quest Energy, later to become American Resources Corporation, began with co-founders Mark Jensen and Thomas Sauve investing in diverse energy and natural resource assets linked to critical infrastructure such as metallurgical coal processing with the goal to improve and steward those assets back to their true value.

American Resources Corporation

The NASDAQ-Listed Parent Organization

In 2017, Jensen and Sauve expanded the Quest Energy team and brought the company public. Now known as “American Resources,” the company began operating key metallurgical coal assets in Eastern Kentucky. It was through those operations the founders discovered valuable rare earth elements in their coal pond tailings and processing byproducts. That discovery led to their deep dive into technologies that could recover those valuable rare earth elements cost-effectively.

American Rare Earth

The Start of Something Big

In June 2020, American Rare Earth was created as a fully-owned subsidiary of American Resources Corporation. American Rare Earth licensed the patent to commercialize Professor Linda Wang’s chromatography technology from Purdue University with the initial scope to recover and refine rare earth elements from manufacturing byproducts and recycled permanent magnets.

ReElement Technologies

Poised to Rewrite Global Supply Chains

American Rare Earth quickly grew and attracted global attention for the technology’s effectiveness in recovering and refining both rare earth elements and critical battery elements from cathode active materials. By 2022, it was clear the original American Rare Earth project had grown a life of its own and was poised to completely disrupt the global rare earth element and lithium battery supply chains. In July 2022, American Rare Earth was rebranded “ReElement Technologies Corporation,” and is now expected to spin-off into its own company separate from the parent organization, American Resources Corporation.

Parent Organization of ReElement Technologies Corporation & Subsidiaries

American Resources is the NASDAQ-listed (AREC) parent company of ReElement Technologies Corporation (ReElement). With ReElement Technologies Corporation soon to be spun off into its own company American Resources will continue to be a key investor and developer of critical resources projects and organizations across the globe.

ReElement Technologies Corporation

A subsidiary of American Resources Corporation (NASDAQ: AREC)

ReElement Technologies Corporation (ReElement) is a process company focused on developing our core refining technology capable of being deployed cost-effectively and rapidly globally. The patent to the refining technology platform is owned by Purdue Research Foundation and licensed to ReElement for commercial development and deployment.

ReElement Africa

A subsidiary of ReElement Technologies Corporation

ReElement Africa is the African subsidiary of ReElement Technologies Corporation focused on deploying the refining technology in Africa to facilitate and catalyze local African refining and advanced manufacturing. Deployment of our platform in Africa is made possible due to the technology’s inherent features such as the modular construction, feedstock adaptability, small footprint co-locatability, and process input reuse or circularity. ReElement Africa is currently establishing the first lithium refining facility in Africa in Ghana through our subsidiary, ReElement Ghana.

American Rare Earth licensed the patent to commercialize Professor Linda Wang’s chromatography technology from Purdue University with the initial scope to recover and refine rare earth elements from manufacturing byproducts and recycled permanent magnets.

our facilities

The Flexibility to Build a Centralized Processing Site or Ship and Deploy a Modular Refining Facility

ReElement Indiana Commercialization Facility

A World Class Technology Development Facility

ReElement Technologies Corporation owns and operates the Indiana Commercialization Facility in Noblesville, Indiana. Around 700 square meters of processing space, our commercialization facility completes the loop with both battery and magnet preprocessing, chromatographic processing and post-processing to produce ultra pure rare earth element oxides and lithium battery CAM hydroxides, carbonates, and sulfates.

ReElement Marion Advanced Technology Center

Recover the Past. Rebuild the Future.

Over 50,000 square meters of centralized industrial space in Marion, Indiana, this historic facility was once home to American technology giants such as Thompson Electronics, Farnsworth Radio, and RCA. ReElement Technologies Corporation purchased this mega site in 2023 and is currently renovating the space to be our first commercial-scale refining site capable of producing metric tons of rare earth element oxides, lithium carbonate, lithium hydroxide, nickel sulfate, cobalt sulfate, and manganese sulfate.

ReElement Ghana Lithium Processing Facility

The First African Lithium Processing Site

ReElement Technologies Corporation’s subsidiary, ReElement Africa, is expected to build the first lithium processing facility in Africa designed to source regional African lithium spodumene mineral ores to refine into battery-grade lithium carbonate and lithium hydroxide. The site will begin construction with a pilot and research facility co-operated with Ghana’s University of Mines and Technology (UMaT) followed by the full-scale commercial lithium processing mega site making this the first lithium refining facility on the continent of Africa.
