Rumors Dismantled on Rare Earth Over Supply: Demand Enters ‘Growth Mode’

November 19, 2012 — “[Electron Energy Corporation] was one of the first producers of rare earth magnetic producers in the world” states Peter Dent of Electron Energy Corporation (EEC). In this recent interview, Tracy Weslosky, Publisher of ProEdgeWire ( asks Peter his thoughts on the current rumors surrounding the oversupply of rare earths coming from China, while listening to what he considers to be the top contested rumors in the industry. In turn, Peter shares with the audience his view of why he considers the demand in rare earths to be in ‘growth mode’ and what really makes rare earths, rare. Peter also remarks on the technological advancements coming out of Electron Energy Corporation and how that will impact their bottom-line and enhance their role in the supply chain. Electron Energy Corporation (EEC) is a fully integrated innovator, designer and manufacturer of rare earth magnets and rare earth magnet assemblies.

  1. Always great to hear from rare earth applications/end users… We often hear from the supply side speaking to consumption, however many of them are giant steps upstream from the consumer and don’t necessarily grasp downstream processing considerations. Thanks as always Peter

  2. Tracy, just came across the interview you did with Peter Dent, very nearly three years ago:

    At the time it was highly informative, practical hands on, but looking back now even more remarkable for its continued relevance.

    Subsequent note on the Electron Energy Corporation website:

    “EEC is a U.S. producer of rare earth magnets and the only company in the world to produce ultra-high temperature Sm-Co magnets capable of operating continuously at temperatures up to 550°C, holding a broad U.S. patent to protect this technology. EEC has received SBIRs and STTRs from NASA, DOE, NSF, EPA and DOD sponsors.”

    Just a suggestion, but I thought it might interesting if you could engage Peter again for an update on their development progress, particularly considering the sponsorship above. Appreciate if you would consider it, we talk of a lack of a US MSC here, ECC appears to be doing something practical about building one.
