Lynas’ vision is to be the leader in Rare Earths for a sustainable future. This vision is realised through the passion and the daily activities of our people. We plan to become the benchmark for security of supply and a world leader in quality and environmental responsibility to an international customer base. Production is scheduled to commence in the third quarter of 2011.
What we stand for
We are committed to the safety and health of our employees, our business partners and the public. Lynas will make an important contribution towards sustainable development by continually working to minimise our environmental footprint and making positive contributions to the communities in which we live.
Lynas is an Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) 100 listed company, with the strategy to create a reliable, fully integrated source of Rare Earths from mine through to market, and to become the benchmark for the security of supply and environmental standards in the global Rare Earths industry.
We are undoubtedly addicted to Rare Earths. These vital elements are the backbone to the devices we use on a daily basis, as well as the technologies that will contribute to the health of our planet. They are a unique group of 15 chemical elements in the periodic table known at the Lanthanide series, plus yttrium. Rare Earths underpin technologies that are fundamental in satisfying three key social trends: improving energy efficiency, enhancing environmental protection and miniaturization of digital technology.
Rare Earth Applications
Rare Earths make the world a brighter more vivid place with the wonders of light and brilliance of colour. If you look up, chances are the light above your head contains Rare Earths; your computer monitor contains Rare Earths; and without a doubt your colour television contains Rare Earths.
Wine turbines, hybrid vehicles, rechargeable batteries, mobile phones, plasma and Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) televisions, disk drives and catalytic converters are all dependent on the unique properties provided by Rare Earth elements.
