In southern West Virginia, Omnis Sublimation Recovery Technologies (OSRT) will invest $60 million in Wyoming County to extract rare earth metals from coal waste impoundments. The company’s revolutionary technology and process will be used to supply the critical, strategic, and rare earth metals that are necessary for the building and manufacturing of smartphones, computers, and other high-performance electronic devices, as well as new high-performance building materials.

“OSRT is giving new life to West Virginia’s coal waste impoundments by using the only commercially viable process to extract strategic metals and rare earth elements without any waste and no negative environmental impact,” said OSRT’s Vice President of Global Sustainability and Innovation Michelle Christian. “West Virginia has continuously provided our great country with the highest quality natural resources that built our society for the last 200 years, and we are proud to be a part of the next generation.”
