An Overview on Rare Earth Management in Malaysia

2017-1-17  Rare earth industry in Malaysia already started 20 years ago (Ali, 2014). It was owns by as a bigger shareholder and was operated by Asian Rare Earth Sdn. Bhd. at Bukit Merah, Perak. Radioactive materials leakage from this site alerted the country regarding rare earth environmental concerns which were worsened by mismanagement of various aspects. There is a tendency to conflate the past and the present given the negative history of minimal engagement, even though current rare earth mining and processing technologies are very different from the case in Bukit Merah, (Ali, 2014). Thus, it is important to properly manage the REEs for sustainable environment with the key factors such as resources, processing, disposal and policy for the sustainable environment that last long for future generation. Figure 1 below gives an overview of the management of REEs in Malaysia.
