From the study analysis it follows that petroleum fluids are the factor of isomorphic capacity and environment changes, particularly for terbium ([Tb.
The newer generation of lighting uses phosphors that contain rare earth elements, such as yttrium, terbium, europium, lanthanum, and cerium.
That applies particularly to the heavier rare earths dysprosium, terbium, and yttrium, whose ores are less common, Bauer says.
From this product, VNIIHT is currently conducting a further study, attempting to selectively extract each of the most valuable REOs: dysprosium, terbium, yttrium, neodymium, europium, and lutetium.
The bottom line is some of the materials we have at Bokan--the headline materials dysprosium, terbium, and europium--are very critically indispensable to energy technology for decreasing carbon emissions and also for military applications.

These light bulbs are rich in six different rare earths lanthanum, cerium, terbium, yttrium, europium and gadolinium which Solvay is now in a position to recycle while preserving 100% of their functional properties.
However, he emphasised that the world, including China, will require a "few" heavy rare earths ("HREE") producers to come on-stream, particularly those rich in dysprosium (Dy), terbium (Tb), europium (Eu), and neodymium (Nd).

1) There was already ample Western concern about potential diminishing access to supplies of REEs, particularly after a 2009 draft report written by China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology called for a total ban on foreign shipments of terbium, dysprosium, ytterbium, thulium, and lutetium, and a restriction of neodymium, europium, cerium, and lanthanum exports.
Inorganic fluorescents, especially europium (Eu) and terbium (Tb) in the lanthanide group, have several unique optical and electronic properties, such as size- and composition-tunable emission from visible to infrared wavelengths, large absorption coefficients across a wide spectral range, symmetric emission spectrum, a large Stokes shift, simultaneous excitation of multiple fluorescent colors, very high levels of brightness, and photostability (3-5).
The use of 25% lower price assumptions for Dysprosium Dy, Yttrium Y, Terbium Tb, Europium Eu and Neodymium Nd reduced the NPV by $1,021 million and was equivalent to raising the discount rate by 5.
