Toyota’s New Magnet Won’t Depend on Some Key Rare-Earth Minerals

Toyota’s new magnet won’t depend on some key rare-earth minerals

The new magnet Toyota developed also uses no terbium or dysprosium, which can be added to neodymium to improve its operability at high heat, above 100 degrees Celsius (212 degrees Fahrenheit). (In fact, mining consultancy Roskill notes that few automakers use terbium in magnets anymore, though dysprosium is still commonly added to magnets with neodymium.)
