Strategic raw materials for high technology



Several research groups including geoscience, chemistry, environment, health, and metallurgy are actively conducting researches at the center




We have several laboratories in the research center such as mineral processing, chemical processing, and material characterization labs 




Several research projects are being conducted at the research and application center 



The main goals are;

  • To understand the mineralogical and petrological characteristics of rare earth mineralizations in Turkey, and to develop geological, geochemical and geodynamic models for prospecting of new resources,

  • To perform scientific researches on the ore dressing by chemical methods which are not hazardous for the environment,

  • To develop new areas of usage for rare earths and new products with high added value, which are vital components of high technology,

  • To set the basis for the development of a REE industry in Turkey, and to support the creation of production strategies and determination of rational economic policies for our country,

  • To enhance scientific collaborations with other relevant national organizations (e.g.; NATEN, MTA, Eti Maden) and international institutions/research groups.
