In light of the world’s search for new, clean and sustainable sources of energy, and the trend towards (renewable energy) that mainly depends on what has become called green technology) (mainly derived from air and the sun), the problem of the need for modern technologies has emerged into rare earth elements whose prices have increased Significantly (due to the scarcity of existence and the difficulty of extraction and monopoly), which negatively affected the cost while increasing the demand for it significantly. Hence, countries began to develop strategies for restoration Recycling and manufacturing of these accurate technologies is the strategic importance of these elements by using them at the global level as an alternative source of energy in addition to their use in the manufacture of superconducting electrical vectors that enter in advanced industries such as phones, hard disks and magnetic resonance devices and the use of analogues of these elements in radiotherapy and radar devices. The paper reviews the waste management strategy to avoid or minimize as much environmental pollution as possible. The sequence of waste management strategies (and the implications for raising the efficiency and productivity of materials and energy) must be followed and applied. It is based on principles: the use of clean production techniques - the formation of closed circuits (recycling) - the environmentally appropriate disposal of waste and waste and the establishment of strict restrictions to limit exports. The paper reviewed the role of the Sudanese Ministry of Minerals represented by the General Authority for Geological Research in developing doctoral and master's research on these strategic minerals and providing the authority's laboratories with all techniques to facilitate research methods and exploring these rare elements and promoting them regionally and globally. In conclusion, this paper presents a proposal for an Arab strategic plan to develop the exploitation of these minerals and preserve the country's wealth.
