Disassembled End-of-Life Lithium-ion Batteries and Scrap Cathode Materials Received from Asia, North America, and Europe
American Manganese Inc. (“AMY” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company’s independent contract lab, Kemetco Research, has begun testing third-party lithium-ion battery materials, following the successful testing of the pilot plant project’s fifth and final stage, announced in the Company’s September 17, 2019 news release.
The third-party materials are disassembled end-of-life lithium-ion batteries and manufacturing scrap cathode sent from Asia, North America, and Europe. The third-party material will undergo all five stages of the Company’s patented lithium-ion battery recycling process, RecycLiCo™, to achieve high recovery and battery grade purity of lithium, nickel, cobalt, and manganese.
“We are extremely pleased with the development and testing of our lithium-ion battery recycling pilot plant project,” said Larry Reaugh, President and CEO of American Manganese. “We are in an excellent position to demonstrate our years of experience to potential tier-one partners in the lithium-ion battery industry.”
Test results will be reported as they are completed and received.
