RecycLiCo™ Patented Process to Produce Recycled Sulfate Products from Battery Manufacturing Waste
American Manganese Inc. (“AMY” or the “Company”) is pleased to report continued cooperation with a tier-one lithium-ion battery manufacturing company, regarding additional recycling tests on their battery manufacturing waste product, to produce recycled sulfate products.
American Manganese previously reported test results on initial tier-one testing in late 2019, with the successful recovery of high purity (99.98% and 99.977%) nickel-cobalt hydroxide from the NCA cathode scrap material. Subsequently, American Manganese will be reporting on recycled sulfate products suited for the tier-one company’s manufacturing process.
The laboratory studies are conducted by the Company’s independent contractor, Kemetco Research, to analyze the optimum recycling conditions and produce a recycled product for the tier-one manufacturer’s evaluation.
“Recycling battery manufacturing waste is an immediate opportunity for battery manufacturers to take control of their supply chain amid battery-supply bottlenecks,” said Larry Reaugh, President and CEO of American Manganese. “Our patented RecycLiCo process is designed to produce recycled battery products that could be seamlessly integrated into the re-manufacturing of battery cathodes using minimal processing steps.”
