Ticker : TSX-V: AMY | OTC US: AMYZF | FSE: 2AM


High Extraction and Purity of Lithium-ion Battery Cathode Materials

American Manganese Inc. is a critical metal company focused on the recycling of lithium-ion batteries using their RecycLiCo™ Patented Process. The process offers a closed-loop and environmentally friendly hydrometallurgical solution for the recycling of cathode materials from spent lithium-ion batteries and battery manufacturing scrap. The Company achieves high recovery and purity of materials such as lithium, cobalt, nickel, manganese, and aluminum from cathode chemistries such as NCA (lithium nickel cobalt aluminum oxide), NMC (lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide), LCO (lithium cobalt oxide), and LMO (lithium manganese oxide). The RecycLiCo™ patented process aims to produce materials as high-quality cathode precursor, that could be directly integrated into the re-manufacturing of battery cathodes using minimal processing steps.
