“Kemetco has been extremely diligent in its research and development to verify that the process design will not only be successful in recovering cathode materials, but that it will be an effective process on an industrial scale,” American Manganese CEO Larry W. Reaugh said in a press release.

American Manganese plans to file a continuing patent application for the first two of five testing stages. The continuing patent application will be added to the company's patent-pending core technology.

The pilot plant in Arizona will process a ton of battery cathode material at 1 kilogram per hour, according to American Manganese.
