American Manganese's recycling technology continues to prove itself, with highest purity rates to date

It's technology recycles spent lithium-ion batteries to extract cathode metals, such as lithium, cobalt, nickel, manganese, and aluminum

"The purity results analyzed by Kemetco Research demonstrates the potential of our RecycLiCoTM patented process and sets a new benchmark for the lithium-ion battery recycling industry," noted Larry Reaugh

American Manganese Inc (CVE:AMY) (OTC:AMYZF) highlighted the continued improvement of its battery recycling technology on Wednesday, saying its contractor Kemetco had recovered 99.98% nickel-cobalt hydroxide from the NCA cathode scrap material it received from a tier-one lithium-ion battery company. 

The firm noted that the figure was an even higher purity than the previously reported purity results (99.94%) during stages three and four of the pilot plant project, as announced in August this year.

The firm's technology recycles spent lithium-ion batteries to extract cathode metals, such as lithium, cobalt, nickel, manganese, and aluminum at battery-grade purity, with minimal processing steps.

The company has now completed testing of the pilot plant project and aims to begin engineering design and economic analysis of a 3-5 tonne per day commercial demonstration plant for 2020 following this completion of testing for tier-one companies.

"The purity results analyzed by Kemetco Research demonstrates the potential of our RecycLiCoTM patented process and sets a new benchmark for the lithium-ion battery recycling industry," noted Larry Reaugh, the president and CEO of American Manganese.

"We continue to pioneer a high-recovery, high-purity, and environmentally friendly cathode-to-cathode lithium-ion battery recycling solution that promotes a circular economy for the lithium-ion battery supply chain."

Today's purity result relates to the tier-one lithium-ion battery company referenced as 'company B'. The company plans to announce company A purity results as they are received and reviewed.

"We designed the process with the goal to produce recycled battery products that could be seamlessly integrated into the re-manufacturing of battery cathodes using minimal processing steps," added Norm Chow, the president of independent contractor Kemetco Research.
