American Manganese Inc (CVE:AMY) (OTCMKTS:AMYZF) updated Thursday on its partnership with the US Department of Energy (DOE), which aims to advance the recovery of lithium-ion battery materials from electric vehicles (EVs) and other products. 

In a statement, the company said that its contractor Kemetco Research had begun testing cathode materials from disassembled electric vehicle battery packs supplied by a Critical Material Institute (CMI) team member. 

It is all part of a US government project, which was announced in March this year, which is focused on creating a multi-year project that focuses on creating a circular economy for lithium-ion batteries.
