In a statement, the company said Meng has the extremely desirable skillset of being both a talented chemical engineer and a skilled bench chemist.

He recently served as a former staff chemical engineer at Tesla, where he was a lead subject expert in the battery cell materials and engineering R&D team and also played a key role in the design and construction of systems at the Gigafactory battery manufacturing facility. 

Prior to working for Tesla, he was an advanced chemical engineer at Southern Research, a renewable energy research institute located in Durham, North Carolina.

"I first met August back in 2013 when we were both working at Southern Research, and it was immediately apparent that our skillsets were very complementary. We worked together closely on several projects,” said Ryan Melsert, chief technology officer.

“Afterwards, once I joined Tesla and started hiring a team, August was the first person I called and was fortunately able to bring him on and he played a key role in every one of our efforts. I am extremely excited that, for the third time, we are now able to continue to work together in developing and bringing to market these first-of-kind systems throughout the lithium-ion battery and renewable energy industries. I have no doubts that August will be immediately making substantial contributions to both our battery recycling pilot plant efforts and our primary metal extraction development work."

Meng commented: "I am extremely excited to be joining the American Battery Metals Corporation team, the work they are doing is very well aligned with my interests and passions.”
