The mission’s objective is to focus on introducing Canadian companies to potential Korean partners for industrial R&D collaboration with potential for future commercialization, the company said, such as validation, adaptation, or joint development of Canadian technology in the Korean or other markets.
The battery centric event includes tailored business-to-business meetings with Korean companies designed to foster R&D collaboration discussions, as well as virtual speaking opportunities for companies to pitch industrial R&D collaboration ideas to South Korean companies, industry associations, researchers and public agencies.
The South Korean public and private sectors have been investing heavily in battery technologies to maintain their competitive and innovative status to stay ahead of international competitors, the company said. South Korea is already well recognized in the global supply chain of battery components and home to many global leaders in the secondary battery manufacturing sector, such as LG Chem, Samsung SDI, and SK Innovation.
American Manganese is a tech and urban mining firm focused on recovering key metals, such as nickel and cobalt, from scrap cathode material using its patented RecycLiCo process, then selling it back into the market.
