The plant's technology allows the group to extract cathode metals, such as lithium, cobalt, nickel, manganese, and aluminum at battery grade purity, with minimal processing steps.

"Following the NCA cathode precursor purity results and previously achieved 99.93% purity from NMC cathode material, the company is preparing to enter the final stage (stage 5) of the RecycLiCo pilot plant project for the recovery of battery-grade lithium carbonate and the recycling of process reagents and water," the firm said today.

Larry Reaugh, the chief executive of American Manganese, said: "Kemetco’s expertise in development of hydrometallurgical processes has enabled them to meet their goals and the company’s expectations during all stages of the pilot plant project. We are excited to close the loop on our patented process as the final stage of the project approaches."

Kemetco provides scientific expertise in the fields of specialty analytical chemistry, chemical process and extractive metallurgy.
