American Manganese's test results show up to 99.72% purity for electric vehicle battery materials

The company has a patent-approved process for recovering metals from lithium-ion batteries

American Manganese Inc. - American Manganese achieves test results which show up to 99.72% purity for EV battery materials
The firm’s contractor Kemetco Research generated recycled nickel, cobalt, and manganese with purities of 98.91%, 99.72% and 99.27%.

American Manganese Inc (CVE:AMY) (OTCMKTS:AMYZF) revealed Thursday that it achieved positive recycling test results of up to 99.72% purity for materials like nickel, cobalt, and manganese generated from disassembled electric vehicle battery packs. 

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

The company’s contractor Kemetco Research tested cathode materials from disassembled electric vehicle battery packs supplied by a Critical Material Institute (CMI) team member.

In a statement, the company said Kemetco Research generated recycled products with purities of 98.91%, 99.72% and 99.27%.

The project is under the aegis of the Critical Materials Institute, an Energy Innovation Hub led by Ames Laboratory and supported by the US Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Advanced Manufacturing Office.

The CMI project is formally titled the "Lithium ion battery disassembly, remanufacturing, and lithium & cobalt recovery project".

It is focused on research, development and demonstration of novel methods that maximize value recovery from lithium-ion battery stacks, modules and cells by reuse, remanufacturing, and materials recovery.

American Manganese is a critical metals company focused on the recycling of spent lithium-ion batteries with its RecycLiCo patented process. The process enables high extraction of cathode metals, such as lithium, cobalt, nickel, manganese, and aluminum at battery-grade purity, with minimal processing steps.
