American Manganese Inc. Integrating Blockchain Technology to Source Lithium Ion Battery Supply

 

 

 

 

 

Larry W. Reaugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Manganese Inc. (TSX-V:  AMY) (OTC-US: AMYZF) (FSE:  2AM), is pleased to announce that the Company is working with Circulor Ltd. of London, England, to pilot blockchain technology in order to create a traceable and ethically sourced circular economy for electric vehicle battery metals, such as cobalt.

 

 

American Manganese Inc. CEO, Larry Reaugh says, “AMY and Circulor will be mapping the lifecycle of an EV battery and understanding the value flow through the production process and lifecycle. As well as providing a road map for AMY to source valuable lithium ion batteries.”

 

 

The blockchain technology will create traceability of EV battery metals from the mine through their first use and then as they are recycled.

 

 

Circulor Ltd. CEO, Doug Johnson-Poensgen, said “Blockchain technology has the potential to transform complex industrial supply chains both by assuring provenance and improving efficiency.  This joint project will create the first blockchain solution designed specifically for the EV circular economy.”

 

 

AMY and Circulor will engage other industrial partners involved in the EV battery lifecycle, including car manufacturers, during the pilot.
