Larry W. Reaugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Manganese Inc. (TSX.V: AMY) (Pink Sheets:AMYZF) (Frankfurt:2AM), is pleased to announce that the Company has engaged Kemetco Research Inc. to continue with the second phase of the company’s lithium-ion battery recycling research and commercialization program.
American Manganese has sourced cathode scraps from the United States and ground active materials from a lithium-ion battery recycler in Europe. (Click here for photos.). These materials will be processed for the next phase of the program.
Kemetco will assist the Company in the development of three new IP extensions as well as the engineering, design, construction, commissioning, installation and testing of the pilot plant. The total budget approved by the Company is $2,277,000 including contingencies. The entire project is expected to take 12-15 months.
According to President and CEO Larry Reaugh, “the company is in a good position to capitalize on the soaring value of the LIB battery metals on which we get 100% recycling recovery for Lithium Carbonate ($13,700/ tonne) and Cobalt ($81,000/tonne).”
