Following March 28, 2019 press release regarding its partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy on a multi-year project that focuses on creating a circular economy for lithium-ion batteries, American Manganese (TSX-V: AMY) (OTC US: AMYZF) (FSE: 2AM)  is pleased to receive the transfer of cathode and anode materials from successfully disassembled electric vehicle battery packs by Critical Materials Institute (CMI) Team Members. The material is to be treated with AMY’s RecycLiCoTM Patented Process. Findings will be reported to project Team Members.

 

“We’re pleased with the progression of project milestones and are honored to be working with world-renowned national labs and leading U.S. universities,” said Larry Reaugh, CEO of American Manganese. Commenting on the delivery of the disassembled battery pack materials to AMY’s pilot plant facility, Mr. Reaugh added that “the project is on time and on track”. American Manganese is focusing on the recovery of lithium, cobalt, manganese and nickel, all of which are experiencing rapidly rising demand as the transition to electric vehicles accelerates.

 

The CMI project, formally titled “Lithium Ion Battery Disassembly, Remanufacturing, and Lithium & Cobalt Recovery Project,” focuses 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.

 

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

AMY’s CMI partners include U.S. national labs:

 

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, ORNL is the largest multidisciplinary science and energy national laboratory in the DOE system.

 

Idaho National Lab (INL). Located in Idaho Falls, Idaho, the nation’s leading center for nuclear energy research and development performs work in energy systems, national security, science and environment.

 

Purdue University is also a project partner.
