Chinese Patent Office Issues Notice of Allowance for American Manganese’s Lithium-ion Battery Recycling Technology






China Becomes the 5th Country in AMY’s Recycling Patent Portfolio


American Manganese Inc. (TSX-V: AMY) (OTCQB: AMYZF) (FSE: 2AM) a pioneer in advanced lithium-ion battery cathode recycling-upcycling, is pleased to report that the Chinese Patent Office has issued the Company a Notice of Allowance with respect to AMY’s National Phase Patent Application for its lithium-ion battery recycling technology, RecycLiCo. The Notice of Allowance is a formal notification indicating that the examination of the invention has been completed by the Chinese Patent Office and is allowed for issuance as a patent. The Company’s patent attorney will complete documentation and submit fees for formal issuance of the Chinese patent.


“China is the largest market for electric vehicles, with an adoption rate that leads the global markets today. They have a mature lithium-ion battery industry with great innovators and some of the world’s largest battery manufacturers. Therefore, we are proud to have our lithium-ion battery recycling process recognized as a novel invention by the Chinese Patent Office. The battery recycling industry needs advanced, practical, and efficient battery recycling technology, and securing patents for our novel process is a critical step for AMY to expand its global presence as innovative leaders,” said Larry Reaugh, President and CEO of American Manganese. “I’d also like to take this opportunity to wish all those celebrating a happy, healthy, and prosperous Year of the Tiger – Happy Chinese New Year!”


When issued formally, the Chinese patent will join AMY’s strong portfolio of issued patents in the United States (U.S. Patent No. 10246343 and U.S. Patent No. 10308523), South Korea (Patent No. 10-2246670), Japan (Patent No. 690606), and India (Patent No. 380826) as well as a Notice of Allowance from the Canadian Patent Office. The Company has also filed National Phase Patent Applications for Australia and the Europe Union.


Mr. Reaugh adds, “The team is currently on pace with the demonstration plant assembly, and we will continue to communicate further updates as they are received.”
