Larry W. Reaugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Manganese Inc. (TSXV:AMY; OTC US:AMYZF;FSE:2AM) (“American Manganese” or “AMY” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce the successful completion of stages 1 and 2 of the Company’s lithium-ion battery recycling pilot plant operations. Stages 1 and 2 include the pre-treatment of feedstock material and a leach of the cathode active material. The following links shows pictures of the pilot plant and the products of stage 1 and 2 operations. View – Pilot Plant – Clean Foils – Active Material.

“It is exciting to see our patent-approved process demonstrated on a pilot scale. The successful replication of the lab-scale operations in a larger continuous closed-circuit operation not only is the first step towards commercialization, but also provides key evidence that the company’s lithium-ion battery recycling technology is economically sound,” said Mr. Reaugh. “The selected NMC-622 cathode feedstock, valued at US$16.25/kg, is processed at an estimated reagent cost of US$1/kg.”

Kemetco will continue to process select samples of cathode material feedstock as they prepare for the remaining stages of the pilot plant operations referred to in the Company’s February 7, 2019 press release https://americanmanganeseinc.com/american-manganese-inc-commences-testing-of-lithium-ion-battery-materials-recycling-pilot-plant/
