American Manganese Inc (CVE:AMY) (OTCMKTS:AMYZF), the critical metals group, has made more progress on its battery recycling aims.

The first and second stages of its pilot plant have now arrived at the Kemetco research facility in Richmond, Canada, the company revealed Monday in a regulatory release.

The Surrey, British Columbia-based company has a patent approved process for recovering metals from lithium-ion batteries such as cobalt, lithium, nickel, manganese, and aluminium.

Testing consultant firm Kemetco has now begun configuring and commissioning ahead of processing one tonne of preproduction cathode scrap material (500 kilograms of NMC and 500 kg of NCA), the firm said.

“As we begin our pilot plant testing, we are thrilled to see that the U.S. Department of Energy recognizes the importance of lithium-ion battery recycling technology,” said Larry Reaugh, the group’s CEO.

He added that American Manganese continued to have discussions with the U.S. Department of Energy for its recycling technology as well as the U.S. Department of Defense for its initial patented process of low-grade manganese ore recovery – one of the 23 critical minerals listed in the U.S. Executive Order.

The firm believes cathode scrap recycling represents a compelling near-term opportunity for its shareholders as well as for industry participants, including lithium-ion battery manufacturers.
