American Manganese Inc (CVE:AMY) (OTCQB:AMYZF) (FSE:2AM) and Kemetco Research Inc announced Wednesday the production of cathode precursor material directly from recycled lithium nickel cobalt aluminum oxide (NCA) cathode waste.
The NCA cathode chemistry is produced by some of the largest battery manufacturers and commonly used in modern electric vehicle (EV) batteries, American Manganese said.
The cathode precursor material, produced by the company’s pilot plant project and specialized cathode reactor, was analyzed with scanning electron microscopy to verify the spherical morphology requested by a tier-one battery manufacturer.

American Manganese said it will be producing a range of precursor samples to be evaluated in collaboration with the tier-one battery manufacturer.
“American Manganese is advancing its RecycLiCo process with the aim to produce the highest value final product, the cathode precursor, with the fewest number of steps,” said American Manganese CEO Larry Reaugh in a statement. “We believe our business strategy and patented technology provide the highest economic benefit and the most sustainable manner for recycling critical battery minerals from cathode waste.”
The company noted the government of Canada has recently developed a list of 31 critical minerals for the sustainable economic success of Canada, which include battery minerals like lithium, cobalt, manganese, nickel, and aluminum. Battery technology will be essential for the global economy and Canada is poised to become a global leader in mining, battery manufacturing, EV manufacturing, and battery recycling.
American Manganese said it believes its recycling patents and cathode precursor production know-how will be a valuable contribution to Canada’s thriving battery supply chain.
The National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program has provided support and funding to American Manganese for its technical feasibility project, formally known as Synthesis of Cathode Material Precursors from Recycled Battery Scrap.
