Environmentally Friendly Recycling Of Lithium Ion Batteries
President and CEO of American Manganese, Larry Reaugh talks about the company’s environmentally friendly recycling process for lithium ion batteries.
We can recycle lithium-ion batteries. American Manganese is a critical metals company that’s focused on our intellectual property which is patented in three countries. The problem we solve is for the EV cars to say hey, we’re environmentally conscious. We can take their end product, which is a lithium ion battery and get the lithium, then cobalt, the nickel and manganese and the aluminum out at 100% in a closed circuit that has nothing that goes into the environment. We’ve proven that the process works and now we’re going to do a pilot plant to show that it works on a continuous basis. After that we’re going to build a small commercial plant and you’d be surprised of the amount of revenue that’s kicked off by a two or three ton of day plant. What makes us unique is that we’re very forthcoming with our results, we get a hundred percent of the material. Anybody else talking about recycling metallurgically they don’t give any results so it’s a guess. The company is getting international recognition and you know it’s not going to sit in this area very long.
American Manganese Inc. (TSX.V: AMY) is a diversified exploration and development company focusing on minerals needed in the Battery and Steel manufacturing industry. Aggressive growth recently in its property portfolio has poised American Manganese Inc. to capitalize on the rising demand for commodities tied to Batteries and Steel.
American Manganese inc., has successfully completed proof of concept testing and filed for the US Provisional Patent Application and is presently studying potential downstream benefits to guide the Company’s next phase of work. The Company has successfully recycled lithium cobalt cathode material, and is working with Kemetco Research Inc to complete recycling bench tests on nickel, aluminum and manganese cathode chemistries and cobalt ores. Work to date suggests high recovery rates of materials at industry-standard purity levels, ready for reuse.
The company is led by President and CEO Larry Reaugh, who has 53 years’ experience in the mining industry, is credited with several producing mines and has raised more than $250 million for mining exploration and development.
- Electrolytic Manganese: China controls the supply 98.5% (3 billion lbs.) for the world.- Artillery Peak Manganese Property in Arizona – largest known manganese resource in Southwest USA
- IOCG: a newly-recognized deposit type with huge potential, evidenced by examples like Olympic Dam (reserves of 650 million tonnes)- Rocher Deboule Property in British Columbia
– Three Bulk Tonnage Target
- Niobium: rising demand in its use in steel alloys, niobium is also finding its way into widespread component manufacture in electronics- Brent & Lonnie Niobium Properties in B.C.
– Currently optioned to Rara Tera
