Besides EV components, AMY will try the recovery/recycling process with batteries from e-bikes and power tools

American Manganese (TSXV:AMY) announced that the company’s independent contract lab, Kemetco Research, has begun testing cathode material from disassembled electric vehicle battery packs supplied by the Critical Material Institute, an energy innovation hub led by the Ames Laboratory and supported by the US Department of Energy (DOE).

The work is part of AMY’s previously announced partnership with the DOE on a multi-year project that focuses on creating a circular economy for lithium-ion batteries.

Formally titled “Lithium-Ion Battery Disassembly, Remanufacturing, and Lithium & Cobalt Recovery Project,” the program focuses on research, development and demonstration of novel methods that maximize value recovery from lithium-ion battery stacks, modules and cells by reuse, remanufacturing, and materials recovery.
