COVID-19 Updates and Resources Pandemic Recovery Updates and Information

American Manganese Inc. announced that its independent contract lab, Kemetco Research, has begun testing cathode material from disassembled electric vehicle battery packs supplied by a Critical Materials Institute Team Member. The CMI project is based at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and 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.

“The U.S. Department of Energy initiatives on critical materials and creating a circular economy align with our company objectives and we are excited to continue the projects development,” said Larry Reaugh, President and CEO of American Manganese. The initiative is related to AMY’s partnership with CMI on a multi-year project that focuses on creating a circular economy for lithium-ion batteries, which the company had announced earlier.
