Testing begins at American Manganese recycling plant

Mon, 02/18/2019 - 00:00 -- Hugh Finzel

American Manganese (AM) has reported reaching a “great milestone” in its work towards “a complete lithium-ion battery recycling process” by beginning operation of its five stage pilot plant operation in Canada.

AM’s processing partner Kemetco Research has started processing a select sample of cathode scrap material at AM’s lithium-ion recycling pilot plant in British Columbia.

The cathode scrap material is being processed through stages 1 and 2 of the pilot plant, which will see the sample undergo pre-treatment and then leaching.
