US green lead-acid battery recycling firm Aqua Metals has added to its manufacturing and financial team.
Alex Laleh has joined Aqua Metals as special projects manager and Thomas Akright joined the company as corporate controller.
Laleh will help to set up the company’s AquaRefining module production line at its California headquarters, where the firm says production is due to begin in December.
Akright will be responsible for building the company’s financial systems, internal controls, performance metrics and reporting capabilities.
More recently it received $10 million in a loan from Green Bank in conjunction with a 90% loan guarantee from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development.
