Battery recycler American Battery Metals Corporation (ABMC) has been invited to join the advisory board of the Critical Materials Institute (CMI) as a representative of the lithium-ion battery recycling community.
The company will provide guidance on strategic planning and its research and development portfolio, and work with the institute to define and understand the technological challenges in the recycling industry.
The CMI is an Energy Innovation Hub of the US Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory.
ABMC, which is changing its name to American Battery Technology Company, was chosen to help CMI and its affiliates understand the challenges and opportunities of establishing a robust domestic US supply chain around lithium-ion battery recycling.
The company’s chief technical officer Ryan Melsert said: "There are significant opportunities for industry and CMI to work together to help ensure the responsible end-of-life management of these batteries and to help provide a low-cost domestic resource of the extracted critical materials.”
On 1 April, ABMC announced that Nick Copping had joined the Company's Advisory Board.
The company’s CEO Doug Cole said: "Nick's professional experience and enthusiasm is a renewable asset unto itself. He will be instrumental as we continue to grow and execute on our corporate and environmental, social, and governance initiatives."
