American Manganese Sends Sample from RecycLiCo Process to International Cathode Manufacturer
RecycLiCo™ Sample Outperformed Commercial Grade Cathode Precursor Purity
SURREY, May 27, 2021 - American Manganese Inc. (TSXV:AMY)(OTCQB:AMYZF)(FSE:2AM) ("AMY" or the "Company"), a pioneer in advanced lithium-ion battery cathode recycling, is pleased to report that the recycled product, produced from recycled NCA (lithium-nickel-cobalt-aluminum oxide) cathode waste has been shipped to an international cathode manufacturer for the purpose of validating whether the material can be integrated into their production.
Prior to the shipment of samples, American Manganese analyzed the purity levels of select elements using Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES), which determined that the recycled material outperformed the purity of commercial grade NCA cathode precursor material with respect to the undesirable elements shown in the comparison table below.
