High Purity Cathode Materials from Recycling Lithium Ion Electric Vehicle (EV) Batteries

American Manganese inc., has successfully completed proof of concept testing and filed for the US Provisional Patent Application and is presently studying potential downstream benefits to guide the Company’s next phase of work.  The Company has successfully recycled lithium cobalt cathode material, and is working with Kemetco Research Inc to complete recycling bench tests on nickel, aluminum and manganese cathode chemistries and cobalt ores.  Work to date suggests high recovery rates of materials at industry-standard purity levels, ready for reuse.


Strong Market Fundamentals

  • High value of cathode material in EV Batteries. Cobalt at $52,400/tonne. (Tesla Model S – Cathode Material $5,525/battery.
  • Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) projects electric vehicle sales to reach 41 million by 2040.
  • AMY recycling opportunity considered the most advanced of all known Recycling Technologies.

Worldwide Recycling Opportunities

  • Plant can be portable and located worldwide.
  • Projections of Lithium Ion Batteries to reach end of life will be 849,000 by 2025 according to a recycling international article dated Jan 29, 2016.
  • Currently a $3.00/pound tipping fee for receiving batteries.

Lithium Cobalt Critical to EV Lithium Ion Batteries

  • Lithium and Cobalt supply is shrinking while demand increases.
  • Cobalt to be in deficit supply by year-end.  Price has increased $140% in last year.
  • Cobalt is a high-density metal essential for battery power and increased distance between charges.

Provisional US Patents Registered & Applied

  • Company has applied for US provisional patent on recycling Cathode Material Lithium, Cobalt, Nickel, Manganese, and Aluminum.
  • Will immediately apply in other countries after applying for full patent in November.
  • Company holds patent in the US, China and South Africa for production of electrolytic manganese metals from low-grade manganese deposits in the US.
