American Manganese Inc revealed that it has now produced lithium sulfate (Li2SO4) at a purity of 99.99%, using its innovative, patented recycling technology, which upcycles spent lithium-ion batteries.
This bulk sample of lithium sulfate has now been sent to an international lithium producer, the critical metals group said.
"We are extremely pleased with the production of 99.99% pure lithium sulfate directly from the most valuable and least environmentally disruptive source of lithium available in the world - which in my opinion is the end-of-life battery," Larry Reaugh, the CEO of American Manganese, told investors in a statement.
"To produce green batteries, you need 'green' lithium, and we are thrilled to be engaged with companies that recognize the promise of RecycLiCo. We are confident that our product will align with the lithium-ion battery industry's needs, and which will unlock long-term environmental benefits," he added.
American Manganese is focused on recycling batteries from electric vehicles (EVs) and then selling the repurposed materials back to EV firms, in a closed-loop process.
Its RecycLiCo process first leached lithium-ion battery cathode scrap and black mass material with an extraction efficiency of over 99%. The resulting pregnant leach solution is then coprecipitated to produce cathode precursor material (nickel, cobalt, and manganese). The remaining solution subsequently undergoes separate extraction of high purity lithium sulfate while regenerating...
