American Manganese Inc (AMY) of Surrey, BC says that its specialized cathode precipitation reactor is being prepared to produce its first test batch of cathode precursor materials. The reactor is capable of producing the most modern cathode precursors such as, lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) and lithium cobalt aluminum oxide (NCA), which are used in electric vehicle applications.
Larry Reaugh, AMY’s CEO, said, “The production of high-quality cathode precursor material, in a minimal number of steps, lends added value to our recycled product and shows the viability of our closed loop recycling method. The engineering and process parameter experiments throughout our pilot plant project offer a valuable tool to incorporate into larger commercial projects.”
