American Manganese added that it has improved its workflow to process cathode scrap material from a metal recycler based in the United States. The improvements include steps to separate the aluminium foils and polymer separators while recovering valuable active material.

"The current research and development entails hundreds of bench scale tests to verify the underlying science needed to build a fully operating pilot plant,” CEO Larry W. Reaugh said in a statement. “Along the way, our work continues to open new doors for us."

Last month, the company said it had received 1 metric ton of scrap from the US-based metal recycler.
