Ferro-alloys.com：American Manganese Corporation announced on Thursday that its dedicated cathode reactor is preparing to produce its first batch of cathode precursor materials for testing.
The company acquired a dedicated reactor for the production of cathode precursors, which is a valuable investment for lithium-ion battery manufacturing.
The reactor can produce modern cathode materials such as lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt oxide and lithium-nickel-cobalt-aluminum oxide, both of which are commonly used in electric vehicle (EV) batteries.
In order to meet the high quality standards of modern cathode materials and ensure that the test conditions are not polluted, American Manganese Corporation stated that it has prepared a dedicated and controlled test area for the reactor-first water testing will be carried out, and then purified lithium-nickel- Manganese-cobalt oxide and lithium-nickel-cobalt-aluminum oxide leaching solutions are produced in the patented leaching stage of the RecycLiCo pilot plant.
The company will report the results of the independent analytical tests conducted on the test batches, and will also prepare samples of the lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt oxide and lithium-nickel-cobalt-aluminum oxide cathode precursors produced for all Interested third-party organizations conduct independent performance verification.
The Canadian National Research Council Industrial Research Assistance Program provides support and funding for this technical feasibility project, which is officially called "Using Recycled Waste Batteries to Synthesize Cathode Material Precursors".
Larry Leif, CEO of American Manganese Industry, said in a statement: "Producing high-quality cathode precursor materials with the fewest steps can add value to our recycled products and demonstrate the viability of our closed-loop recycling method. Sex."
"The engineering and process parameter experiments performed in our pilot plant project provide a valuable tool that can be used in large commercial projects."
