FERNLEY, NV / ACCESSWIRE / May 13, 2021 / American Battery Metals Corporation (OTCQB:ABML) (the “Company”), an American-owned lithium-ion battery recycling technology and advanced extraction company with extensive mineral resources in Nevada, which is in the process of changing its name to American Battery Technology Company (ABTC), is pleased to announce it has received approval from the City of Fernley Planning Commission for a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for a lithium battery recycling plant at last night’s monthly commission meeting. This recommendation is the first step, and the application will now go to the Fernley City Council for final consideration. The Planning Commission’s recommendation to approve the CUP signals continued progress in permitting and constructing ABTC’s lithium battery recycling pilot plant in Fernley, Nevada.
“The Fernley Planning Commission’s approval of our Conditional Use Permit is a critical path milestone in our work to build our first of kind lithium battery recycling pilot plant,” said ABTC Chief Operating Officer Menka Sethi. “The plant will bring well-paying jobs to the local community and provide an environmentally-friendly solution to increasing supply of battery metals in the United States.”
The City of Fernley’s CUP process ensures ABTC’s pilot plant will meet all requirements put in place through the City’s Comprehensive Master Plan to ensure “the public health, safety and general welfare by providing for special safeguards in the location and design of certain uses in certain zoning districts.”
“Our design build team lead by Miles Construction continues to prepare building permit applications as the Conditional Use Permit process for our pilot plant moves ahead. City of Fernley’s approval of the mass grading permit application we submitted will enable the Miles team to begin grading and sitework necessary to construct the pilot plant,” said ABTC Lead Onsite Project Manager Chuck Leber.
