Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling
ABTC has developed a universal lithium-ion battery recycling system that separates and recovers each individual elemental metal, including lithium, cobalt, nickel, and manganese, from end-of-life batteries from consumer electronics, stationary storage, and electric vehicles, as well as from defects and waste from battery manufacturing facilities.
Primary Metals Manufacturing
At our Research Development Center, located at the University of Nevada Reno’s Nevada Center for Applied Research (NCAR) and within the cleantech incubator Greentown Labs, our team of in-house scientists develop and evolve our extraction technologies.
Primary Resource Development
We have been designing and optimizing our internally-developed processing train for the manufacturing of battery cathode grade lithium hydroxide from our Nevada-based sedimentary claystone resources at our Tonopah Flats Lithium Exploration Project. Our novel method of enabling a selective leaching of lithium from these claystone sedimentary resources has allowed for significantly lower consumption of reagents, lower levels of contaminants in the generated leach liquor, and lower overall costs of production.
