Visit to Reno, NV, celebrates ongoing partnership that promises to lead the US battery market.

Nanotech Energy chief operating officer Troy Zerbe has hailed the groundbreaking promise of an all-American sustainability partnership after visiting American Battery Technology Company’s (ABTC) lithium-ion battery recycling plant at the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center in Reno, NV.

Mr. Zerbe led a delegation of senior Nanotech Energy and BASF representatives. The visit, which took place in January 2024, further advanced the September 2023 closed loop agreement made between Nanotech EnergyBASFToda Advanced Materials Inc., and ABTC.

Mr. Zerbe said: “From the very beginning of our journey, we’ve been committed to partnering with US companies and bringing closed loop manufacturing and recycling to the US battery industry. Seeing ABTC’s recycling facilities has only reaffirmed our determination to deliver a market-leading solution that puts sustainability front and center.

“ABTC’s plant is truly outstanding. Its ability to extract essential metal content from end-of-life batteries means we can minimize our environmental impact at every turn.

“We’re grateful to ABTC’s leadership for their hospitality and welcome, and we’re certain big things will come from this relationship in the months and years ahead.”

Nanotech Energy has recently begun production of three different 18650 graphene-powered battery cells at its new manufacturing facility Chico 2. In 2025, a range of 21700 graphene-powered battery cells will also be available.
