American Manganese has adjusted its RecycLiCo process to upcycle old lithium-ion battery cathode recipes to the nickel-manganese-cobalt ratios used in newer generation cells.

To steer away from using expensive and oft controversial cobalt, electric vehicle and lithium-ion battery manufacturers have brewed up new recipes with higher percentages of more abundant nickel and manganese for their newer generation cells.

"Modern lithium-ion battery cathode chemistries have rapidly evolved to having less cobalt and more nickel or manganese materials, which does not reflect...
