Successfully Transitioning to Commercialization
We are a leader in developing domestic primary and secondary sources of critical lithium-ion battery metals used in electric vehicles, stationary storage systems and consumer electronics. ABTC’s focus on research and development has advanced a disruptive extraction technology of battery metals that can be deployed across the battery recycling and primary lithium extraction industries. Our advanced hydro process increases the recovery of critical minerals (Li, Ni, Mn, Co) from end-of-life batteries and enables the cost-effective recovery of lithium from domestic claystone resources. By leveraging our capabilities across both primary and secondary resources, ABTC is facilitating a transition to a circular lower-carbon energy economy, from transportation to energy storage.

- Enables the development of closed loop environment and circular battery economy.
- Pre-commercial scale battery recycling facility in Fernley, Nevada is designed to process 20,000 metric tonnes per year of feedstock to produce battery grade metals.
- Anticipate initial operations commencing in by year-end 2022.
Owns 10,340 Acres of Unpatented Lode Claims for Lithium Claystone
- ABTC owns 517 lithium-bearing claystone lode claims encompassing 10,340 acres near Tonopah, Nevada.
- Initial exploratory results of drilling program: lithium concentrations above the reference cutoff concentration of 300 ppmw observed in every drill hole, and with significantly higher peak concentrations observed in many sample holes.
- Based on Phase 1 program results, the company intends to further expand these exploration efforts to continue to advance this project, including a step-out drill program, Phase 2, to further characterize the deposit.
Commercial Partnerships With Industry-Leading Public and Private Entities for Both Primary and Secondary Resources
- Existing relationships for secondary resources include, BASF, C4V, the U.S. Advanced Battery Consortium, made up of General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Stellantis, and the U.S. Department of Energy.
- Existing relationships for primary resources include the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office, DuPont and the Critical Materials Institute.

When was the company founded?
The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on October 6, 2011 for the purpose of acquiring rights to mineral properties. In 2018 the Company brought on new leadership and shifted its objective to becoming a battery materials recycling and primary extraction. In 2019, Ryan Melsert joined the Company as the Chief Technology Officer and joined the Board of Directors as an executive member September 2020. Taking the helm as CEO in September 2021 and, in support of the company’s shift towards commercialization, Melsert has ushered in a full leadership transition, including the appointment of new independent board members.
Where is the company located?
Our headquarters is located at 100 Washington Street, Suite 100, Reno, NV. The company also has offices in Tonopah, NV and our Lithium-ion Battery Recycling Pilot Plant is under construction in Fernley, NV.

What are the company’s assets in terms of primary resources, and plans for these assets?
American Battery Technology Company (ABTC) has 367 Placer Claims in Railroad Valley, NV (7,340 acres), 212 Lode Claims in Tonopah Flats (4,240 acres), and 16 Claims in the Panamint Range in California (320 acres). There are another 305 Lode Claims we have under option to purchase that cover another 6,100 acres.
American Battery Technology Company is currently exploring the use of this primary resource extraction technology alongside our partners, as part of a $4.5M Grant for Critical Materials Innovations awarded by the US Department of Energy this year. This project will be utilizing lithium-rich claystone sedimentary resources as feedstock, which is unique to Western Nevada. ABTC’s first-of-kind technology for selective extraction of lithium from claystone resources will drastically reduce chemical reagent consumption and environmental impact.
What are the products of the company’s recycling process?
American Battery Technology Company’s recycling process will yield battery-grade Lithium, Nickel, Cobalt, Manganese.
How much lithium can the plant recycle in a given period of time?
Our operation will be scaled to process 20,000 metric tonnes of feedstock per year.
What does ‘pre-commercial’ plant mean – will this plant be revenue-producing or is it just a technology demonstration?
The plant is intended to both prove our recycling process at scale and to be revenue-producing. This initial ‘pilot’ plant – set to process 20,000 metric tonnes of feedstock per year – is a smaller size than our initial draft designs for potential, future full-size ‘commercial’ plants which have the potential to process 100,000 metric tonnes a year.
Does your process recycle the cathode material itself? What percentage does it yield, and at what purity?
End of life, full battery assemblies (including scrap materials) are to be received by ABTC and processed by our recycling facility. Each individual element is then extracted and purified to battery grade quality. These battery grade feedstocks are then sold directly back to the supply chain to manufacture new batteries.
ABTC’s proprietary advanced hydro technology uses automation in the de-manufacturing of batteries and targeted hydrometallurgical processing to recover the active battery metals. It avoids high-temperature processing, and is a streamlined and efficient process to yield a >90% recovery rate of battery cathode specification products.
