Sustainability and Environmentally Friendly Are Guiding Principles Behind the Company's Advanced Extraction and Battery Recycling Technology
INCLINE VILLAGE, NV / ACCESSWIRE / February 27, 2020 / American Battery Metals Corporation (OTCQB:ABML) (the "Company"), an American-owned advanced extraction and battery recycling technology company with great mineral resources in Nevada, today addressed critical mineral resource projects and renewable energy, as discussed in the recent Democrat presidential primary debate held in Nevada on February 19, 2020.
During the debate, moderator John Ralston brought up the issue with Democrat contender Senator Elizabeth Warren. Ralston stated, "The tension here in this state (Nevada) is between people who want renewable energy and people who want conservation on public lands. You've got to have lithium, you've got to have copper for renewable energy. How do you do that?"
Warren responded, "If we need to make exceptions because there are specific minerals that we've got to have access to, then we locate those and we do it not in a way that just is about the profits of giant industries, but in a way that is sustainable for the environment."
Doug Nickle, Head of Business Development and Government Affairs for American Battery Metals Corporation, commented, "The United States must take a forward-thinking, measured approach as the country seeks to break its reliance on foreign sources of critical minerals. Smart, sustainable mining practices are not mutually exclusive to wise conservation policies. At American Battery Metals Corporation, we are committed to environmentally friendly resource production and extraction of the critical metals that are necessary to fuel the energy transition to electric vehicles. Sustainability guides us in everything we do."
The United States is contending with the economic and national security implications that necessitate the development of new domestic sources of the materials required for renewable energy systems. Nickle, continued, "American Battery Metals Corporation is not only advancing its primary source projects, but is also taking immediate steps to address the e-waste challenges and opportunities presented by end of life lithium-ion batteries from consumer electronics and electric vehicles. Recycling scrap and end of life lithium-ion batteries is simply "re-mining" of a known source of lithium, cobalt, nickel, and manganese. It's profitable, sustainable, and provides a solution to a growing e-waste challenge. Every element we recycle and redeploy from a lithium-ion battery is one less unit that needs to be acquired through primary source mining."
As the electric vehicle and energy storage markets grow, American Battery Metals Corporations continues to execute on its fully integrated, closed-loop supply chain strategy.
