INCLINE VILLAGE, NV / ACCESSWIRE / March 3, 2020 / American Battery Metals Corporation (OTCQB:ABML) (the "Company"), an American-owned advanced extraction and battery recycling technology company with valuable mineral resources in Nevada, today discussed the increased focus on lithium-ion batteries for solutions such as powering electric vehicles and storing renewable energy.
While overall investor sentiment in 2019 was hesitant and bearish, institutional investors in 2020 now embrace the stark reality that there are not enough new domestic sources in development of the raw materials that will fuel the renewable energy revolution. Certain funds, like Bill Gates' Breakthrough Energy Ventures, are taking a forward-looking approach at both the mining required, and also the extraction processes of those key materials. The time between mining of materials and them being available to enter the supply is multiple years in the making.
"The market is starting to realize that while there's enough lithium to meet today's short-term demand, overall demand will quadruple in this decade," said American Battery Metals Corporation Chief Executive Officer, Doug Cole. "And the acute need for resources goes beyond simply developing new mining projects of critical materials like lithium, cobalt, and nickel. Advanced extraction techniques are also required to shorten the time from the mining of such materials to them being deployed into the supply chain- and the process must also be environmentally-friendly and sustainable."
American Battery Metals Corporation Head of Business Development and Government Affairs, Doug Nickle, says, "the renewable energy revolution necessitates a multifaceted, innovative approach for what he refers to as the "green in, green out" transition. It isn't really an environmentally sound energy transition if the mining and extraction of raw materials is bad for the environment and there isn't a sustainable plan to deal with the resulting e-waste created by lithium-ion battery systems."
Cole continued, "That's why American Battery Metals Corporation is unique- we are the only fully integrated advanced technology energy company covering the beginning and end of life- and everything in between- for battery metals raw materials. We provide solutions for the market's upstream and downstream needs through our leading-edge lithium-ion recycling process, proprietary extraction technology, and resource production divisions."
Each of American Battery Metals Corporations' strategic verticals addresses the burgeoning need for battery metals, and the company is rapidly establishing itself as a nimble market leader.
