Neometals to focus on Europe – Canadian lab and pilot plant closes

The Australian mining technology company Neometals which commenced development of lithitum-ion battery technology in 2016 has closed in its pilot plant Montreal and will focus on Europe. In a 50/50 joint venture with German SMS Group GmbH the company will establish a recycling facility in Hilchenbach, Germany with a pre-processing capacity of 20,000 tonnes. The plan is that the black mass will be processed in a hydrometallurgic process located in Vienna, Austria, operated by SMS.
