Neometals Ltd (ASX: NMT) (“Neometals” or “the Company”), notes the press release
made today by Mercedes-Benz AG(“Mercedes-Benz”)(“Mercedes Release”).
Mercedes-Benz has advised that its wholly owned subsidiary LICULAR GmbH (“LICULAR”) plans to cooperate with Primobius GmbH (“Primobius”), the incorporated joint venture company owned 50:50 by Neometals and SMS group GmbH (“SMS”), as part of Mercedes-Benz’s push to develop a holistic and sustainable recycling approach for lithium-ion batteries.
Mercedes-Benz has today announced that Primobius is its preferred technology partner for the conceptual design and construction of a planned battery recycling and waste disposal recycling plant at Mercedes Benz’s Kuppenheim Operations in Southern Germany.
The proposed recycling plant at Kuppenheim marks Mercedes-Benz’s first entry into the field of battery recycling.
As set out in the Mercedes Release and based on preparatory work carried out by Primobius and LICULAR, Neometals expects the recycling plant will have a nominal capacity of 2,500 tonnes per annum (up to 10 tonnes per day) and will be built in
two stages with the first stage (mechanical dismantling) commencing production in 2023.
• Neometals notes the press release made today by Mercedes-Benz AG (“Mercedes-Benz”), regarding its global strategy for recycling automotive battery systems, which includes a recycling plant at its Kuppenheim operations in Southern Germany;
• Mercedes-Benz has announced that its subsidiary LICULAR GmbH (“LICULAR”) plans to cooperate with Neometals’ battery recycling JV, Primobius, as its technology partner, for the design and construction of the proposed recycling plant;
• Primobius is in advanced discussions with Mercedes-Benz regarding the design and construction of a 2,500 tpa lithium-ion battery recycling plant for LICULAR’s facilities; and
• Neometals looks forward to Primobius’ continuing collaboration with Mercedes-Benz and will keep the market informed of developments.
Neometals confirms that Primobius is finalising discussions with Mercedes-Benz regarding the planned cooperation set out in the Mercedes Release.
The formal agreements relating to the cooperation agreement are expected to be signed between Primobius and LICULAR, following negotiations under an earlier informal non-binding memorandum of understanding between the parties.
Neometals is pleased with how the discussions are progressing and notes that Mercedes-Benz has publicly made its intentions known in advance of the parties executing binding legal agreements.
Neometals looks forward to Primobius continuing its negotiations with Mercedes-Benz and providing further updates on the cooperation with them.
