Euro Manganese Inc. has become a member of the Battey Alliance (GBA), an association that houses different organizations. These companies are leaders in the value chain of batteries, governments, academics, and NGOs.
They all have in common that they have mobilized to ensure that battery production is not only focused on developing green energy. They also seek to protect human rights while promoting environmental sustainability.
Euro Manganese, dedicated to high purity manganese, is the first to belong to the GBA group. This is because one of the Company’s goals is to engage in discussions about the transparency and traceability of battery materials. This is very beneficial, as GAB has been making progress in developing the Battery Passport.
More specifically, the Battery Passport will be a digital representation of an electric vehicle (EV) battery. Companies that meet strict quality and sustainability standards will be awarded a quality seal. This will give customers a guarantee of responsible manufacturing.
President and CEO of Euro Manganese, Dr. Matthew James, gave a few words about it. “We are very pleased to join the GBA to work alongside peers in assisting with the transition to a sustainable, low carbon economy. We share the GBA’s circularity, environmental protection, and sustainable development goals. The Battery Passport will be a valuable resource to measure EV battery quality and improve overall industry sustainability performance.”

He added, “Responsibly extracted and produced battery materials are the foundation of the battery value chain. Our Chvaletice Project in the Czech Republic is Europe’s only sizable manganese resource. It will produce fully-traceable high-purity manganese products for the EV industry in an environmentally responsible manner. As a unique waste-to-value recycling and remediation opportunity that involves reprocessing old tailings from a decommissioned mine, our project’s environmental credentials include a low carbon footprint and a net positive benefit from remediation of the historic tailings area. The Company has recently undertaken a Life Cycle Assessment to quantify the Chvaletice Project’s environmental impact, which we intend to announce soon.”
