EVENT DETAILS

We are pleased to host Aqua Metals (NASDAQ: AQMS) CEO Steve Cotton and Chief Engineering and Operations Officer Ben Taecker on December 1, 2021 at 2 pm EST. We will provide a technology primer on AquaRefining as part of our WTR Fireside Chat Series. The event is open to all investors.

Register for the event here.

Since 2015, Aqua Metals has developed breakthrough metal recycling technologies that utilize a clean, closed-loop process that can produce ultra-high purity metal. Using an innovative approach, AquaRefining, delivers raw materials back into the manufacturing supply chain while reducing emissions and toxic byproducts and creating a safer work environment. The patented AquaRefining modular systems have already demonstrated how they can reduce environmental impact and scale lead-acid battery recycling capacity.

Aqua Metals has been awarded 68 patents with 49 pending patents for their AquaRefining process, and we have filed a provisional patent for recovering high-value metals from recycled lithium-ion batteries.

Aqua Metals has invested in breakthrough metals recycling methodologies that are environmentally responsible, economically competitive, and will help retain critical strategic metals within the US while lowering reliance on unsafe and toxic mining operations. The method not only offers cost efficiency and higher metal yields, but it also offers a modular plant design requiring smaller real estate footprints enabling smooth, flexible, and streamlined installation. In addition, the AquaRefining process also yields metals like nickel, cobalt, and manganese in a highly pure form increasing revenue opportunities.

OUR INSIGHTS

The Opportunities

The markets for lead and lithium are growing rapidly, fueled by energy storage applications in automobiles, data centers, and renewables. Aqua Metals is well-positioned to take advantage of this growth through its proprietary AquaRefining technology. Prospective licensees will be looking for cost-effective solutions that improve the purity of their recycled metals while also cutting emissions as they face higher regulatory burdens and strive to meet aggressive ESG and Net Zero targets. Aqua Metals is poised to capitalize on this trend as its AquaRefining technology provides a fundamentally non-polluting and modular solution that improves the environmental impact of lead recycling, decreases regulatory burdens, and scales recycling production to meet the growing demand for high purity metals.

The Obstacles

The company’s novel AquaRefining technology, although proven on a commercial scale, has not yet been licensed to third-party commercial operations. It will be critical for Aqua Metals to secure revenue-generating equipment supply and licensing agreements and to successfully execute against those agreements by enabling its licensees to produce high purity AquaRefined lead at scale.
