HiTec ships EMD samples to battery makers worldwide

HITEC Energy said today it has shipped samples of high-quality EMD to the world's battery manufacturers from its demonstration plant in Perth, Western Australia, as a pre-cursor to the construction of a major facility at Port Hedland later this year.

Testing has proven the plant is able to produce EMD (electrolytic manganese dioxide) - the key ingredient in alkaline batteries – to the stringent specifications demanded by battery manufacturers
