Neometals (NMT) was the standout mover on the ASX today.

On 31 December the company noted that Primobius GmbH, the 50:50 joint venture between Neometals and Stelco has signed an agreement to commercialise its recycling technology into North America.

Neometals also has the advantage of the current market environment.
