IperionX Limited (NASDAQ:IPX, ASX: IPX) 2 mins read

IperionX Limited (NASDAQ: IPX, ASX: IPX), a leader in titanium metal production, is pleased to announce it has achieved the UL Environmental Claim Validation Procedure 2809 for its 100% recycled, low-carbon titanium metal powder.

UL Solutions (UL) is a global leader in sustainability standards, and IperionX’s low carbon titanium is the first commercial titanium metal powder for additive manufacturing to achieve UL validation for 100% recycled content.

UL recycled content validation is important as titanium metal powder for additive manufacturing can only be used a limited number of times before quality is impacted by contaminants or inferior powder morphology. Outof-specification titanium powder increases the probability of defects which jeopardize the structural integrity of additively manufactured components. Additionally, titanium metal produced by the standard “Kroll Process” is energy intensive, high cost, high carbon and is hindered by low levels of circularity. The current manufacturing process for titanium products generates large volumes of titanium waste that is downcycled to the ferrotitanium market or shipped to landfill.

In contrast, IperionX titanium is low-carbon with zero scope 1 and 2 emissions. IperionX can uniquely use 100% scrap titanium as feedstock to produce high performance, low-carbon recycled titanium metal via a circular supply chain that doesn’t rely upon mined resources.

IperionX recently completed a life cycle assessment (“LCA”) for its 100% recycled, low-carbon titanium metal. This LCA confirmed that IperionX’s titanium has the lowest quantified life cycle carbon footprint for commercial titanium powder, with a potential life cycle carbon footprint of just 7.8 kg of carbon dioxide equivalents (“CO2e”) per kg. This forecast carbon footprint is over 90% lower than competing titanium powders produced from plasma atomization, 80% lower than from titanium ingot produced from the Kroll process, more than 50% lower than aluminium ingot, and near equal to stainless steel ingot1. Further details and a copy of IperionX’s LCA can be accessed here.

Notably, IperionX recently won the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory Grand Challenge to produce high quality titanium metal powder from only titanium scrap feedstocks. IperionX successfully overcame a field of leading titanium companies to produce low-carbon 100% recycled titanium metal from titanium scrap or out-of specification titanium powder feedstocks. 

Major companies across the automotive, defense, bicycle, consumer electronics and green hydrogen sectors desire low carbon titanium from traceable recycled sources to meet their sustainability targets. Materials selection is an important way for manufacturers to reduce the carbon intensity of their products and yet meet demanding requirements for durability, quality and performance. IperionX offers these companies a unique and valuable solution to maximise recycled content, lower carbon footprints and still produce high performance titanium products.

Anastasios (Taso) Arima, co-founder and CEO of IperionX said:
“We are very pleased to achieve UL validation for IperionX’s 100% recycled titanium powder. This independent validation recognizes the sustainability performance of our titanium versus competing metal products. In combination with the results from our Life Cycle Assessment, UL validation indicates that IperionX has the lowest carbon, 100% recycled titanium metal on the market.”
