IperionX has signed an agreement with Aperam Recycling to upcycle up to 12 tonnes of titanium scrap, primarily from the consumer electronics sector, into high-performance titanium products. This initiative aims to create a more sustainable and traceable US titanium supply chain, addressing the high-cost and traceability issues associated with traditional titanium sourcing.

Key details of the agreement:

Upcycling titanium scrap: IperionX will use its patented technologies to transform titanium scrap into powder, which will then be used to manufacture various titanium products including near-net shapes, plates, rods, and wires.

Environmental benefits: The agreement is designed to advance a circular economy by keeping titanium within a closed-loop system, thus reducing carbon emissions associated with long-distance supply chains and conventional titanium production.

New manufacturing campus: IperionX’s new campus in Virginia will serve as a hub for processing titanium scrap and producing advanced titanium products. This will help in reshoring titanium production to the US, potentially lowering costs and increasing sustainability.

Partners’ expertise: Aperam Recycling and its American entity, ELG Utica Alloys, are key players in the sourcing and processing of titanium and other metals, handling over a million tonnes of metal annually.

The partnership underscores IperionX’s commitment to sustainable practices and innovation in titanium manufacturing, positioning them as leaders in the shift towards a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective titanium industry.
