New Military Contract for Can$325,000
PyroGenesis Announces Receipt of New Military Contract for Can$325,000 Bringing Total Orders Received to Over Can$1.8 Million Additional Contracts of Can$280,000 Expected Before Year End

http://www.pyrogenesis.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Receip…

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(GlobeNewswire– December 13, 2017) - PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR) (OTCQB: PYRNF), a high-tech corporation (the “Corporation” or “PyroGenesis”) that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes plasma waste-toenergy systems and plasma torch products, announces today that it has received a military contract for US$255,000 (Can$325,000).

The Corporation had previously announced in a press release dated July 17, 2017, that it had received payments totaling US$925,122 (Can$1.2MM) under a separate military contract worth US$978,312 (Can$1.25MM). This contract is now complete, and all payments have been received. Since then, the Corporation has received a number of small contracts, relating to its current military business lines, with a total value exceeding US$1.2MM (Can$1.8MM), including the contract announced today. Approximately Can$1.3MM of this amount is in current backlog. The Corporation expects to receive an additional US$218,000 (Can$280,000) of similar contracts before year end. These contracts are expected to be completed by Q1-2018.

“Our traditional business lines, other than non-additive manufacturing, continue to contribute significantly to the bottom line as can be seen from today’s announcement” said P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “PyroGenesis is entering 2018 with the expectation that the Corporation’s non-additive manufacturing business lines will generate enough revenues, on their own in 2018, to make PyroGenesis profitable overall. In fact, we expect to achieve these results from DROSRITE™ sales alone, and that is before any contributions from additional military sales, such as a third plasma based waste destruction system for a US Aircraft Carrier which is expected in 2018. All in all, 2017 has proven to be the pivotal year we expected it to be, and 2018 is shaping up to be even better.”

PyroGenesis client signs development deal with Apollon

2017-12-21 11:14 ET - News Release

Mr. Peter Pascali reports

PYROGENESIS ANNOUNCES THAT HPQ SILICON SIGNS DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT WITH SOLAR SILICON SPECIALIST APOLLON SOLAR

PyroGenesis Canada Inc.'s client, HPQ Silicon Resources Inc., has signed a development agreement with Apollon Solar, a solar-silicon specialist.

As previously disclosed, PyroGenesis has been engaged by HPQ to demonstrate, on a laboratory scale, that the Purevap process can produce high-purity silicon metal from quartz in a one-step process. Pursuant to a $8.3-million contract signed with HPQ in August, 2016, PyroGenesis is designing, fabricating, assembling, commissioning and testing a Purevap pilot system to produce silicon metal directly from quartz.

Peter Pascali, president and chief executive officer of PyroGenesis, provided an overview of today's announcement in a question-and-answer format.

Q: HPQ Silicon announced Monday its agreement with Apollon Solar, a solar-silicon specialist. What does this mean for PyroGenesis specifically and the project in general?

A: This move, to bring Apollon into the HPQ-PyroGenesis fold, is, in one word, ingenious. Not only does it demonstrate the validity and merit of the project, but the development agreement, in the company's opinion, not only increases the probability of success, but decreases the time frame in which success may be obtained.

Q: How is that?

A: To answer your question one must first understand who Apollon is and what they have achieved to date. First, Apollon is a private French company which, as one of the world's leaders in renewable energies, has developed processes to make high-purity silicon metal for photovoltaic conversion for use in high-performance solar cells.

Q: So, they are competitors to PyroGenesis?

A: Absolutely not! They complement PyroGenesis and that is the genius of this partnership.

Apollon is an expert in the manufacture of silicon wafers for use in solar panels. Apollon's unique knowledge and experience with silicon, silicon wafers and solar panels has enabled it to understand what works and what doesn't, and is has been extremely successful at this. In fact, Apollon was the first to manufacture entirely monocrystalline Czochralski ingots made with 100-per-cent solar-grade silicon metal refined metallurgically (SoG Si UMG). Which in layman's terms translates simply to the fact that it was one of the first to manufacture silicon wafers using an upgraded metallurgical-grade (UMG) silicon metal as feedstock. In addition to this achievement, Apollon has also managed to obtain conversion efficiencies of over 20 per cent in solar panels using these same wafers. In fact, Apollon holds a world-record conversion efficiency of 21.1 per cent with wafers made from UMG silicon metal used as feedstock.

In short, Apollon has managed to use UMG silicon metal as feedstock, manufacture silicon wafers, introduce them into solar panels and get world-record conversion rates.

Q: And ... ?

A: And PyroGenesis can supply Apollon with the required feedstock, and therein lies the beauty of this arrangement. Apollon has proven that UMG silicon metal can be used as feedstock to make silicon wafers for solar panels. PyroGenesis's results to date show that Purevap, at a bench-test scale, could convert quartz into the UMG silicon metal which can be used as feedstock to manufacture Apollon's wafers for solar panels.

Q: What else can you say about Apollon and the team?

A: It is important to realize, that in all this, Apollon is actually the first independent party to validate the innovation potential of the Purevap process. When reviewing the Purevap process, Apollon concluded that:

Purevap is a new metallurgical process (patent pending held by HPQ) for the production of solar-grade silicon metal, and that it is a unique process, based on the innovative plasma technology that is at the heart of PyroGenesis's expertise.
The successful commercial application of the Purevap process will lead to the production of solar-quality silicon at significantly lower costs compared with those of competing process technologies (examples include Siemens chemical process, Elkem Solar, Silicor Materials and others).

Without a doubt, future collaboration between HPQ, Apollon and PyroGenesis should increase the probability of success of the project. In this sense, Apollon brings two important elements to the team:

First, the ability to achieve a higher level of vertical integration (from the extraction of raw quartz (SiO2) by HPQ all the way to the production of solar cells);
Second, many years of innovative research and development work in the field of solar silicon and solar panels which complements the work already under way.

Q: From a practical perspective, how do you expect these benefits will be integrated into the project?

A: In the short term, PyroGenesis expects Apollon to provide immediate input into, and to help accelerate, the development phase of Gen-2 as well as to derisk the design and testing of the pilot phase of the project (Gen-3). In the longer term, Apollon's knowledge and expertise in solar panels will not only lend itself well to the integration of silicon produced by the Purevap technology into solar panels, but could eventually lead to HPQ becoming a vertically integrated producer of such solar panels.

Q: Conclusion?

A: Once again, PyroGenesis is impressed with the strategies and forward thinking of the HPQ team. They have done their research and positioned themselves to be a significant force within their space. PyroGenesis is happy to be engaged in this project.

PyroGenesis Submits Gen 2 PUREVAP™ Progress Report
PyroGenesis Submits Gen 2 PUREVAP™ Progress Report to HPQ Silicon Resources Inc.; Confirms Higher Yield and Rate.

http://www.pyrogenesis.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Submit…

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(GlobeNewswire– January 15, 2018) - PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR) (OTCQB: PYRNF), a high-tech company (the “Company” or “PyroGenesis”) that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch products, is pleased to announce today that it has submitted to its client, HPQ Silicon Resources Inc. (“HPQ”), a report entitled “Project Progress on GEN 2 PUREVAP”
This report gives a summary of the first five (5) tests on the Gen 2 PUREVAP tests. The main results of these initial tests are: • The Gen 2 PUREVAP can operate semi-continuously as designed and under vacuum. To our knowledge, this is the first time that this has ever been achieved. • The Gen 2 PUREVAP provides a higher production yield and rate (5.7 times more yield and 23 times more product). • The heat efficiency of the GEN2 is much better than GEN1. GEN2 achieves higher temperatures (i.e. more heat goes towards the process rather than being lost to various system components) and which allows for higher rate silicon production reactions and higher product purity.
“These initial Gen 2 results confirm the hypothesis we formulated when we initially designed this new reactor for higher yield and better performance. The results also provide confirmation of our design parameters for the upcoming pilot phase of the project.”, said Pierre Carabin, CTO of PyroGenesis. “The next step will be to continue increasing the amount of material produced with the goal of being able to extract liquid metal directly from the reactor in operation.”
PyroGenesis has been engaged by HPQ to demonstrate, on a laboratory scale, that the PUREVAP™ process can produce high purity silicon metal from quartz in a one step process. Pursuant to a Can$8.3 MM contract signed with HPQ in August 2016, PyroGenesis is designing, fabricating, assembling, commissioning and testing a PUREVAP™ pilot system to produce silicon metal directly from quartz. The aim of the Gen 2 PUREVAP™ metallurgical testing program is to confirm previous findings, and to allow for downstream product testing as final steps are being put in place to assemble the Pilot Plant.

PyroGenesis Provides Update on DROSRITE™
http://www.pyrogenesis.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/PyroGe…

PyroGenesis Provides Update on DROSRITE™ Business Line; Poised to be Significant Contributor in 2018.


MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(GlobeNewswire– February 1, 2018) - PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR) (OTCQB: PYRNF), a high-tech corporation (the “Corporation” or “PyroGenesis”) that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch products, provides herein a general update on its DROSRITE™ business line.

Mr. P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis, provides this update in the following Q&A format. The questions are for the most part derived from inquiries received from investors, analysts, and potential customers:

Q. For those that are new to the story, could you please describe to us what DROSRITE™ is and some of its many advantages?
A. Most certainly.
PyroGenesis' DROSRITE™ system is a salt-free, cost-effective, sustainable process for maximizing metal recovery from dross, a waste generated in the metallurgical industry. PyroGenesis' patented process avoids costly loss of metal while reducing a smelter's carbon footprint and energy consumption, thereby providing an impressive return on investment.
With metal manufacturers, such as aluminum, being subjected to increased pressure from regulatory authorities to eliminate landfilling of hazardous salt cakes from traditional recovery operations, combined with tight operating margins, PyroGenesis’ DROSRITE™ system is able to (i) increase metal recovery from waste, without producing any hazardous by-products, while at the same time (ii) reducing operating costs.
In short, we are (i) salt-free, so no hazardous by-products, (ii) we can process the dross cheaper than conventional methods, and (iii) we have demonstrated higher metal recovery rates. Who could ask for more?

Q. Given the above, the DROSRITE™ business line must be getting quite a bit of attention these days. What is happening?
A. It certainly is. We announced last November the sale of a second commercial DROSRITE™ furnace system to a North American automobile parts manufacturer which was quite significant for three reasons. First, it was the second commercial DROSRITE™ furnace System sold to date. Second, and more importantly it was the first re-order of a DROSRITE™ system from an existing client, and last but not least, we managed to secure a higher price for the second system which was essentially a carbon copy of the first (Can $1.02 Million vs. Can $600,00 for the first), which underscores what we have said all along, which is that PyroGenesis’ DROSRITE™ system provides significant value to endusers.
Since that time, we now have visibility on an additional 6-10 systems to be sold and delivered in 2018.

Q. When you say “visibility” what do you mean exactly?
A. By “visibility” I mean that we are over 90% confident that we will sign and deliver on those contracts in 2018.
Let me explain where the confidence comes from:
1 We are currently discussing the purchase of an additional two (2) systems with our existing client. 2 In the Middle East, we have demonstrated the system and are currently in the process of closing on the equivalent of three (3) systems. 3 Our demonstration system is currently in India on contract for paid-fordemonstrations, and if successful could result in 1-4 system orders. We are booking additional paid-for demonstrations in India as we speak.
Plus,
4 Our demonstration system is fully booked until September.
…and this is just coming out of the box in 2018 with no additional efforts. If you recall we announced late last year that we hired a fulltime business development Account Manager whose role is exclusively to secure DROSRITE™ system sales. He is aggressively targeting both primary aluminum smelters in Asia and the Middle East where the market is estimated to be in excess of 1 million tonnes of dross1, as well as tertiary casting producers worldwide. These two markets alone represent a potential market for DROSRITE™ systems numbering in the hundreds of units.

Q. What does this mean for PyroGenesis?
A. The answer to that question is what is newsworthy.
There is a high probability that PyroGenesis will be profitable in 2018 from DROSRITE™ system sales alone, and not just from a cash flow basis.

Q. Are you sure you want to make that claim, that PyroGenesis will be profitable in 2018? You got burnt once before doing that.
A. That’s a valid point, but in all fairness when I did go out on a limb, that one time, and predict profitability, it was when we were manufacturing powder production systems catering to the Additive Manufacturing Industry. That all changed when we subsequently decided to get out of that business and get into powder sales which, in retrospect, was the correct choice…although it took GE’s acquisition of Arcam, 1 year later, for the market to understand our strategy.
But your question is a good one and yes, I stand by the claim that PyroGenesis should be profitable in 2018. I am confident for a number of reasons: As you can see DROSRITE™ is laying down a firm base of orders. When you factor in the backlog of signed contracts which are expected to be accounted for as revenues in 2018 (approximately $4MM of the $7MM in backlog) then I think you can see how 2018 looks like it will be profitable. This is quite conservative as it does not account for any revenue contrition from either the US Military (even though it looks like an aircraft carrier will be ordered in 2018), or powder sales.

Q. Any challenges for the DROSRITE™ business line?
A. There are always challenges, it would be foolish to say it is ever clear sailing. Right now we could use a second demonstration system for sure. As we noted above, the current demonstration unit is booked to September in India/Asia. If we had a second system on hand we could start booking paidfor demonstrations in North America as well. We have had to postpone potential contracts due to this delay.
Rest assured we are in the process of addressing this need.

Q. Any closing comments?
A. The important take-a-way, and one that management only came to realize recently, is that the demand for PyroGenesis’ DROSRITE™ system is gaining traction faster than expected. The DROSRITE™ business line’s contribution to PyroGenesis is becoming more significant and as such derisks, to some extent, the rest of the Corporation’s activities.
2018 is shaping up to be a very exciting time for both DROSRITE™ and PyroGenesis.

PyroGenesis stellt ein Update auf DROSRITE™ Business Line zur Verfügung, das voraussichtlich 2018 einen bedeutenden Beitrag leisten wird.
MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(GlobeNewswire- 1. Februar 2018) - PyroGenesis Canada Inc.com) (TSX-V: PYR) (OTCQB: PYRNF), ein High-Tech-Unternehmen (die "Corporation" oder "PyroGenesis"), das Plasma-Abfallsysteme und Plasmabrennerprodukte entwirft, entwickelt, herstellt und vermarktet, stellt hierin ein allgemeines Update zu seinem Geschäftsbereich DROSRITE™ zur Verfügung. Herr P. Peter Pascali, Präsident und CEO von PyroGenesis, stellt dieses Update im folgenden Q&A-Format zur Verfügung.

Die Fragen leiten sich zum größten Teil aus Anfragen von Investoren, Analysten und potenziellen Kunden ab:

Q. Für diejenigen, die neu in der Geschichte sind, könnten Sie uns bitte beschreiben, was DROSRITE™ ist und welche Vorteile es bietet?
A. Ganz sicher. Das System DROSRITE™ von PyroGenesis ist ein salzfreies, kostengünstiges und nachhaltiges Verfahren zur Maximierung der Metallrückgewinnung aus Krätze, einem Abfall, der in der metallurgischen Industrie anfällt. Das patentierte Verfahren von PyroGenesis vermeidet kostspielige Metallverluste und reduziert gleichzeitig den CO2-Fußabdruck und den Energieverbrauch einer Schmelze und sorgt so für einen beeindruckenden Return on Investment. Da Metallproduzenten, wie z.B. Aluminium, einem erhöhten Druck der Regulierungsbehörden ausgesetzt sind, die Deponierung von gefährlichen Salzkuchen aus traditionellen Verwertungsverfahren zu eliminieren, verbunden mit engen Betriebsmargen, ist das System von PyroGenesis DROSRITE™ in der Lage, (i) die Metallrückgewinnung aus Abfällen zu erhöhen, ohne gefährliche Nebenprodukte zu produzieren, und gleichzeitig (ii) die Betriebskosten zu senken. Kurz gesagt, wir sind (i) salzfrei, also keine gefährlichen Nebenprodukte, (ii) wir können die Krätze billiger verarbeiten als herkömmliche Methoden, und (iii) wir haben höhere Metallrückgewinnungsraten nachgewiesen. Wer könnte mehr verlangen?
Q. Vor diesem Hintergrund muss der Geschäftsbereich DROSRITE™ in diesen Tagen einiges an Aufmerksamkeit auf sich ziehen. Was ist passiert?
A. Das ist es auf jeden Fall. Im November letzten Jahres haben wir den Verkauf einer zweiten kommerziellen Ofenanlage DROSRITE™ an einen nordamerikanischen Automobilzulieferer angekündigt, der aus drei Gründen von erheblicher Bedeutung war. Erstens war es die zweite kommerzielle DROSRITE™ Ofenanlage, die bis heute verkauft wurde. Zweitens, und was noch wichtiger ist, es war die erste Nachbestellung eines DROSRITE™ Systems von einem bestehenden Kunden, und last but not least ist es uns gelungen, einen höheren Preis für das zweite System zu erzielen, das im Wesentlichen eine Kopie des ersten Systems war (Can $1,02 Mio. vs. Can $600,00 für das erste), was das unterstreicht, was wir schon immer gesagt haben, nämlich, dass das DROSRITE™ System von PyroGenesis einen signifikanten Wert für den Endverbraucher darstellt. Seitdem haben wir nun Einblick in weitere 6-10 Systeme, die 2018 verkauft und ausgeliefert werden sollen.
Q. Wenn Sie "Sichtbarkeit" sagen, was meinen Sie damit genau?
A. Mit "Visibilität" meine ich, dass wir zu über 90% davon überzeugt sind, dass wir diese Verträge 2018 unterzeichnen und erfüllen werden. Lassen Sie mich erläutern, woher das Vertrauen kommt: 1 Wir diskutieren derzeit mit unserem bestehenden Kunden über den Kauf von zwei weiteren (2) Systemen. 2 Im Nahen Osten haben wir das System demonstriert und sind dabei, das Äquivalent von drei (3) Systemen abzuschließen. 3 Unser Demonstrationssystem befindet sich derzeit in Indien im Auftrag für bezahlte Demonstrationen und könnte bei Erfolg zu 1-4 Systemaufträgen führen. Wir buchen in diesem Moment zusätzliche kostenpflichtige Demonstrationen in Indien. Plus, 4 Unser Vorführsystem ist bis September ausgebucht. ...und das kommt erst 2018 ohne zusätzliche Anstrengungen aus dem Kasten. Wenn Sie sich erinnern, haben wir Ende letzten Jahres angekündigt, dass wir einen vollzeitbeschäftigten Account Manager für die Geschäftsentwicklung eingestellt haben, dessen Aufgabe ausschließlich darin besteht, den Verkauf des Systems DROSRITE™ zu sichern. Er zielt aggressiv sowohl auf Primäraluminiumhütten in Asien und im Nahen Osten, wo der Markt auf über 1 Million Tonnen Krätze1 geschätzt wird, als auch auf Produzenten von Tertiärguss weltweit. Allein diese beiden Märkte sind ein potenzieller Markt für DROSRITE™ Systeme mit Hunderten von Einheiten.
Q. Was bedeutet das für PyroGenesis?
A. Die Antwort auf diese Frage lautet: Was ist berichtenswert? Es besteht eine hohe Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass PyroGenesis im Jahr 2018 allein aus dem Systemverkauf von DROSRITE™ profitabel sein wird, und nicht nur aus dem Cashflow.
Q. Sind Sie sicher, dass Sie diese Behauptung aufstellen wollen, dass PyroGenesis 2018 profitabel sein wird? Du wurdest schon einmal verbrannt, bevor du das getan hast.
A. Das ist ein gültiger Punkt, aber in aller Fairness, als ich mich einmal auf ein Glied hinausbewegt habe und die Rentabilität vorhergesagt habe, war es, als wir Pulverproduktionsanlagen für die Additive Manufacturing Industry herstellten. Das änderte sich, als wir uns daraufhin entschieden, aus diesem Geschäft auszusteigen und in den Pulververkauf einzusteigen, was im Nachhinein die richtige Wahl war... obwohl es die Übernahme von Arcam durch GE ein Jahr später erforderte, damit der Markt unsere Strategie verstehen konnte. Aber Ihre Frage ist gut und ja, ich stehe zu der Behauptung, dass PyroGenesis 2018 profitabel sein sollte.
Ich bin aus mehreren Gründen zuversichtlich: Wie Sie sehen können, legt DROSRITE™ eine solide Auftragsbasis fest. Wenn Sie den Auftragsbestand an unterschriebenen Verträgen berücksichtigen, die voraussichtlich 2018 als Einnahmen verbucht werden (ca. $4MM des Auftragsbestands von $7MM), dann denke ich, dass Sie sehen können, wie 2018 so aussieht, als wäre es profitabel. Dieses ist ziemlich konservativ, da es nicht für irgendeine Einkommensverteilung entweder vom US-Militär (obwohl es aussieht, wie ein Flugzeugträger 2018 bestellt wird) oder von den Puderverkäufen erklärt.
Q. Gibt es Herausforderungen für den Geschäftsbereich DROSRITE™?
A. Es gibt immer Herausforderungen, es wäre töricht zu sagen, es sei immer klarer Segelsport. Im Moment können wir mit Sicherheit ein zweites Demonstrationssystem verwenden. Wie bereits erwähnt, ist die aktuelle Demonstrationsanlage bis September in Indien/Asien gebucht. Wenn wir ein zweites System zur Hand hätten, könnten wir damit beginnen, auch in Nordamerika bezahlte Demonstrationen zu buchen. Aufgrund dieser Verzögerung mussten wir potenzielle Aufträge verschieben. Seien Sie versichert, dass wir dabei sind, diesen Bedarf zu decken.
Q. Irgendwelche Schlussbemerkungen?
A. Der wichtige Weg, den das Management erst vor kurzem eingeschlagen hat, ist, dass die Nachfrage nach dem System DROSRITE™ von PyroGenesis schneller als erwartet an Fahrt gewinnt. Der Beitrag des Geschäftsbereichs DROSRITE™ zu PyroGenesis wird immer bedeutender und damit auch die übrigen Aktivitäten des Konzerns. 2018 wird eine sehr spannende Zeit für DROSRITE™ und PyroGenesis.

PYROGENESIS PROVIDES UPDATE ON DROSRITEA BUSINESS LINE; POISED TO BE SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTOR IN 2018

PyroGenesis Canada Inc. has provided a general update on its Drosrite business line.

P. Peter Pascali, president and chief executive officer of PyroGenesis, provides this update in the following question-and-answer format. The questions are for the most part derived from inquiries received from investors, analysts and potential customers.

Q. When you say "visibility" what do you mean exactly?

A. By visibility I mean that we are over 90 per cent confident that we will sign and deliver on those contracts in 2018.

Let me explain where the confidence comes from.

We are currently discussing the purchase of an additional two systems with our existing client.
In the Middle East, we have demonstrated the system and are currently in the process of closing on the equivalent of three systems.
Our demonstration system is currently in India on contract for paid-for-demonstrations, and if successful could result in one to four system orders. We are booking additional paid-for demonstrations in India as we speak.
Plus, our demonstration system is fully booked until September.

This is just coming out of the box in 2018 with no additional efforts. If you recall we announced late last year that we hired a full-time business development account manager whose role is exclusively to secure Drosrite system sales. He is aggressively targeting both primary aluminum smelters in Asia and the Middle East where the market is estimated to be in excess of one million tonnes of dross (1), as well as tertiary casting producers worldwide. These two markets alone represent a potential market for Drosrite systems numbering in the hundreds of units.

Q. What does this mean for PyroGenesis?

A. The answer to that question is what is newsworthy.

There is a high probability that PyroGenesis will be profitable in 2018 from Drosrite system sales alone, and not just from a cash flow basis.

Q. Are you sure you want to make that claim, that PyroGenesis will be profitable in 2018? You got burnt once before doing that.

A. That is a valid point, but in all fairness when I did go out on a limb, that one time, and predict profitability, it was when we were manufacturing powder production systems catering to the additive manufacturing industry. That all changed when we subsequently decided to get out of that business and get into powder sales which, in retrospect, was the correct choice -- although it took GE's acquisition of Arcam, one year later, for the market to understand our strategy.

But your question is a good one and yes, I stand by the claim that PyroGenesis should be profitable in 2018. I am confident for a number of reasons: As you can see Drosrite is laying down a firm base of orders. When you factor in the backlog of signed contracts which are expected to be accounted for as revenues in 2018 (approximately $4-million of the $7-million in backlog) then I think you can see how 2018 looks like it will be profitable. This is quite conservative as it does not account for any revenue contrition from either the U.S. Military (even though it looks like an aircraft carrier will be ordered in 2018), or powder sales.

Q. Any challenges for the Drosrite business line?

A. There are always challenges, it would be foolish to say it is ever clear sailing. Right now we could use a second demonstration system for sure. As we noted above, the current demonstration unit is booked to September in India/Asia. If we had a second system on hand we could start booking paid-for demonstrations in North America as well. We have had to postpone potential contracts due to this delay.

Rest assured we are in the process of addressing this need.

Q. Any closing comments?

A. The important take-a-way, and one that management only came to realize recently, is that the demand for PyroGenesis's Drosrite system is gaining traction faster than expected. The Drosrite business line's contribution to PyroGenesis is becoming more significant and as such derisks, to some extent, the rest of the corporation's activities.

Two thousand eighteen is shaping up to be a very exciting time for both Drosrite and PyroGenesis.
