Der Spezialist und ( inzwischen ? ) ein Geheimtipp in dieser Branche ?

Heute wieder eine dieser vielen ähnliche lautenden news mit immer neuen "Kunden" ( Zuletzt RollyRoyce ) :

MONTREAL, Quebec, 4. Dezember 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (PYR.V) (PYRNF), ein High-Tech-Unternehmen (die "Corporation" oder "PyroGenesis ") Entwirft, entwickelt, fertigt und vermarktet Plasma-Müll-zu-Energie-Systeme und Plasmabrenner-Produkte und gibt heute bekannt, dass es eine Geheimhaltungsvereinbarung (" NDA ") mit einem zweiten globalen Flugzeugtriebwerkhersteller unterzeichnet hat. Der Name des Kunden wurde zurückgehalten und wird aus Wettbewerbsgründen vertraulich behandelt.

"Wir sind sehr glücklich, in weniger als einem Monat eine NDA mit einem zweiten globalen Flugzeugmotorenhersteller unterzeichnet zu haben, und wir freuen uns darauf, eine substantiellere Beziehung mit ihnen zu entwickeln", sagte P. Peter Pascali, President und CEO von PyroGenesis. "Ich muss die Leser nochmals davor warnen, aus dieser Ankündigung voreilige Schlüsse zu ziehen. Obwohl es wieder einmal ein Interesse an unseren Fähigkeiten signalisiert, und ja, dieses Interesse kommt von einer sehr anspruchsvollen, anspruchsvollen und anspruchsvollen Partei, wir befinden uns immer noch in einem sehr frühen Stadium und es gibt keine Garantie, dass irgend etwas kommerziell ist aus diesen Bemühungen wird sich ein Wert ergeben. Wir sind der Ansicht, dass diese kürzlich abgeschlossenen NDAs in dem Sinne wesentlich sind, dass sie sowohl unsere Strategie bestätigen, ein Pulverhersteller für die additive Fertigungsindustrie zu werden, als auch unsere Prämisse, dass innerhalb der additiven Fertigungsindustrie eine erhebliche Nachfrage nach unseren Produkten besteht. "

PyroGenesis ist der Erfinder der Plasmazerstäubung - ein plasmabasierter Prozess, der kleine, sphärische Metallpulver für die Additive Manufacturing ("AM") - Industrie, insbesondere den 3D-Druck, herstellt und zum Goldstandard wurde.

Das Unternehmen gab vor kurzem den erfolgreichen Abschluss des Hochlaufs seines ersten (ersten) Plasmazerstäubungssystems bekannt, seit es 2015 angekündigt hat, dass es ein Lieferant von Pulvern für die AM-Industrie werden würde. Während des Hochlaufs erhielt das Unternehmen nicht nur mehrere Musterbestellungen, sondern entwickelte auch neues geistiges Eigentum, das die Herstellung sehr enger Partikelgrößenverteilungen bei höheren Produktionsraten mit wenig bis gar keinem Abfall ermöglicht. Das Unternehmen ist der Ansicht, dass dieser Durchbruch noch revolutionärer sein könnte als sein ursprüngliches Plasma-Atomisierungspatent.

Hier die news vom 11. Nov. 2017:

PyroGenesis signs NDA with Rolls-Royce

2017-11-06 10:23 ET - News Release

Ms. Rodayna Kafal reports

PYROGENESIS SIGNS NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT WITH ROLLS-ROYCE PLC FOR ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING POWDERS

PyroGenesis Canada Inc. has signed a non-disclosure agreement with Rolls-Royce PLC.

The purpose of the NDA is to encompass the evaluation and discussion of business opportunities, including proposal or offer generation, submission and evaluation, for the provision of providing powders to Rolls-Royce.

"We are very happy to be in discussions with Rolls-Royce and look forward, now that the NDA has been signed, to have more substantive discussions on the production of powder for Rolls-Royce," said Peter Pascali, president and chief executive officer of PyroGenesis. "I must caution readers however, not to draw any premature conclusions from this announcement. Though it does signal the interest in our product, and that the interest comes from a very discerning, demanding and sophisticated party, we are still at the very preliminary stages and there is no guarantee that anything, of any commercial value, will materialize from these efforts."

PyroGenesis is the inventor of plasma atomization, a plasma-based process that produces small, spherical, metal powders for the additive manufacturing industry, particularly 3-D printing, and for which it has become a gold standard.

The company recently announced the successful completion of the ramp-up of its first plasma atomization system since announcing, in 2016, that it would become a supplier of powders to the AM industry. During ramp-up, the company not only received several sample orders, but also developed new intellectual property which effectively allowed it to produce very narrow particle size distributions at higher production rates with little to no waste. The company feels that this breakthrough could be even more game changing than its original plasma atomization patent.

Separately, the company announced today that, further to a subsequent event reviewed in the Q3-2016 management discussion and analysis, wherein it was noted that a director had refused an option to buy two million shares at 18 cents per share, the board of directors, in accordance with its stock option plan, has approved the grant of an option to buy up to 2.4 million shares to this same director, also president and chief executive officer of the company, to purchase up to an aggregate of 2.4 million common shares of the company, at a price of 58 cents per share. The options will be exercisable for a period of five years, commencing on the date of the grant. The grant remains subject to regulatory and exchange approval.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 56.359.701 von married am 04.12.17 16:56:32Eines sollte man immer im Auge behalten: der Riese GE wird nicht mehr lange zusehen:

"Approximately one year ago, GE announced its acquisition of Arcam and, by default, AP&C. This acquisition, in our opinion, effectively introduced a supply chain risk in Additive Manufacturing ("AM"), despite AP&C's willingness to still sell powders into the marketplace. We have found that end-users, and metal 3D printer manufacturers alike, want to make their supply chain more robust. We believe that as a result of GE's acquisition of Arcam/AP&C, we are seeing a particular interest from GE's competitors."

Jedes Mal wenn wir beim Kurs nach oben durchmarschieren könnten
wird mit kleinsten ( Verkaufs-) Päckchen der Kurs unten gehalten.

Meine Meinung dazu dürfte bekannt sein: Für ein evtl. anstehendes Übernahmeangebot ( muss nicht unbedingt von GE kommen ) sollte ein Kurs nicht zu hoch stehen, sonst wird es zu teuer.

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 Canada expects profitability in 2018

2018-02-01 10:02 ET - Shareholders Letter

Mr. P. Peter Pascali reports

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. 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's Drosrite system is a salt-free, cost-effective, sustainable process for maximizing metal recovery from dross, a waste generated in the metallurgical industry. PyroGenesis's 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's Drosrite system is able to (i) increase metal recovery from waste, without producing any hazardous byproducts, while at the same time (ii) reducing operating costs.

In short, we are (i) salt-free, so no hazardous byproducts, (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 reorder 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 ($1.02-million versus $600,00 for the first), which underscores what we have said all along, which is that PyroGenesis's Drosrite system provides significant value to end-users.

Since that time, we now have visibility on an additional six to 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 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.

PyroGenesis Announces Closing of Private Placement
Jetzt gibt es erstmal noch frisches Geld, damit wird noch eine 2.DROSRITE Demonstrationsanlage gebaut werden. Und der Rest - ich hoffe ja noch auf eine weiter Powder-Maschine

http://www.pyrogenesis.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Closin…

MONTREAL, Quebec (February 9th, 2018) - PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR), (the "Corporation" or "PyroGenesis") a Corporation that designs, develops and manufactures plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch systems, is pleased to announce today that it has completed a private placement. The Corporation issued and sold an aggregate amount of 3,271,429 units of the Corporation (the "Units") at a price of $0.70 per Unit, for gross proceeds of $2,290.000.30 to the Corporation (the "Private Placement").
Each Unit consists of one common share of the Corporation (a "Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $1.25 until August 9th, 2019. Each Unit will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the date of closing.
In connection with the Private Placement, the Corporation will pay finder fees in the amount of $123,200 and issue 88,000 finder’s compensation warrants to the agents.
The proceeds from the Private Placement will be used by the Corporation for general corporate purposes. The Private Placement is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) as well as other customary closing conditions.
“We are happy to announce that we have decided to avail ourselves of this funding opportunity which provides us with necessary capital to move forward with a number of initiatives, and which will have an immediate impact on 2018 revenues,” said P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “As noted, the proceeds from the Private Placement will be used by the Corporation for general corporate purposes which will also include constructing a badly needed second DROSRITE™ demonstration system, which is expected to cost under $200,000 and be completed within 3 months. In our press release of February 1st,2018, we noted that the current demonstration unit is fully booked to September 2018 in India/Asia, and our lack of a second demonstration system is impeding our ability to close additional contracts sooner as there is demand for paid demonstrations in North America. Building and putting in service a second demonstration unit increases the probability that PyroGenesis will be profitable in 2018 from DROSRITE™ system sales alone, and not just from a cash flow basis.”

Certification For Production Of Metal Powders;Provides Updat
PyroGenesis Announces ISO 9001:2008 Certification for the Production of Metal Powders; Provides Update
08:35 EST Monday, February 26, 2018
MONTREAL, Feb. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V:PYR), (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis") a Company that designs, develops and manufactures plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch systems, is pleased to announce today that it has received certification for the production of metal powders under a quality management system which complies with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008. This certification is an amendment to the Company’s existing ISO certification, and pertains specifically to metal powder production, and was received under the auspices of a major independent risk and standards company; SAI Global.

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

Q. You announced today that you received the ISO Certification amendment for the production of metal powders. That was fast. What does this mean to the company exactly?

A. We did receive this certification relatively quickly, and I would partly attribute that to our history of meeting stringent military specifications/standards in our other major projects. We always have been ISO compliant and as such this amendment was relatively easy to obtain.

As we all know, having an ISO certification confirms that our management systems, manufacturing processes, and documentation procedures have met all the requirements for standardization, quality assurance, traceability, and batch to batch consistency. This gives prospective customers assurances that our house is in order. In addition, such efficient quality management systems will ultimately save time and money, as well as improve efficiencies.

We have found that many of our customers will only do business with vendors that are certified as ISO 9001 compliant, and many requests for quotes are from companies that make ISO 9001 certification a “must-have.” We are also in the process of applying to AS9100D for the aerospace industry, and ISO 13485 for the medical devices industry.

In short, having this certification gives potential customers the additional confidence to accept PyroGenesis as a qualified vendor.

Q. There has been a flurry of press releases announcing sample orders and significant NDAs being signed, then there was nothing. So, what happened? Has there been any other activity?

A. Rest assured, the level of activity, including both sample orders and NDAs has not abated, but in fact, has increased. The reason you haven’t heard anything regarding this activity is simply because we no longer consider additional sample orders and NDAs newsworthy. We decided that the first sample orders and NDAs were significant in that they were the first and as such we announced them as they occurred. We decided that subsequent orders and NDAs, have become part of the normal course of business and as such were not, as I said, newsworthy.

Q. The burning question is, with all this activity, where are the big orders?

A. I know it is hard to understand, as one might expect significant orders to be placed shortly after a sample order is requested, but PyroGenesis is actually ahead of the curve/schedule in this respect. Let me explain…

In order to appreciate this, one has to understand the ordering process which, although not carved in stone, it will, for the most part, follow this general pattern. Initial powder orders are placed by the customer who typically will perform some basic analytical tests to ensure the powder quality (such as sphericity, porosity, flowability, chemical purity, inclusions) is as we purport it to be, and meets their specifications. Once satisfied, they will then order larger quantities of powders for sintering testing of parts which will then be further analyzed for such characteristics as tensile strength, and density, amongst others. Once satisfied, another order for greater quantities is placed where the powder is then used to build a first batch of final parts using 3D printers. These parts are then further analyzed for part to part consistency. Once the homogenous nature of our powders is demonstrated, from batch to batch, the discussion with the customer turns to purchase orders or a strategic partnership.

The progression from a small “look-see” sample order to larger orders implies, at times, a change in strategic direction, or relationships, on the part of the customer, which, is normal but takes time. In other situations, the decision to make us a qualified supplier requires significant internal time and money, on the part of the customer. These are expected steps as the customer goes through the decision process, identifies/allocates the necessary funds, and ultimately allocates the time. Layering on top of this process is the fact that most of these customers already had a strategy in place before we came along.

All this to say, without going into all the details, we are at every one of these stages with one customer or another, which we never expected so early in the game. After all, we are less than 6 months from when ramp up was completed.

Q. You said that you are ahead of the curve/schedule. What else can you add?

A. This time last year, we did not have an operational powder production system, and we were relatively unknown in the industry despite having invented Plasma Atomization. As we are quite conservative by nature, internally, we worked under the assumption that it was going to be more difficult to open doors, so we allocated more time for market penetration.

We must admit that GE’s acquisition of Arcam, and by default AP&C, helped the market focus on powder supply which in turn helped us, but we felt it was still going to take some time. All this to say, it has been less difficult to open doors.

A year ago, we never expected to be so far along, or to have accomplished this much, or to be in such high-level discussions with major players so soon after ramping up. One year later, we have met the original schedule and had a system assembled, with a first test run, by March 31, 2017, ramp-up was completed in October 2017 and after being in operation for less than 4 months, we have managed to secure a large number of sample orders, signed significant NDAs, and are in discussion with several potential strategic partners. As if all this were not enough, during this time, we also managed to develop game-changing IP, and we are in the process of concluding an industrialization plan for a build-out which would be implemented on the signing of a significant take-or-pay contract.

Q. Industrialization plan? I thought you were already commercial?

A. Yes, we are. The difference between a commercial facility and an industrial plant is a bit subtle but it is important to understand and appreciate how far we have come and how we are proactively preparing for the future. A commercial facility demonstrates process control and repeatability, where there is continuous operation, and where R&D and special test runs for customers are also contemplated. It runs as needed. An industrial plant, on the other hand, is dedicated to continuous production, with no R&D, 24/7. A commercial facility may still be run by highly skilled technicians whereas an industrial plant can be run by less skilled operators.

It is currently estimated that our industrialization plan will incorporate cookie-cutter units, each with 3-5 powder production towers designed to build out to any contracted demand.

Our approach to the market is very conservative, which is why we probably have lasted so long. Our strategy is not to build excess capacity and wait for customers. This approach may be risky for a number of reasons. First, it is costly. Second, we do not want to find ourselves across the table negotiating price with a potential customer who knows we have excess capacity on our hands (which is hard to hide when a customer asks how fast you can deliver).

Our approach is built on the recent disruption in the supply chain caused by GE’s acquisition of Arcam and by default AP&C, and the overall serious lack of quality independent powder producers. Recent discussions with potential customers confirm our supposition that these customers find our products compelling enough that they will allow us to grow into their need or, in cases where the need is developing as with new printer companies, grow in-step with their needs.

Q. What type of feedback are you getting from your sample orders? Have you been rejected by anyone? Can you give us an example of feedback?

A. First and foremost, we have not received any negative comments on our powders and not one has been rejected. If one considers the number of sample orders delivered this is quite impressive. Furthermore, all the sample orders were paid for except for one, which was given for free.

As an example of feedback, we received results from one of the largest OEM Metal Printer manufacturers who had performed the usual characterization tests on our Ti-6Al-4V Grade 23 powders (composition, flowability, density, moisture). The results exceeded expectations and were exceptional especially when compared to powders from other suppliers. PyroGenesis’ powders met or exceeded all the specifications required for the several series of tests. Now, additional powders will be procured to make actual test parts to test tensile and yield strengths. As mentioned, the qualification process includes several stages of analysis and we are in the final stage. There is no reason to think that we will not succeed and become a primarily supplier to one of the OEMs sometime very soon.

This is just one example of the many customers which are at various stages of evaluation and discussions.

Q. Let’s turn to operations for a moment. Are you still running two shifts? Are you stockpiling? What are your plans for additional systems?

A. Currently we are operating with two shifts, and over the next few weeks will be adding overtime. We may add a third shift in the near future. We do not stockpile per se, but we do keep a small inventory in anticipation of demand.

Although I will not speak to specific demand I can share with you the fact that we are in continuous discussions for sample orders, repeat orders, long term orders, contract R&D, and strategic partnerships. As such, we have ordered the long lead items for two powder production systems, both of which should be fully operational by the end of July 2018. These new powder production units will incorporate some of the cutting-edge IP that we recently developed. We expect these units will cost significantly less to manufacture, generate higher production rates, and provide us with greater control over particle size distributions.

Q. Let’s get back to strategic partnerships. You have alluded to this before. What are we talking about? How close are you to a conclusion?

A. For obvious reasons, I cannot disclose to whom we are speaking or the specifics of the discussions, however, I can confirm that we are speaking to more than one player and that a successfully concluded agreement with any of them will be significant not just for PyroGenesis and our shareholders, but arguably for the marketplace as a whole. Pyogenesis has had quite a bit of success with strategic partnerships; one just need only to look at our relationship with the US military for proof.

Management is of the view that a well-structured partnership can not only accelerate PyroGenesis’ growth but also open the doors to new revenue streams which otherwise would be long in coming.

As I said, we are involved in more than one discussion, with the longest one taking place for several months, and the most recent one over the past several weeks. I must caution readers that although everything looks very positive, these discussions could all go nowhere very quickly, although I highly doubt it given the level and type of discussions and the caliber of players.

Q. This might be a good point to ask how you may answer those who say you sometimes announce things too early, like the spin-off of PyroGenesis Additive or that you do not do things fast enough like hiring a COO, or CFO, or more business development people, or or or….?

A. This is a very good question and as I have said before a lot has transpired in the world of Additive Manufacturing since we announced our desire to spin off PyroGenesis Additive. It would have been highly questionable to have continued along a path, ignoring all the changes, just because we announced we would. We are beholden to our shareholders and constantly review our decisions based on new information, all with the goal of maximizing shareholder value. I would challenge any investor to point to a time between when we announced our intention to spin off PyroGenesis Additive, and now, that would have maximized shareholder value more than if we did the spin off today. Today we have created more value in PyroGenesis Additive, and at the same time the non-additive part of PyroGenesis is tending towards profitability as noted in our last press release dated February 1st, 2018. Even with 20/20 hindsight our strategy to postpone the spin off was correct. Rest assured we are still committed to this spin off.

As far as those that say we are not moving fast enough in certain directions, particularly in hiring, I would say keep your comments coming. I read them all, and I would say you are all, for the most part, correct. In the world of limitless cash, we could do a lot of things faster. In the real world, we are challenged to make choices. Where is this next $1 best spent? At what time do we sacrifice sales for technology, or technology for administration or any combination of the aforementioned? That is the challenges that face us every day. Would hiring a CFO have helped us with our technology improvements or sales with DROSRITE™? No. Would hiring a CFO have helped us during our ramp up and sample sales with PyroGenesis Additive? No. That is not to say that having additional help in that department wouldn’t have helped. I am just saying the help would not have been worth the sacrifices which would have to have been made in other areas. These are the tough decisions we face every day, and you can rest assured the management of your Company takes these decisions very seriously. That is not to say we get it right each and every time but, given where we are, I would say we are doing very well.

Q. Conclusion?

A. We are entering into a very exciting period for PyroGenesis Additive. If the next year is anything like the past one has been, and I expect it to be even better, then hold onto your horses. Things are lining up well as our market penetration strategy is starting to bear fruit, and faster than we expected. Again, we fully expect that there will be disappointments along the way, but as I have said in the past, we will meet them as we have all previous challenges, and that is with a perseverance and tenacity that is unique to PyroGenesis.

Frage: Lassen Sie uns zu strategischen Partnerschaften zurückkehren. Sie haben schon einmal darauf hingewiesen. Worüber reden wir? Wie nahe bist du einem Schluss?

A. Aus offensichtlichen Gründen kann ich nicht offenlegen, mit wem wir sprechen oder wie spezifisch die Diskussionen sind. Ich kann jedoch bestätigen, dass wir mit mehr als einem Spieler sprechen und dass eine erfolgreich abgeschlossene Vereinbarung mit einem von ihnen nicht nur von Bedeutung sein wird für PyroGenesis und unsere Aktionäre, aber wohl für den gesamten Markt. Pyogenesis hat mit strategischen Partnerschaften ziemlich viel Erfolg gehabt; Man muss nur unsere Beziehung zum US-Militär betrachten, um Beweise zu finden.

PyroGenesis Provides Update on its PUREVAP™ Project with HPQ Silicon Resources Inc.
PyroGenesis Provides Update on its PUREVAP™ Project with HPQ Silicon Resources Inc.

http://www.pyrogenesis.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Update…

MONTREAL, Quebec (GlobeNewswire – March 8th, 2018) - PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR), (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis") a Company that designs, develops and manufactures plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch systems, is pleased to provide herein a general update on its PUREVAP™ Project with HPQ Silicon Resources Inc (“HPQ”).

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

Q. For those that are new to the story, could you please describe to us what the PUREVAP™ technology is and some of its many advantages?
A. Most certainly. HPQ is the owner of quartz properties. Quartz can be processed, through multiple steps, into a high purity silicon metal which is an important element in solar panels. It helps convert solar energy into useful electricity. Many in the solar panel industry consider the cost of converting Quartz into solar grade silicon metal to be a limiting factor in the growth of the solar panel industry.
PyroGenesis was first engaged by HPQ to demonstrate, on a laboratory scale, that its one-step proprietary PUREVAPTM process could produce high purity silicon metal from quartz in just one step.
PyroGenesis was taken by the prospect of using a plasma-based process to convert Quartz into solar grade silicon metal as there seemed to be a strong market need for such. A number of years ago, a company by the name of Timminco saw its stock soar from 20 cents to over $30 and its market cap increased to over 3 billion of dollars when it was perceived that they had found a way to reduce the number of steps, not eliminate all steps, just reduce the number of steps, in the processing of quartz into solar grade silicon metal1. That is not to say that this is what we expect here, but it did give us confidence that there was a significant need for a cheaper way to make solar grade silicon metal and, on paper, at the time, it looked like plasma might be able to address issues where other processes failed ( Figure 1).

1 The Globe and Mail: “Timminco: How Eric Sprott got solar burn”, published Aug 31, 2012


To date, we are very pleased with the results and, in fact, believe we have already demonstrated better results than the Timminco process had in its day.

Q. That is quite impressive and quick. Tell me…the project has been described in several phases; Gen 1, Gen 2, and now the Pilot Plant. Could you please explain what the targets were in each generation, what was accomplished, and what the targets are now?
A. Sure.
It goes without saying that, from a 30,000 ft level, it all has to do with purity and production rates. GEN1’s goal was simply to prove the concept on a bench test scale and, if possible, identify parameters that could affect purity and production rates. GEN-2’s goal was to test the observations in GEN-1 at scale more representative of the pilot unit and was also geared towards optimizing the final pilot scale design.
GEN-1 was limited in that it was a batch system. This means that the feedstock, quartz, was fed into the system in batches…i.e. there was not a continuous feed of material. This limited the running time to batch runs of only a few hours. GEN-1’s primary goal of proving out that the PUREVAP™ technology could convert quartz into pure silicon metal in only one step was successful. From tests with GEN-1, we were also able to estimate the impurity removal efficiency of the PUREVAP™ process which turned out to be higher than expected from bench tests.
Some of the most interesting developments with GEN-1 were the observations relating to production
yield. GEN-1’s thermal efficiency was very low due to certain characteristics inherent with GEN-1 (excessive cooling rate and long ramp ups for example). To make a long story short, PyroGenesis was able to conclude, by the end of GEN-1, that operating under a batch process with low thermal efficiency, lowered production yield (i.e. % conversion of silicon in quartz to elemental silicon) and in turn production rate. In other words, we concluded that by increasing production yield, we would not only generate larger amounts of output (higher production rate), but that output, by all accounts, should be at higher yields of wanted end-product. This was later proven out in GEN-2 and remains an important parameter in the final purity of silicon metal. Another significant observation with GEN-1 spoke to the efficiency of the PUREVAPTM process. During testing with the GEN-1, we used lower quality quartz to see how the system would handle impurities. Low and behold, we managed to produce high purity silicon metal. Not the high purity metal demanded by solar panels, but high enough to be suitable for other commercial applications. We found this to be extremely significant as it opened up other markets for the PUREVAPTM process which were not identified at the outset. Remember, the original goal was to convert high purity quartz to high purity silicon metal for solar panels…now we can add to that equation the conversion of low purity quartz to high purity silicon for other applications (such as casting and chemical industries).
In short, GEN-1 accomplished the following: • Proof of concept: converting quartz to high purity silicon using PUREVAPTM, • Production rates and yields move in step, • Use of lower quality quartz for the production of high purity silicon: PUREVAP™ has a very high impurity removal efficiency which enables the use of lower quality quartz for silicon production.

GEN-2 was designed and fabricated to operate semi-continuously in order to test the observations made in GEN-1. We also wanted to operate at higher temperatures and confirm the impact of thermal efficiency on production yield and ergo, purity (i.e. the more heat that goes towards the process rather than being lost to various system components should allow for a higher rate of silicon production and as such higher product purity).
GEN-2 was also made at a scale more representative of the operating mode of the pilot unit and as such was also geared towards optimizing the final pilot scale design.
GEN-2 demonstrated the following: • PUREVAP™ can operate semi-continuously, • A higher thermal efficiency was obtained resulting in a higher operating temperature, • A higher production yield was achieved.

The challenges going forward relate to typical scale up issues, as well continually improving the process and focusing on removing individual impurities towards achieving solar grade silicon metal. Given the accomplishments to date and that, in many aspects, the GEN-2 is similar to the pilot plant, we are confident that at the end of the day we will have a commercial success. However, we don’t know what
we don’t know, right? That is what development is all about. I am confident that any challenges will be met head on, as they have in the past, by arguably the best team around to do that. Together with Apollon Solar, which have signed an agreement with HPQ to provide valuable input into the process, we are well positioned to successfully complete the design and testing of the next phase.

Q. Interesting. In your press release dated January 15th, 2018, you announced that your GEN-2 process is now operating “semi-continuously under vacuum”. What does that mean exactly, “under vacuum”? And what difference does it make?
A. This is a huge development. Essentially it means that rather than operate at normal pressure, the PUREVAP™ process can operate at very low pressure when converting quartz into high grade silicon metal. Lowering the operating pressure favors something called volatilization of impurities. Without getting too technical, this volatilization of impurities essentially improves the purity of the end product by forcing the impurities out of the reacting system thus leaving behind a purer silicon metal. It effectively enhances the removal efficiency of impurities. Bottom line: the main advantage of being under vacuum is the fact that impurities don’t accumulate in the silicon phase. This is a huge development on our road to success. To our knowledge, there is no other process that produces silicon metal directly from quartz under vacuum. Don’t get me wrong, vacuum refining does exist in the market to remove certain impurities from silicon that has already been produced (i.e., silicon is produced, remelted, then it goes under vacuum), but it is a total different animal altogether. It requires a posttreatment process which is limited and thereby adds additional costs. As far as we know, we are the only players to operate under vacuum in the production of silicon metal. As I said, this is huge, and the impact of which has not really been fully understood by the market.

Q. How transferable are the results obtained from GEN-2 to the pilot plant?
A. We believe they are very transferable. In fact, we expect the results to be even better at larger scale. By increasing the scale, we are increasing the production rate. Theoretically, this will give us a better conversion yield according to our results so far.
As you can imagine, we are already extremely excited about the results we have had with GEN-2, and we can only imagine what the results will be with the pilot plant. As mentioned, at a larger scale, the production rate is automatically higher which, we have proven with GEN-2, should lead to a higher conversion yield and better purity.

Q. Tapping tapping tapping… Everyone is asking for tapping. Why hasn’t it occurred and when will it occur?
A. It is an interesting question because it reflects a belief that there is a connection between tapping and success to date. The accomplishments noted above with GEN-1 and GEN-2, in my opinion, are more reflective of success than tapping.
Tapping will come naturally. When liquid accumulates enough, tapping can occur. The purity of silicon in liquid form is expected to be very high. Tapping was not part of the GEN-2 objectives and, as such,
we never operated with the goal of creating the conditions to tap. At this point, we spent our time and money on testing that had a direct impact on production, purity, and design. Tapping, as nice as it would be to see, and possibly a nice press release, has more value to our knowledge and progress in the pilot phase. As such, rest assured, that at the pilot plant phase tapping will be demonstrated as production and conversion yields should be higher.

Q. An often-asked question is, how comfortable are you with the patent application?
A. The short answer is: very comfortable. PyroGenesis has never failed in obtaining a patent when we have applied for one, and we have extensive experience over many years doing so.
It is understandable that a person unfamiliar with our history, patents in general and the patent process specifically, may get hung up or side tracked by this question.
I answered this type of question once before, in another forum, by describing the players and the process. It basically works something like this: when one applies for a patent it behooves one to try and describe in as much detail what the patent can uniquely do and, at the same time, get the best coverage surrounding the patent claims. That is the role of one who applies for a patent. The examiners role, on the other hand, is to challenge the patent and/or limit the claims. That is their role. Of note is that the examiner cannot be expected to be an expert in every field so oftentimes, the challenges are more of a “please explain why…” type of a challenge. We have faced on numerous occasions extremely negative comments from the examiner at the PCT level. This is quite common, and it has never prevented us from obtaining patents at the end of the day.
As I said, we feel very comfortable with the patent application and, without getting into specifics, we have a very well thought out and articulated patent and IP strategy regarding the PUREVAP™ technology. Just remember, this is a costly and time-consuming process and we don’t have either to waste. Rest assured, if we did not think we would succeed we wouldn’t waste our time or money. It’s not more complicated than that.

Q. Some investors/shareholders are skeptical about the whole process. Do you have any comments?
A. …and so they should be. Seriously, we are talking about a process that potentially could be game changing beyond description. Who wouldn’t be skeptical? You would have to be a fool not to be. Adding to this is the fact that the results to date are beyond our expectations which, in a weird way, fuels the skepticism, no? It’s almost too good to be true…makes one think that a little bit of bad news might put people at ease. Just joking, but you get my drift.
On the other hand, how many chances do you get to invest into such potential, at 10 cents a share and market cap of under CAD$20 million? I am talking about HPQ here. Anyways, just food for thought.

Q. PyroGenesis is a shareholder of HPQ, isn’t it?
A. Yes, we are. We currently hold over 5 million common shares and over 3 million warrants which are reflected on our balance sheet.
Q. Would you invest more into HPQ?
A. Yes, we would consider it if it made sense, but let me be very very clear on this point. PyroGenesis is investing each and every day into HPQ. I have said this before and I will say it again, PyroGenesis does not have time or money to waste on projects that do not have future potential. Each and every day PyroGenesis has to decide where to allocate its resources, the most important of which is its time. Plasma expertise, such as ours, does not grow on trees and we must be very discerning as to where we dedicate this valuable resource. Do we dedicate it to Additive Manufacturing (powders for 3D printers), DrosriteTM, other development projects…or HPQ? The profit from the HPQ contract does not in and of itself justify dedicating such scarce resources to the project, the royalty from the success of the project, does.

Q. And that is a good segue into our last question. Some investors of HPQ have accused them of paying PyroGenesis for a project that has no risk to PyroGenesis. How would you respond to them?
A. Besides my answer above, where I describe the opportunity cost of the HPQ contract and the risk associated with that, I would have to add that PyroGenesis is not a charity and we are in the business of making money. Our expertise is unique and arguably, it is that exact expertise that has given this project, and HPQ, a life and a future. In short, you get what you pay for and we would not have done it for less…in fact, we wanted more and were negotiated to the current arrangement.
My final comment to any detractor of HPQ and HPQ management is: wake up. Wake up to the unique management you have, a management that was not only able to identify this opportunity, but also the players required to carry out the project. In fact, it took a lot of convincing by HPQ management to get PyroGenesis’ interest as HPQ did not fit our client/risk profile at all. All this to say that, take it from experience, encouraging management and getting behind it goes a long way to getting management up in the morning…to do it again and again …which, can do nothing but help the stock…. then bashing them with perverted 20/20 hindsight. Just a thought.

Q. Conclusion?
A. We believe the PUREVAP™ process to be game changing and has the potential to revolutionize the solar panel industry. We don’t know of any other process or technology that is able to do what we have done to date.
Not only have we progressed along the path to processing high purity quartz to solar grade silicon metal, but we have demonstrated the ability to convert low purity quartz to quality silicon metal suitable for other industries which was not contemplated when the project was initiated.
In short, PyroGenesis is happy with the progress to date and stand firmly behind the project. We are more convinced than ever before that we will be successful in having a commercially viable process at the end of the day.

It is anticipated that the Agreement would be extended for further terms at the conclusion of the first 2-year term. It also allows for exclusive distribution into this territory.
The Client specializes in advanced alloy powders for, amongst other industries, AM (3D Printing). They also produce metal powders and specialty parts. The Client is well established within the territory which is seeing one of the fastest growing demands for metal powders for AM.
“This Agreement is significant because (i) of the magnitude of the order when compared to previous year’s revenues, (ii) it validates our strategy as a powder supplier to the AM industry, and (iii) the potential additional growth that can develop from this relationship alone,” said Mr. P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “We did not expect to make such inroads into this particular geographic region before 2019, or even 2020. Although important, we did not see this as being what we call “low hanging fruit”, as we thought it would take a lot more time and effort before we could announce results like we have today. This Agreement compliments our Asian strategy nicely and was structured in such a way as not to impede other discussions taking place with others in the industry.”
“We believe that this is the beginning of a developing partnership as this is only the guaranteed minimum sales volume committed to by the Client,” added Mr. Massimo Dattilo, Vice President, Sales of PyroGenesis. “Of note, this Agreement is for titanium powders only. The Client also has a need for nickel alloy powders (such as Inconel) which we have already successfully produced, as well as aluminum alloy powders which we can also produce. We expect to gain traction with respect to these other powders as well.”

Habs die Meldungzwar nur überflogen, aber nun scheint es loszugehen mit den Pulver verkäufen und ist meiner Meinung erst der Anfang :cool:

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 57.784.135 von Gexe006 am 17.05.18 19:28:14 (Ti-6Al-4V) powders for use in the additive manufacturing (“AM”) industry, after having been qualified as an approved supplier by a client in Asia (the "Client"). This Agreement provides for a minimum sales volume of 10,000 kg (10 tons)

Also für 3D Qualität finde ich einen Preis von 160-460 $ pro kg.
Das ist aber sicher ein ( höherer ) Zwischenhändler Preis.

Müßte man halt wissen, wie hier die 10.000 abgerechnet werden.

Vielleicht haben wir für diese Größen einen Experten hier ?

Abnahme von Minimum 10 Tonnen und kann noch dazu kommen:

Womit ich nicht Kilogramm oder Tonnen meine, sondern Umstrukturierungen innerhalb von PYR.

Speziell denke ich ein 1-2 spin-offs der seit diesem Jahr profitablen Geschäftsbereiche:


( Titan -) Powder
(PyroGenesis Canada Inc. has signed its first major exclusive commercial agreement for the sale of titanium (Ti-6Al-4V) powders for use in the additive manufacturing industry, after having been qualified as an approved supplier by a client in Asia.)

und / oder

DROSRITE

(DROSRITE{A ™} systems to be delivered in 2018 and there is a high probability that the Company will be profitable in 2018 from the addition of DROSRITE{A ™} system sales to our backlog)


Dazu passt diese Personalie:

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 57.788.743 von married am 18.05.18 11:08:08Die Hoffnung auf ein Spin-Off ist einer meiner Gründe hier dabei zu sein:)

Hier noch ein paar Aussagen von Peter, geborgt aus dem Stockhouse Forum und mit Google übersetzt:
F & A-Zeit mit Peter-05/18/2018 zu: Industrialisierungsplan
Viel Spaß beim lesen All Longs re: Aktionärsfrage und unsere PYR CEO Antwort. Mach's gut, Alles Gute, Mit freundlichen Grüßen Topseeker ........... Industrialization Plan gepostet am 17. Mai 2018 23:35 Log dich ein um das IP Check Tool zu benutzen [?] Peter, In erster Linie herzlichen Glückwunsch auf dem heutigen unglaublichen Meilenstein. Die heutigen Nachrichten bestätigen, dass die Nachfrage nach Pyro-Pulvern auf dem Markt besteht, und setzt andere potenzielle Kunden unter Druck. Dieser Vertrag mag der erste sein, aber ich habe wenig Zweifel, dass es der letzte sein wird. Ich hoffe, Sie und Ihr Team feiern die heutige Leistung. Reichlich verdient. Aber jetzt, wo der Verkauf nicht mehr theoretisch ist, wird die Frage laut, ob ein Turm (und zwei weitere auf dem Weg) genug sind, um mit der Nachfrage Schritt zu halten. (Ich würde meine Pflichten als Anteilseigner vernachlässigen, wenn ich diese Gelegenheit nicht nutzen würde, um Sie um weitere Informationen zu bitten.) In Ihrer PR vom 26. Februar 2018 haben Sie erwähnt, dass Sie kurz vor dem Abschluss eines Industrialisierungsplans standen. Haben Sie weitere Details zum Plan selbst und wann beabsichtigen Sie, ihn umzusetzen? In Ihrer Jahresrückschau vom 30. April 2018 haben Sie außerdem festgestellt, dass Pyro gerade dabei ist, zusätzliche IP zu entwickeln, um Ihren Pulverproduktionsprozess kostengünstiger zu machen. Können Sie das näher ausführen? Und können Sie einen Überblick über den Fortschritt dieser Bemühungen, die erwartete Wirkung und Bedeutung des neuen geistigen Eigentums geben, und ob es in die neuen Türme integriert wird, die Sie erwarten, wird bis Ende Juli online sein? Nochmals herzlichen Glückwunsch zum heutigen Meilenstein. Ich bin mir sicher, dass es für dich und alle anderen, die in den letzten zwei Jahren so hart gearbeitet haben, kathartisch war. Ich freue mich, mit dabei zu sein. Wahrlich, JLM ............... Re: Industrialisierungsplan als Reaktion auf den Industrialisierungsplan von JLMMIA gepostet am 18. Mai 2018 um 09:18 Uhr Logge dich ein, um das IP-Check-Tool zu verwenden [?] Liebe JLM, Danke für deine freundlichen Worte der Anerkennung. Es war eine Teamarbeit und wir haben das beste Plasmateam der Welt, das hier arbeitet, und wir alle verdanken diesen Erfolg ihnen. Ich habe auch früher an jemanden bemerkt, dass, wenn Sie solche Nachrichten lesen, sich erinnern, dass es eine kombinierte Anstrengung der Technologie / Ideen und des Geldes war ... beide teilen die wichtigste Zutat: Vision. Unsere Unterstützer und Investoren haben nicht zuletzt dazu beigetragen, dass wir mit unseren Fortschritten die Welt verändern konnten. Also, Glückwunsch an Sie und all unsere Unterstützer, die das Vison geteilt haben, denn ohne diese ideale Kombination von Ideen und Geld wären wir heute nicht hier. In Bezug auf Ihre Fragen werde ich versuchen, sie so gut wie möglich im Rahmen öffentlich zugänglicher Informationen zu beantworten: Trotz unserer kürzlich angekündigten Pläne zur Kapazitätserweiterung glauben wir nicht, dass dies angesichts unseres Interesses an der potenziellen Nachfrage ausreichen wird sehen. Wir sind von Natur aus konservativ und zögern, Überkapazitäten aufzubauen, ohne genau zu wissen, wohin diese Kapazität fließt. Ich würde es hassen, mit einem Kunden, der weiß, dass ich auf Überkapazitäten sitze, einen langfristigen Take- oder Pay-Vertrag auszuhandeln. In diesem Sinne wissen die meisten, dass wir kein Fußballfeld nach dem Fußballfeld der Pulverproduktionssysteme haben und als solches erkennen, dass wir in jede Kapazität von angemessener Größe bauen müssten. Dieser Ausbau nennen wir unseren Industrialisierungsplan. Unser Industrialisierungsplan ist ein sehr detaillierter Plan für den genauen Aufbau jedes einzelnen Geräts und wie diese miteinander in Beziehung stehen. Um zu erkennen, dass ein solcher Plan etwa 6 Monate oder länger dauert, haben wir beschlossen, ihn vor einem großen Auftrag zu starten, um die Zeit später zu sparen. Der Plan ist zu einem gewissen Grad flexibel, da er den idealen Plan für 1 Einheit, 3 Einheiten oder 5 Einheiten artikuliert. So können wir die Pläne für fast jede ideale Konfiguration kombinieren (8 Einheiten wären 5 plus 3). Der Plan wird jedes Mal aktualisiert, wenn wir eine Verbesserung haben, mit der wir selbstbewusst genug sind, um sie zu vermarkten. Unsere Strategie besteht darin, den Industrialisierungsplan umzusetzen, wenn wir sicher sind, dass die Produktion gefordert wird. Im Idealfall würde dies in Verbindung mit einem Take-or-Pay-Vertrag stehen. Ein Take-or-Pay-Vertrag würde auch bei der Finanzierung des Ausbaus im Rahmen des Industrialisierungsplans helfen. Ich möchte nicht zu viel verraten, wenn ich über neue IP spreche, aber ich denke, es wäre sicher zu sagen, dass bei einer Verbesserung der Produktionsraten die Kosten sinken würden, wenn alles andere gleich ist. Ich denke, es ist auch sicher zu sagen, dass jedes vernünftige Management daran interessiert wäre, genau das zu tun. Das Erreichen dieses Ziels würde wahrscheinlich eine Kombination von Dingen sein, die jeweils zu dem beigetragen haben, was bereits erreicht wurde, und als solches als mehrere unabhängige Erfolge betrachtet werden können, im Gegensatz zu einem Treffer oder Fehlschlag. In Bezug auf dieses Thema, wer könnte es besser angehen als die Erfinder des Prozesses, die auch eine der größten Konzentrationen von Plasma-Know-how unter einem Dach haben? Ich kann mir keinen besseren vorstellen. Die neuen Türme haben einige Verbesserungen gegenüber dem älteren Modell eingebaut, aber nur die Verbesserungen, an denen wir festhalten. Im Vergleich zu dem, was wir testen, sind die eingebauten Verbesserungen vernachlässigbar. Die Herausforderung besteht darin, das Testen von Verbesserungen zu beschleunigen, so dass wir, wenn wir zur Durchführung des Industrialisierungsplans aufgefordert werden, dies zu den besten Produktionsraten tun können. Es ist ein schönes Problem zu haben. In Anbetracht dessen, wo wir im ersten Quartal 2017 waren, in diesem Bereich fast völlig unbekannt, sind wir sehr glücklich, dieses Thema heute zu haben. Ich vertraue darauf, dass Ihre Fragen beantwortet, Nochmals vielen Dank für die freundlichen Worte, Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Peter CEO PyroGenesis Canada Inc.

MONTREAL, May 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (PYR.V), a TSX Venture 50® high-tech company, (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis") a Company that designs, develops and manufactures plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch systems, is pleased to announce today that it has successfully demonstrated its Drosrite™ System (the “System”) in India to a client (“Client A”), and has separately received an order for a paid demonstration to recover zinc from dross from another client in the region (“Client B”). Client B, one of the biggest primary smelters of aluminum and zinc in the region, has an estimated need of upwards of ten (10) Systems (both zinc and aluminum) within its umbrella of companies.

As previously announced, PyroGenesis’ demonstration unit is currently booked until the end of September 2018 with paid-for-demonstrations in India. As a result of the strong demand for such demonstrations elsewhere, PyroGenesis is in the process of completing a second demonstration unit to be deployed in North America. It is expected that this second unit will start taking bookings at the end of this summer. To date, PyroGenesis has announced the sale of two (2) Systems, both of which were preceded by successful paid-for-demonstrations.

“Both these announcements today are important," said P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. "First, the successful demonstration with Client A has led, not only to discussions regarding procurement of a System for the facility, but also to scheduling of further paid-for-demonstrations at other facilities for Client A. We estimate that there is an immediate need for at least another six (6) Systems with this client. Separately, and most importantly, is the significance of having entered into a paid-for-demonstration with Client B to recover zinc from a zinc-based dross. This demonstration is expected to take place during this summer and, if successful, should translate into an immediate order. Although too early to tell, we expect that the economics and business case for the zinc recovery Systems may rival those of the previous aluminum recovery Systems.”

“This announcement with respect to zinc recovery is indeed an important development,” said David D’Aoust, Sales Manager, Drosrite™ of PyroGenesis. “As a result, PyroGenesis has effectively taken the first step into the zinc recovery market with its patented Drosrite™ System, and which we estimate to represent almost as great an opportunity as that for aluminum.”

"As previously announced, Drosrite™ is well on its way to becoming a solid contributor to PyroGenesis’ bottom line and today’s announcements further underscores that fact," said P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. "To put things in perspective, one only needs to remember where we were this time last year with respect to this business line, and then fast forward to today. Once again, PyroGenesis’ Board’s decision to target high value niche problems in various industries is bearing fruit.”

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, providing an impressive return on investment. The System has been designed to process and recover valuable metal such as aluminum, zinc and copper from dross.

a.) hier einganz "Großer" die Firma unfreundlich übernehmen, mind. einsteigen möchte und

b.) deshalb seit Monaten den Aktienkurs ( nach unten ) "manipuliert"
( vielleicht heute erneut ? )


Separately, at a recent board meeting dated May 29th, 2018, the Board of Directors of the Company passed a resolution, effectively accelerating the vesting period under the Company’s option agreements in the event of a change in control of the Company.

ORIGINAL: PyroGenesis Increases Ownership in HPQ Silicon Resources Inc. to 9.6%

2018-08-13 09:36 ET - News Release

MONTREAL, Aug. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V:PYR), a TSX Venture 50® high-tech company, (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis") a Company that designs, develops and manufactures plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch systems, is pleased to announce today, that it has increased its ownership in HPQ Silicon Resources Inc ("HPQ") to 9.6% (12.03% fully diluted) by acquiring 16,250,000 units (the “Unit”) of HPQ in a private placement at a price of 0.12$ per Unit for total investment of $1,950,000. Each Unit consists of one common share (a "Common Share") of HPQ and one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the Company to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.17 for a period of 36 months pursuant from the issue date.

As previously disclosed, PyroGenesis had 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 now designing, fabricating, assembling, commissioning and testing a PUREVAP™ pilot system to produce silicon metal directly from quartz.

The investment announced today is part of a total financing of $5,250,000 by HPQ. HPQ has announced today that it has secured a total financing package of $5,250,000 which includes a participation of $1,800,000 from the Government of Quebec through the Créativité Québec program under Investissement Quebec. As a result of this successful financing HPQ has fully secured its obligations under the contract with PyroGenesis.

“We wish to congratulate Bernard Tourillon, and the whole HPQ team, for putting together this financing which has in effect secured the financing for the balance of the project with PyroGenesis,” said Mr. P Peter Pascali, CEO and President of PyroGenesis. “The fact that after significant due diligence the Government of Quebec is now a significant player with HPQ speaks volumes for not only the progress we have made so far but the potential going forward. I expect that this is just one of many doors that will now open up for HPQ. We are working with a great team, with a great product, and we would not preclude increasing our ownership in HPQ in the future should the opportunity arise.”

Ich kann schwer einschätzen warum keine Namen des / der Kunde/n genannt werden ( dürfen ).

Man kann darüber spekulieren ob es damit zuammenhängt, dass die Kunden demnächst bei ihrem bisherigen ( marktbeherrschenden ) Powder-Lieferant abspringen und er das jetzt noch nicht wissen muss.

Und dann hoffe ich noch auf eine alsbaldige Aufteilung / Ausgliederung ihrer vielen Geschäftsbereiche

Bis jetzt gab es ja nur Gespräche mit dem Interessenten über die technischen Details. Damit ist der potentielle Kunde ja wohl sehr zufrieden. Der zweite Verhandlungsteil über die finanziellen Konditionen entscheidet dann ob der Vertrag zustande kommt.
Also ich würde mich aus wettbewerbstechnischen Gründen zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt auch bedeckt halten. ;)

ORIGINAL: PyroGenesis Recommended by Leading 3D Printer OEM to their Customers as Titanium Powder Supplier

2018-08-20 08:35 ET - News Release

MONTREAL, Aug. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR), a TSX Venture 50® high-tech company, (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis") a Company that designs, develops and manufactures plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch systems, is pleased to announce today that, further to a press release dated August 14, 2018 wherein it was noted that commercial discussions were taking place with a 3D Printer OEM, PyroGenesis announces today that it is now being recommended by the leading 3D Printer OEM to their customers as a powder supplier for titanium powders.

As previously mentioned, PyroGenesis’ powders had either met or exceeded rigorous property requirements under intensive chemical and mechanical analysis conducted by a leading 3D printer OEM. The powder tested was Ti-6Al-4V grade 23; one of the most sought-after powders in metal 3D Printing, particularly from plasma atomization. The analysis consisted of, amongst other things, validating chemical composition, printing properties, density, hardness and tensile strength. As noted, upon successful testing, discussions had turned to becoming a supplier of powders to both (i) the OEM, as well as (ii) their end-users.

“Being approved as a powder supplier to the OEM’s end-users is another major achievement and step forward for PyroGenesis,” said Mr. Massimo Dattilo, Vice President Sales of PyroGenesis. “It requires that PyroGenesis produce powders effectively and efficiently, has stringent quality control measures in place, has batch to batch consistency, as well as being competitively priced.”

Discussions continue with respect to becoming the primary supplier of powders to this leading 3D Printer OEM.

“This announcement is yet another step towards PyroGenesis’ goal of becoming a leading powder supplier to the Additive Manufacturing industry (AM),” said Mr. P Peter Pascali, CEO and President of PyroGenesis. “Given the recent announcements over the past three months, it is clear that PyroGenesis must be even more focused than ever before on addressing market demand for its powders.”

Quartalszahlen sind nicht so prickelnd aber das kommende Halbjahr bis Anfang 2019 werden spannend. Etliche Verträge und Vereinbarungen sollten dann unterschriftsreif sein.

Bis dahin glaube ich eher nicht an große Kurssprünge. :rolleyes:

Hier noch mal die Meldung grob übersetzt. Die eingeschlichenen Fehler dürft ihr behalten! :p

https://seekingalpha.com/pr/17257083-pyrogenesis-announces-q…

A - Pulver Produktion

Kürzlich abgeschlossener Vertrag über Lieferung von 10 Tonnen Titanpulver.

Pilotanlage läuft nach wesentlichen Verbesserungen.

D - US Millitär

Interesse an zwei weiteren US Aircraft Carrier Systemen, Auftrag für Q1 - 2019 erwartet

E - Verkauf von Plasmabrennern/Ausrüstungen

PyroGenesis spricht weiterhin das Interesse an Plasmabrennern und -Ausrüstungen an.

Auftrag noch vor Jahresende erwartet.


zu A - Pulver Produktion

PyroGenesis wurde zur "Materials Company of the Year" bei den 3D Printing Industry Awards 2018 ernannt.

Die erste Metallpulverproduktionsanlage wurde erfolgreich montiert und in Betrieb genommen, sowie auch erfolgreich Aufträge für Titan- und Inconel-Pulver geliefert.

Mehrere NDA's mit bedeutenden Akteuren der Branche (Endverbraucher, Druckerhersteller und Distributoren) wurden eingegangen, um Musteraufträge, Nachbestellungen, langfristige Aufträge, Auftragsforschung und/oder strategische Partnerschaften für langfristige Pulverlieferverträge, teilweise im Hinblick auf eine mögliche Übernahme, anzubieten.

Obwohl der strategische Plan des Unternehmens seit jeher auf dem bestehenden IP, Know-how und System basiert (dessen Wirtschaftlichkeit bis heute erhalten geblieben ist), hat sich das Management entschlossen, seinen bedeutenden Vorteil in der Plasmatechnologie zu nutzen und bestimmte begrenzte Vermögenswerte für die Erhöhung seiner IP-Basis einzusetzen, mit dem Ziel, die Kapital- und Betriebskosten der Pulverproduktionsanlage weiter deutlich zu senken und gleichzeitig die Produktionsraten noch weiter zu verbessern. PyroGenesis ist zuversichtlich, dass diese Ziele, wenn sie einmal erreicht sind, die Ausbaustrategie zum Besseren beeinflussen werden.

Die Pressemitteilung des Unternehmens vom 17. Mai 2018 die eine Vereinbarung über eine Mindestbestellmenge von 10.000 kg Titanpulver über zwei Jahre aus Asien ankündigte, zusammen mit den am 14. und 20. August veröffentlichten (Ergebnisse von Pulvertests durch einen führenden OEM sowie deren Empfehlung an seine Kunden, solches Pulver zu verwenden), hat die Notwendigkeit unterstrichen, dass PyroGenesis sich noch stärker als je zuvor auf die Marktnachfrage nach seinem Pulver ausrichten muss.

Das Unternehmen beschloss, einen optimalen Industrialisierungsplan für mehrere Pulverproduktionseinheiten vorzubereiten, der auf der Grundlage eines bedeutenden Take-or-Pay-Vertrags ausgeführt werden sollte. Dies ist nun abgeschlossen und das Unternehmen sucht weiter nach Möglichkeiten, die oben genannten technologischen Fortschritte zu beschleunigen.

zu B - DROSRITE™

Da sich das Unternehmen im Laufe des Jahres 2017 zu einem bedeutenden Pulverproduzenten für die Additivherstellungsindustrie entwickelte, positionierte es auch sein DROSRITE™-Ofensystem erfolgreich zu einer eigenständigen, voll kommerziellen Produktlinie.

Das System wurde bereits einmal verkauft und es erfolgte auch bereits eine Nachfolgebestellung.

Erfolgreiche kostenpflichtige Vorführungen des Systems im Mittleren Osten und Indien. In Indien sind die Vorführungen bis Oktober ausgebucht.

Die gesamte weltweite Produktion von Aluminiumschlacke betrug 3.000.000.000 TPY in 2017.
PyroGenesis hat Systeme entwickelt, die entweder 500, 3.000 oder 5.000 TPY verarbeiten können, was einem Marktpotenzial von über 1 Milliarde Dollar allein aus Aluminiumschlacke entspricht.

PyroGenesis zielt derzeit aggressiv sowohl auf Primäraluminiumhütten in Asien und dem Mittleren Osten, wo der Markt auf über 1 Million Tonnen Krätze2 geschätzt wird, als auch auf Produzenten von Tertiärguss weltweit. Das Unternehmen hat kürzlich die Zinkrückgewinnung aus Krätze als Zielmarkt hinzugefügt.

Aufgrund dieser hohen Nachfrage nach kostenpflichtigen Vorführungen vor Ort ist das Unternehmen dabei, ein zweites DROSRITE™ Demonstrationssystem aufzubauen, das voraussichtlich im dritten Quartal 2018 verfügbar sein wird. Es besteht eine hohe Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass PyroGenesis im Jahr 2018 aus dem Verkauf von Systemen in Kombination mit dem bestehenden Auftragsbestand profitabel sein wird.

Die Gesellschaft prüft auch die Möglichkeit, im Rahmen langfristiger Take-or-Pay-Verträge vor Ort Krätze-Dienstleistungen zu erbringen. Das Unternehmen hat festgestellt, dass ein großes Interesse an dieser Dienstleistung von Hüttenbetreibern besteht, die sich nicht in einem anderen Geschäftsbereich engagieren wollen, aber offen für eine Vor-Ort-Maut im Rahmen einer Vorteilsausgleichsvereinbarung wären. PyroGenesis ist auch in Gesprächen mit potenziellen Partnern, die das Management und die Unterstützung vor Ort übernehmen und gleichzeitig diese Möglichkeit beschleunigen würden.

zu C - US Millitär

Ursprünglich dachte man, dass 2018 nur ein neuer US Aircraft Carrier mit einem geschätzten Wert von ca. 6 Mio. US$ bestellt werden würde, aber jetzt scheint es so, dass das Interesse für zwei weitere mit einem geschätzten Wert zwischen 10-12 Mio. US$ vorliegt. Dieser Vertrag wird nun für das erste Quartal 2019 erwartet.

Die Vernichtungseinheit für chemische Kriegsführung, die PyroGenesis für ein Konsortium mit verschiedenen Gruppen innerhalb des US-Militärs entwickelt hat und das derzeit getestet wird, hat weiterhin einen verzögerten Zeitplan, der andere, nicht damit zusammenhängende Testanforderungen der Gruppe berücksichtigt. Dieser Testzeitraum liegt außerhalb der Kontrolle des Unternehmens.

Die Einnahmen aus Militärverträgen beliefen sich im Jahr 2017 auf über 4.300.000 US-Dollar, hauptsächlich im Zusammenhang mit der Bereitstellung von technischem Support, Schulungsdienstleistungen und dem Verkauf von Ersatzteilen. In den letzten drei Jahren haben die Einnahmen aus Militärverträgen in der Regel mehr als 2.000.000.000 $ pro Jahr der Einnahmen von PyroGenesis betragen. Da die PAWDS-Technologie auf Schiffen der US Navy voll einsatzfähig ist, erwartet das Management, dass die wiederkehrenden Umsätze aus dem Verkauf von Teilen und Dienstleistungen in den nächsten 2 bis 5 Jahren steigen werden.

Das Unternehmen sucht nach Möglichkeiten, eine Präsenz in den USA aufzubauen, um unter anderem die Bedürfnisse des US-Militärs, die sich aus dem Betrieb mehrerer Systeme ergeben, besser bedienen zu können.

zu D - HPQ

Am 2. August 2016 gab PyroGenesis bekannt, dass sie mit HPQ Silicon Resources Verträge über 8.260.000 $ für den Verkauf von IP und die Bereitstellung einer Pilotanlage zur Herstellung von hochreinem Siliziummetall direkt aus Quarz unterzeichnet hat. Besonders hervorzuheben ist, dass PyroGenesis im Erfolgsfall eine Lizenzgebühr von 10% auf alle Einnahmen aus der Nutzung dieses Systems durch HPQ erhält, vorbehaltlich jährlicher Mindestbeträge.

zu E - Plasmabrenner und Ausrüstungen

Im Einklang mit der Gesamtstrategie des Unternehmens, die Abhängigkeit von langfristigen Projekten durch die Entwicklung eines strategischen Portfolios volumenorientierter Produkte mit hoher Marge und geringem Risiko, die spezifische Probleme in Nischenmärkten lösen, zu reduzieren und diese plasmabasierten Technologien in Branchen einzuführen, die solche Lösungen noch nicht in Betracht gezogen haben, und um wiederkehrende Umsatzchancen, die einen wachsenden und profitablen, regelmäßigen Cashflow für das Unternehmen generieren, aktiv zu nutzen, vermarktet das Unternehmen weiterhin seine Plasmabrenner-/Ausrüstungskapazitäten und erwartet, dass dies in sehr naher Zukunft zu einem Umsatzträger mit wiederkehrenden Umsatzerlösen wird.

PyroGenesis verfügt über eine der größten Konzentrationen an Plasmakompetenz weltweit, mit gesammelter technischer Erfahrung und unterstützenden Patenten von über 250 Jahren, kombiniert mit einzigartigen Beziehungen zu großen Universitäten, die hochmoderne Plasmaforschung und -entwicklung betreiben.

Der Fokus des Managements wird weiterhin darauf liegen, einen verbesserten Mix aus kurz- und langfristigen Projekten zu generieren, der wiederum die operative und finanzielle Planung erleichtert. Wiederholungsaufträge für gleiche oder ähnliche Produkte führen zu einer weiteren Vereinheitlichung der Fertigungsprozesse und damit zu verbesserten Bruttomargen.

Alle Anzeichen deuten darauf hin, dass 2018 ein profitables Jahr für das Unternehmen werden sollte, da die Geschäftsbereiche, mit Ausnahme der nicht-additiven Fertigung, weiterhin signifikant zum Umsatz von PyroGenesis beitragen. Das Management geht davon aus, dass die nicht-additiven Fertigungsbereiche des Konzerns im Jahr 2018 allein genügend Umsatz generieren werden, um PyroGenesis insgesamt profitabel zu machen.

PyroGenesis to buy back up to five million shares

2018-09-06 09:53 ET - News Release

Mr. Peter Pascali reports

PYROGENESIS ANNOUNCES INTENTION TO PURCHASE UP TO 4.1% OF ITS COMMON SHARES IN OPEN MARKET

PyroGenesis Canada Inc. intends to implement a normal course issuer bid through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Pursuant to the normal course issuer bid, PyroGenesis proposes to purchase, from time to time, over a period of 12 months, up to five million of its common shares issued and outstanding (approximately 4.1 per cent). As of the date hereof, there are 122,895,342 Shares of PyroGenesis issued and outstanding.

Purchases under the normal course issuer bid will commence on acceptance and approval of the TSX-V and will expire on the earlier of: (i) one year from such commencement; or (ii) the date on which the company has purchased the maximum number of shares to be acquired under the normal course issuer bid. All purchases made by the company will be through Pollitt & Co. Inc. acting on behalf of the company in accordance with the rules of the TSX-V. The actual number of shares that will be purchased and the timing of such purchases will be determined by the company, and the price that the company will pay for the shares will be the market price at the time of the purchase.

The company's board of directors believes that the market price of the company's shares does not reflect the underlying value of the company, specifically its growth opportunities, and that the proposed purchasing of its shares is in the best interests of the company and represents an appropriate use of corporate funds. Any purchases made by the company could also enhance value and liquidity for its continuing shareholders.

"At these price levels, we find the value of our shares to be an attractive investment and, as such, a good use of funds, particularly given our recent press releases, which describe, amongst other things, that: (i) the company contracted for an order of 10 tons (minimum) of titanium powders; (ii) is now recommended by a leading 3-D printer OEM [original equipment manufacturer] to their customers; (iii) has embraced a tolling strategy for its Drosrite system with joint venture discussions in progress; and (iv) interest by the U.S. military for two aircraft carrier systems continues. This is all within the background of being nominated Materials Company of the Year at the 3-D Printing Industry Awards 2018 and continued strategic commercial discussions with significant players within the additive manufacturing industry," said P. Peter Pascali, president and chief executive officer of PyroGenesis. "Despite our daily trading volume being respectable, we believe that the share price does not fully reflect this news. We find it inconceivable that PyroGenesis is approximately half the market value than it was at the end of January, 2018, particularly given the news released since that time. As such, we feel it is an opportune time to buy PyroGenesis's shares."

PyroGenesis Announces Receipt of Payment of $561,600 from HPQ; Assembly Phase of Pilot Equipment Commences

http://www.pyrogenesis.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/PyroGe…

MONTREAL, Quebec (GlobeNewswire – September 13th, 2018) - PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR), a TSX Venture 50® high-tech company (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis"), a Company that designs, develops and manufactures plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch systems, is pleased to announce today that it has received a milestone payment of $561,600 from HPQ Silicon Resources (“HPQ”). Furthermore, the recent delivery of the Gen3 PUREVAP™ furnace marks the start of the assembly phase of the pilot plant (the “Plant”) in a dedicated area within the production facility at PyroGenesis. The Plant is expected to be completed and operational by mid-year 2019.

The Plant will have an output capacity of 50 tonnes per year, or ~1,000 kg of material per week. This step in the program is the single largest scaling up step and, once successful, will pave the way for an order from HPQ for the first commercial production unit, expected in 2020.

“We’re glad to have reached this new milestone for the project,” said Mr. Pierre Carabin, Chief Technology Officer of PyroGenesis. “We are looking forward to the doors it opens and the opportunities it provides.”

“We are very excited to move to this final stage of the PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor testing program. Now that we have closed all necessary financings, we can focus efforts on the process improvements, scalability, seeking customers, and preparing for commercialization,” said Mr. Bernard J. Tourillon, Chairman, President and CEO of HPQ Silicon. “With these financings closed, our objective going forward will be delivering on the Gen3 PUREVAP™ pilot plant phase with our “Solar Silicon Team” as well as building market awareness of our progress, plans and success.”

ORIGINAL: PyroGenesis Announces Receipt of Multi-Million Dollar Order for Two DROSRITE™ Furnace Systems

2018-09-18 08:35 ET - News Release

MONTREAL, Sept. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR), a TSX Venture 50® high-tech company, (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis") a Company that designs, develops and manufactures plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch systems, is pleased to announce today that it has received a multi-million dollar order for two (2) DROSRITE™ furnace systems (the “Systems”) from an Asian client (the “Client”); the name, and value of the contract, remain confidential for competitive reasons.

The Systems are the third and fourth commercial systems sold to date, and the first order from this new Client. Delivery of the Systems is expected to be in April 2019.

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, providing an impressive return on investment. The system has been designed to process and recover valuable metal such as aluminum, zinc and copper from dross.

“DROSRITE™ has been many years in the making; from the original paid-for-demonstration, to the delivery and acceptance of a first commercial unit, to a reorder from the same customer,” said Mr. Pierre Carabin, Chief Technology Officer of PyroGenesis. “This order, announced today, from a new Client, positions PyroGenesis as a solid provider of industrial furnaces to the metallurgical industry; particularly to the aluminum sector. PyroGenesis’ DROSRITE™ system provides exceptional return on investment to our customers, all with a green technology that has, in our opinion, no equivalent in the market.”

The previously announced paid-for-demonstration for zinc recovery in India is about to begin, and the trials are expected to be completed within the next ten (10) weeks. In addition, previously announced tolling discussions continue with potential joint venture partners. A successful site visit was recently completed.

“This double order, from a new Client, reflects the fact that DROSRITE™ is finally gaining acceptance. The addition of the mini DROSRITE™ (500 TPY), to our original offering (5,000 TPY), together with the decision to embrace tolling opportunities, has effectively positioned PyroGenesis as a one stop shop for dross processing,” said Mr. P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “The announcement today must be taken in the context of what we are doing; we are essentially introducing a new technology into a very conservative industry. This is not a platform where change is expected and embraced. To the contrary, the mere fact that we claim to be able to process dross without salt is viewed skeptically and, as such, is another hurdle we had to overcome. What is readily apparent to us is the value proposition DROSRITE™ offers to an industry that rarely sees improvements of such magnitude, and what that means for PyroGenesis. There is over 3,000,000 TPY1 of Aluminum dross produced, which when added to the market for processing zinc and copper dross, creates a very significant business opportunity for the Company. Given the fact that, as I said, this is a new technology we are introducing to a conservative industry, it was difficult to predict with certainty if, and when, DROSRITE™ would take hold, but there was no doubt in our mind that when it did, and it looks like this double order is the start, it would be significant and long term, creating additional value for shareholders.”

Furthermore, PyroGenesis will be presenting its DROSRITE™ solution, and exhibiting at “Aluminium 2018” being held in Düsseldorf, Germany between October 9 and 11 (Hall 11, booth G50/06). Contact us to book an appointment or meet with us there.

Separately, the Company has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange of the previously announced Normal Course Issuer Bid to purchase up to 5% of the Company’s common shares issued and outstanding over a period of twelve (12) months.

PyroGenesis Announces MM non-Brokered Private Placement
PyroGenesis Announces $4MM non-Brokered Private Placement; $2MM subscribed to by CEO; Provides Clarification of Previous Financings and Related Parties

Ich verstehe die Meldung nicht wirklich, gibt es jetzt eine neue Kapitalerhöhung oder ist dies nur eine Zusammenfassung der älteren:confused:

MONTREAL, Quebec (GlobeNewswire – September 28th, 2018) - PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR), a TSX Venture 50® high-tech company, (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis") a Company that designs, develops and manufactures plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch systems, is pleased to announce today that that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement financing (the "Offering") for gross proceeds up to $4,060,000, by issuing 7,000,000 Units at a price of $0.58 per Unit.
Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company and one full common share purchase warrant (“Unit Warrant”), each full Unit Warrant entitling the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.58 until January 28, 2021.
Fiducie de Crédit Mellon Trust, a trust related to Mr. P. Peter Pascali, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation has subscribed for an aggregate amount of 3,448,276 Units of the Corporation (the "Units") at a price of $0.58 per Unit, for gross proceeds of $2,000,000.08 to the Corporation.

The Private Placement is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) as well as other customary closing conditions.




Separately, the Company provides clarity on the following issues:
Related Parties:
For sake of clarity, Photis Peter and Peter Photis Pascali are in fact two different people. Photis Peter Pascali is the CEO of PyroGenesis Canada Inc, and the son of Peter Photis Pascali.
In the recent past, related parties were noted as being:
• Photis Peter Pascali, CEO of PyroGenesis • Peter Photis Pascali, Father of the CEO • Fiducie de Crédit Mellon Trust, a trust related to Mr. Photis Peter Pascali, • 8339856 Canada Inc, a legal entity related to Mr. Photis Peter Pascali, • Phoenix Haute Technology Inc, a legal entity related to Mr. Peter Photis Pascali
Peter Photis Pascali and Phoenix Haute Technology Inc are no longer related to the Company.
Q1 2018 Private placements (Consisting of Initial Subscriptions on February 9, 2018 announced in a press release dated February 9th, 2018 and Subsequent Subscriptions on March 7, 2018 announced in press releases dated March 7th, 2018):
4,871,429 units were issued.
Each unit consisted of one common share in the capital of the Company and one full common share purchase warrant. Each full warrant entitling the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $1.25 until August 9, 2019.
$1,329,999.30 of the Initial Subscriptions were later credited to a settlement of $5,531,928 claim on April 30, 2018 (more fully described below) filed by Peter Photis Pascali and, as such, have been reallocated as a share for debt Transaction. The appropriate amendments have been filed with the required authorities. Each Unit was subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the date of closing.

Initial Amount:
Tabelle siehe Link oben, da es beim kopieren und einfügen nur ein durcheinander von Zahlen gibt.

For further clarification we advise that as a result of the Initial Subscriptions and Subsequent Subscriptions, the Corporation had issued and sold pursuant in the Private Placements a total of 2,971,430 Units for gross proceeds of $2,080,001 to the Corporation. The proceeds from the Private Placements were used by the Corporation for general corporate purposes. Concurrently the Company issued shares for debt in the amount of 1,899,999 Units representing the settlement of $1,329,999.30 of a claim described below.
With respect to the final settlement of claim described in the Company’s audited year-end financial statements 2017 issued on April 30, 2018:

Subsequent to year end, the Company and Mr. Peter Photis Pascali, the father of the CEO Photis Peter Pascali, and unrelated to the Company, entered into a settlement agreement to resolve a claim in the amount of $5,531,928 filed on or about April, 5, 2018, made by Mr. Peter Photis Pascali, in connection with the share for debt conversion transaction between the parties that took place in 2014. Under the share for debt conversion, the Company issued 7,500,000 common shares in 2014 to settle $6,000,000 of the carrying value of the Balance of sale payable. The current claim was settled for an amount of $3,699,999.80. The settlement agreement also constitutes the final payment of the Balance of sale, and provides for the issuance of units by the Company having a fair value of $3,327,571 to Mr. Peter Photis Pascali as follows: (i) on February 9 and March 7, 2018, issuance of 1,899,999 units at a value of $0.70 per unit with each unit consisting of 1 common share of the Company and 1 common share purchase warrant which entitles the holder to purchase 1 common share at a price of $1.25 until August 9th , 2019, and (ii) on April 30, 2018, issuance of 3,385,715 units at a value of $0.59 per unit with each unit consisting of 1 common share of the Company and 1 common share purchase warrant which entitles the holder to purchase 1 common share at a price of $0.85 until April 19, 2020. As the claim related to a dispute that existed at year-end, a liability and related expense of $3,215,643 was recorded as at December 31, 2017. The liability was measured based on the fair value of the units as at their issuance date, which is $0.70 on February 9 and March 7, 2018 and $0.59 on April 30, 2018.






In Summary:

MONTREAL, Quebec (GlobeNewswire – October 10th, 2018) - PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR), a TSX Venture 50® high-tech company, (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis") a Company that designs, develops and manufactures plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch systems, is pleased to announce today that the U.S. Congress has supported the U.S. Navy’s strategy for a two-ship (aircraft carrier) buy.

This bill is now being sent to the President of the United States for his signature. The U.S. Navy will still need approval from the Secretary of Defense. This endorsement by Congress appears to be the last legislative hurdle for the purchase to clear.

The proposed dual buy stands to save the U.S. Government between US $1 billion and US $2.5 billion, according to U.S. Navy estimates1.

“This is in line with the President’s platform to “buy more for less”, and is great news for PyroGenesis as we are a proud supplier of a plasma based waste destruction system to the U.S. Navy, having delivered two systems to date,” said Mr. P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “The original schedule envisioned ordering one aircraft carrier in 2018.

Zinc Paid-for-Demonstration of DROSRITE™ in India
PyroGenesis Announces Receipt of Down Payment Towards Previously Announced Zinc Paid-for-Demonstration of DROSRITE™ in India; Provides Update on DROSRITE™ Business Line.

http://www.pyrogenesis.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/PyroGe…

MONTREAL, QUEBEC (GlobeNewswire – October 25th, 2018) - PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR) (OTCQB: PYRNF), a TSX Venture 50® high-tech company, (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis") a Company that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch products, is pleased to announce today the receipt of a down payment towards the previously announced zinc Paid-for-Demonstration of DROSRITE™ in India, and 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. Before we jump into the essence of your announcement could you once again, for those that are new to the DROSRITE™ story, please describe to us what DROSRITE™ is, and some of its many advantages?

A. Most certainly. It’s simple. Let’s take an aluminum smelter as an example. As the hot aluminum is formed, it comes in contact with oxygen, and a dross is formed on the surface. This dross acts like a sponge and it effectively absorbs valuable metal. The smelter skims the dross and puts it aside to cool down. Although dross is considered a waste generated by the metallurgical industry, it contains valuable metal that the smelter would like to reclaim. Typically, the dross is sent off site to be processed by a third party who usually uses a saltbased recovery system. Salt, if it comes in contact with aluminum, could contaminate the batch and, as such, salt is usually prohibited from being on site and, ergo, the need to ship dross off-site to be processed. These third parties, who use salt, generate salt cakes, which are a hazardous by-product of their dross processing technique. PyroGenesis' DROSRITE™ system is a salt-free, cost-effective, sustainable process for maximizing metal recovery from dross. 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, without producing any hazardous by-products, while at the same time (ii) reducing operating costs.

In short, PyroGenesis’ DROSRITE™ system is a proven method of recovering valuable metal from dross that (i) is salt-free, so no hazardous by-products, (ii) can process the dross cheaper than conventional methods, and (iii) has demonstrated higher metal recovery rates. Non-hazardous, cheaper and with higher recovery rates, who could ask for more? The increased recovery rate alone can save an owner/operator over $1M/yr using PyroGenesis’ DROSRITE™ system.

Q. Is the PyroGenesis patented DROSRITE™ process limited to processing Aluminum Dross?

A. Absolutely not. Our primary target is currently aluminum dross as this was the market we first introduced the DROSRITE™ process to and, as you can imagine, it is much easier to leverage of that success than to start marketing to a new sector. However, we have identified zinc and copper smelters as being potential beneficiaries of our proprietary process as well. In fact, our announcement today is important because the last hurdle to demonstrate our DROSRITE™ process for zinc has been eliminated with the receipt of this down payment.

Q. Could you elaborate?

A. Sure. This zinc demonstration was opportunistic. As I said we are currently targeting aluminum dross and leveraging off our experience and results in that sector. However, we are not oblivious to the opportunities zinc and copper dross present. Our strategy has been to target companies with multiple facilities, and thus multiple needs for aluminum dross processing. Our demonstration system is currently booked in India with paid-for-demonstrations with aluminum smelter clients. One of these clients also has a need to process zinc dross. This particular client has asked us to process their zinc dross and that is what we announced today. This is an important development as a successful zinc demonstration will provide us with data, and a reference plant, from which we could leverage future sales.


Q. You are currently targeting the aluminum dross opportunities and now you are addressing the zinc dross need. Could you put into context the size of these markets?

A. We do not have quotable statistics with respect to zinc dross, but with respect to aluminum dross there are over 3,000,0001 tons of aluminum dross produced every year. We currently offer 500 and 5,000 tonnes per year (tpy) DROSRITE™ systems. The 5,000 tpy system sells for over $1,000,000. If all the world’s dross supply were to be addressed with our 5,000 tpy system, then this would equate to a $600 million business. Obviously, this would never be the case, but I use it as a basis for demonstrating the size of the marketplace… assuming we can only address 40% of the market then it is a $240 million business etc. etc.


Q. You seem to be addressing, and increasing your addressable, target markets quite well. You recently press released that you are now embracing a tolling strategy. Could you discuss how tolling fits within the strategy of selling systems? Maybe you could first remind us how the tolling model works?

A. Absolutely. A tolling service arrangement is one in which a smelter provides dross to a third party to process either on or off-site. In our case, PyroGenesis would provide a tolling service using its proprietary DROSRITE™ System to process the dross and recover valuable metals for a fee. The benefits would be shared with the smelter. Our tolling service offerings would be in addition to our selling systems. We have found that, although many smelters like the idea of operating their own systems, there are quite a few who would prefer not to. As such, tolling targets another type of customer: one that doesn’t want to own/process dross on their own. These customers would prefer to have a third party process the dross either off, or on-site. We are positioning ourselves to be that third party.

Q. How important do you think tolling will become in your overall DROSRITE™ strategy?

A. It is the most important element in our overall strategy. It provides for recurring revenues over a long period of time. With long term contacts in hand, it de-risks the technology from the customary threats a strategy of selling systems would be challenged with.

More importantly, the business potential from tolling is significantly greater than selling systems. Assuming each 5,000 tpy system saves at least $1,000,000 then this represents a market of $600 million/yr in revenues.

You can see why tolling is our primary focus these days.


Q. Could you elaborate on the difference between on-site and off-site tolling?

A. The industry standard dross recovery technology, Rotary Salt Furnace (RSF), cannot be operated onsite. As a result, a comprehensive network of large off-site dross processing plants has formed around the world, tolling aluminum dross for multiple primary aluminum smelters at singular, central plants. This has become the global standard practice for aluminum dross processing. DROSRITE™ tolling is an impending catalyst for disruption in this long-established industry of off-site aluminum dross processing. Remember that with DROSRITE™, we can process an aluminum smelter’s dross inside their plant, or on-site, which comes with significant financial benefits and allows us to maximize aluminum recovery rates. With DROSRITE™ tolling, PyroGenesis is offering to build, install, and operate smaller, localized, dross recovery plants inside a primary aluminum smelters plant. Think of it as a dross recovery plant which is owned and staffed by PyroGenesis, operating 24/7 inside the smelter’s premises as a third-party contractor.

Due to the highly profitable nature of operating DROSRITE™, which is further enhanced when operating on-site, we have lower operational costs, recover significantly more aluminum from the dross, and eliminate the logistical issues that smelters currently face in transporting dross hundreds or thousands of kilometres away to off-site tolling plants. Today’s network of off-site tollers will have a great deal of difficulty competing. What is noteworthy is that, in the steel industry, on-site tolling of steel dross has been the foundation on which several blue-chip industrial companies were built. A quick Google search for “Steel Slag Recycling” reveals this. On-site tolling of steel dross has arguably become internationally recognized as the steel industries ‘best practice’ for managing their slags.

PyroGenesis is holding the key to offering on-site dross tolling services to the primary aluminum industry with DROSRITE™. It is an understatement to say that we are confident that the model of on-site DROSRITE™ tolling will become the primary aluminum industries standardized ‘best practice’ for managing their aluminum dross.



Q. What do you need to do to execute on this tolling strategy? What can investors expect to see with respect to this?

A. We are fully capable of tolling in North America and in unique one-off projects where we are invited to do so. In fact, we are pursuing some as we speak. However, we would be fooling ourselves if we thought we had the administrative depth to address 99.9% of the tolling opportunities outside of North America. We do not have the knowledge or experience in the many local cultures where tolling would be attractive. We do not know, or understand, the local customs, labor laws etc. In order to address these opportunities, we would need to team up with many local players or, preferably, one larger global player. Until we find the right partner, tolling will move forward, but at a fraction of its potential with the right global player.

Q. Are you currently in discussions with any global players in this regard?

A. We are actively pursuing tolling and as such we are actively pursuing such a relationship.


Q. When might a tolling partner be identified?

A. We have targeted no later than Q2 2019, hopefully before Christmas, but then again it could be any day now. We would prefer to team up with one global partner. We are very particular about who we would partner with. It is going to be a long-term relationship, wherein we are managing many facilities together, in far-flung locations, so choosing the right partner is critical. We are not in a rush.

PyroGenesis Announces Signing with Japanese Multi-Billion Dollar Corporation to Jointly Toll with DROSRITE™


MONTREAL, Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR), a TSX Venture 50® high-tech company, (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis") a Company that designs, develops and manufactures plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch systems, is pleased to announce today that, further to its press release dated October 25th, 2018, the Company has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (the “Agreement”) with one of the largest Japanese trading houses (“the Partner”; together “the Parties”) which outlines the understanding of how the Parties will move forward towards a potential joint venture partnership (the “JV”) for the purpose of developing DROSRITE™ tolling services globally.

A tolling service arrangement is one in which a smelter provides dross to a third party to process either on or off-site. The Agreement envisions moving forward with test cases to provide tolling services. These test cases would serve as a basis on which to determine, if, and how, the Parties would jointly provide tolling services on a global basis.

“Before the introduction of PyroGenesis’ patented DROSRITE™ system to the marketplace, options for on-site tolling with a salt-free, high recovery rate technology were extremely limited, if not nonexistent,” said Mr. Pierre Carabin, CTO and Chief Strategist of PyroGenesis. “The advent of DROSRITE™ opens up an alternative for aluminum producers looking to maximize recovery of metal, while using a technology that is compatible with their operations, avoiding altogether the risk of salt contamination.”

The Partner is one of the largest Japanese trading houses (Revenues: > Can$5.4 billion; Profit: > Can$2.0 billion; Assets: > Can$25 billion) with more than 400 subsidiaries and affiliates worldwide, and extensive relationships with smelters globally.

“Tolling is the ultimate recurring revenue stream for our DROSRITE™ business line. Teaming up with a large multi-national corporation, who has the experience and organizational depth required to execute this strategy, will help accelerate our time to market,” said Mr. P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “We know of no other process that can offer the same savings as the one we are offering the aluminum industry. Of note, in a separate industry, tolling steel slag on-site is a very profitable business model which has been the foundation on which several billion dollar blue-chip industrial companies were built. We intend to introduce this business model, with our Partner, to the aluminum industry, which, of note, is recognized as the steel industry’s ‘best practice’ for managing their slag.”

The Agreement announced today envisions the Parties eventually forming a JV to provide tolling services on a global basis. In such cases, the Parties would provide tolling services using PyroGenesis’ proprietary DROSRITE™ system to process the dross and recover valuable metals for a fee. The JV would speak to the strengths of each Party; namely, PyroGenesis’ technology and operational expertise with its patented process, and the Partner’s extensive global network and administrative depth.

“Today’s industry standard dross recovery technology, the Rotary Salt Furnace (RSF), cannot be economically operated on-site. As a result, a network of off-site dross tollers formed around the world, tolling dross for many smelters at central facilities. With DROSRITE™, we have the flexibility of processing a smelter’s dross inside their plant, which comes with significant financial benefits and allows us to maximize recovery rates. As such, PyroGenesis’ DROSRITE™ tolling is a potential catalyst for disruption in today’s long-established industry of off-site aluminum dross processing,” said Mr. David D’Aoust, Sales Manager - DROSRITE™. “Total worldwide production of Aluminum dross was approximately 3,000,000 TPY in 20171. PyroGenesis’ tolling system is designed to process 5,000 TPY. When combined with dross produced by zinc and copper smelters this represents a market potential of over $1 billion in recurring revenues per year assuming all dross was tolled, and may explain, in part, the interest by our Partner to toll with us.”

“This is a very significant step for both PyroGenesis and the industry and is quite timely with respect to our strategy to toll,” said Mr. P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “Our strategy to both sell our tolling capabilities, as well as trying to convert sales of systems into tolling opportunities, has resulted in very advanced discussions with four (4) different smelters for a total of eleven (11) systems dedicated to tolling. Without a doubt, the signing of this Agreement is timely as we can now introduce our Partner who could only accelerate these discussions, with a higher probability of success, and this is only the beginning.”

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, providing an impressive return on investment. The system has been designed to process and recover valuable metal such as aluminum, zinc and copper from dross.

Separately, PyroGenesis announces that the TSX Venture Exchange has accepted the Company’s proposal to issue 3,385,715 common shares at a price of $0.70 per share and 3,385,715 warrants, to settle outstanding debts related to accrued interest for a total amount of $2,370,000.50 on outstanding debt of the Company. Each warrant entitles the holder to buy a common share at $0.85 until April 30, 2020. For further information, please refer to the Company’s Press Release dated September 28th, 2018.

Habe soviele Zettelchen, kam noch nicht zum Lesen.
Was börsennotierte betrifft.
ONVO waren nicht dort, Protolabs auch nicht.
Materialise hatten einen sehr großen Stand, kapier allerdings immer noch nicht deren Software.
Sogar die winzige 3d-DruckerSoftwareklitsche SigmaLabs waren da, hab auch ein paar Zettelchen von denen.
SSYS und ADSK sind keine Frage, DDD im Metallbereich sehr gut aufgestellt.
HP sehr professionell, aber alles das gleiche.
Renishaw läuft unter der gleichen Tech wie alle. Einzig Dassault habe ich nicht besucht.
Titomic hat mich nicht so angesprochen - aber wer Fahrräder und E-Räder mag, könnte noch mehr werden..
SPEE3D werden ebenso gehypt, große Gullideckel und Drehräder sind da machbar, aber nix für mich, und sehr ungenau druch dieses Kaltspritzen.

SLM ist auf jeden Fall ein guter Zug, denke ich, falls sie inzwischen günstig sein sollten, was möglich wäre...

ExOne, hmm kann jeder. Voxeljet hat eine neue Großmaschine für Sandformen mit umweltfreundlichem Kleber, ich kenne keine umweltfreudlichen Kleber, die gibt es einfach nicht - meine Meinung.
Aber auch Voxeljet hat Konkurrenz, auch wenn ich das genannte Unternehmen nicht kannte, danke der Mitarbeiterin für diese Info.

NNDM war natürlich auch da, ist aber nicht deren Zielgruppe, eher die Elektronik.

Desktop Metal und XJet hatten beide Protzstände, ist nicht mein Ding und was bringt es, wenn alles sooo langsam druckt? Aber trotzdem gute Tech.



Mir ist aufgefallen, mit Holz wird nicht gedruckt, aber viel mit Sand und Keramik, alle Kunststoffdrucker habe ich erst garnicht beachtet.
Viele dt. Ingenieurspower da mit guten Ideen etwa im Bereich Bionic oder Nischen.

Die meisten Chinesen vertreiben Metallpülverchen oder drucken Quietscheentchen. Keinerlei Innovation seitens der Chinesen, wie man es gewohnt ist. die bringen nur alte Sachen unter anderem Namen, 5 - 2 Jahre alt.
Wie wollen die in KI vorwärtskommen, mit Manpower???

Carbon ist im Kunststoffbereich das Nonplusultra, wenn man sich die "gedruckten" Teile ansieht, Sohlen für Turnschuhe, und die Connections mit den großen Firmen, da sieht man, was man mit Hilfe vernetzter Investoren aus dem Silicon Valley innerhalb weniger Jahre aufzieht.

Ich würde jetzt einmal bisschen frech in Den Raum schreien:
Wer beim Drucken bei eher Spezialbereichen plus Genauigkeit("Versatilität", wenn man will) plus Geschwindigkeit stark ist, "wird", Der dürfte würde ich mal behaupten für "die Zukunft gut gerüstet, aufgestellt, sein".
Mag nicht "100"% inkommen.
Aber ich würde Jetzt mal behaupten "so Grundrichtung".

Als Einzelfirma ist/wird "eher Spezialisierung" denke ich schon "wahrscheinlich eher wichtig werden". Aber für den Gesamtmarkt wird's denke ich dann auch wichtig werden Applikationen zu erschliessen.
Things, Die man mit Diesen Dingern fertigen KANN.
Die world Consumer wollen PRODUCTS, PRODUCTS, PRODUCTS.
( (Baby)"Windel"-Druck könnte schätze ich eine Besonders Lukrative, Heisse, Nische werden.)
Viel.
Und billich.

Also ich behaupte jetzt mal(Provothese): Versatilität in Kombination mit Geschwindigkeit in Kombination mit Qualität(sofern Die nicht in Erstem (schon) enthalten ist) wird Einen GROSSEN TEIL DES RENNENS ENTSCHEIDEN.

ANY Opposition??





SLM
Die hatten, meine gelesen zu haben, vor "ordentlich Kohle ins Haus zu holen".
Glaube via Anleihe soll(t?)e Das versucht werden.
Dadurch wird Diese Aktie bilanzseitig nicht preiswerter, aber Die wollen wohl noch EINIGES investieren.

p.S.
"Bionic" finde ich ein ganz, ganz Interessantes Thema.
Ohne da Jegliche "beruflich/professionelle" AHnung von zu haben.
Faszinierend.
Und inspirierend.

Mich hat Es auch mehrfach auf den Gedanken gebracht: Die "Guten(Besten?) Sachen liegen "doch oft so nah" ".

Meine Meinung von vor 2 Jahren hat sich nur verfestigt:

Was Carbon im Kunststoffbereich bereits erreicht hat

und Aurora im Metallbereich in meinen Augen erreichen wird, wird die Welt im gewissen Rahmen evt. sehr lange beherrschen. Allerdings wird diese Beherrschung auch nicht länger als 20 Jahre disruptiv andauern.

Deine Babywindeln könnten von Carbon kommen, wenn sie aus jeder Art Kunststoff wären.
Allerdings sehe ich das Ende des Kunststoffalters sich rapide nähern.
Naturmaterialien werden kommen müssen, habe davon aber noch nichts gesehen.

Deine NanocubeFasergeschichte ist WOW, erinnert mich doch an die Spinnenseide - apropos Spinnenseide-Babywindeln von Kraig, das wäre was.
98% der Kunststoffdrucker gestern sind für die Katz, weil einfach viel zu langsam, ungenau und nicht innovativ.
Drei Ausnahmen, wovon eine Carbon ist, die andere eine dt. kleinere Firma mit tollen Zahnrädern und Kugellagern aus PE und eine dritte, wo aussen Fiber innen PE das ganze 20mal fester in der Strucktur machen als PE etc. alleine, aber auch langsam und nicht wirklich inno...

Interview mit Massimo Dattilo
https://www.3dprintingmedia.network/pyrogenesis-massimo-datt…


Der vierte Zustand der Materie und warum es für die additive Fertigung so wichtig ist
PyroGenesis Additive VP, Massimo Dattilo, erläutert, wie die Plasmaexpertise des Unternehmens einen Mehrwert und Fortschritt für die globale AM-Industrie bringen wird.

Wenn es um die Plasma-Atomisierung geht, das wohl das am weitesten fortgeschrittene Verfahren in der Ti64-Pulverproduktion für die additive Fertigung ist, entwickelt sich PyroGenesis mit Sitz in Montreal zu einem wichtigen Global Player. Das Unternehmen hat die Technologie erfunden, die ursprünglich für die heutige AP & C-Lizenz lizenziert war, und ist bereit, die wachsende Nachfrage nach qualitativ hochwertigen zerstäubten Pulvern zu befriedigen, getrieben durch das Wachstum der AM-Industrie. Die Pulverproduktion bedeutet für PyroGenesis einen Wiedereinstieg in das Geschäft. Die Pulverproduktion ist einer der Geschäftsbereiche von PyroGenesis und einer der Bereiche, die ein enormes Wachstumspotenzial aufweisen. Wir hatten die Gelegenheit, mit Massimo Dattilo, dem Vizepräsidenten von PyroGenesis Additive, zu sprechen, der eine eingehende Analyse sowohl des aktuellen Unternehmens mit hochreinem Titanium als auch seiner Vision anbot. Die Zukunft könnte viele weitere reaktive Metalle und sogar hochschmelzende Metalle umfassen, mit dem Ziel einer standardisierteren, effizienteren und produktiveren globalen AM-Industrie.

Davide Sher: Wie hat sich PyroGenesis anfangs mit AM beschäftigt?
Massimo Dattilo: Vor etwa 20 Jahren haben wir ein Plasma entwickelt System zur Herstellung von hochreinem, kugelförmigem Ti64-Pulver, bevor sich die additive Fertigung zu der kommerziellen Chance entwickelt hat, die es heute ist. Zu dieser Zeit verwendeten wir das Pulver für eine militärische Anwendung. Kurz darauf kaufte eine Firma namens Stryker einen sehr schmalen Zuschnitt für eine Pulvermetallurgieanwendung. Daher verkauften wir nur einen kleinen Bruchteil unseres Pulvers. Zu dieser Zeit war auch der Bedarf an Ti64-Pulver mit hoher Reinheit gering. Daher wurde beschlossen, das Plasma-Zerstäubungssystem an eine Firma namens Raymor ( AP & C ) zu vergeben. Sie profitierten von einem exklusiven Deal, der 2012 auslief. Das bedeutet, dass wir bis 2012 vom Verkauf von Ausrüstung und Pulver ausgeschlossen waren. Seitdem sind wir wieder auf den Markt gekommen und verkaufen jetzt unser hochreines Ti64-Pulver.

DS: Warum haben Sie sich für den Verbrauchermarkt entschieden?
MD : Als wir diese wachsende Chance in AM sahen und wussten, dass PyroGenesis über ein einzigartiges Know-how in Bezug auf Plasma verfügt, erkannten wir, dass wir eine großartige Gelegenheit hatten, der Branche zusätzlichen Wert zu bieten. Insbesondere durch unser Verständnis der Geräte der Druckerhersteller und ihrer jeweiligen Pulvergrößenschnitte konnten wir zusätzliche Entwicklungen in unsere Plasma-Zerstäubungssysteme einbringen. Diese Entwicklungen ermöglichen es uns, hochreine Pulver mit gezielten Schlichten herzustellen. Dies ermöglicht uns, das zu produzieren, was unsere Kunden benötigen, und gleichzeitig den Abfall zu minimieren, was für unsere Kunden zu einem wirtschaftlicheren Produkt führt.

DS: Wie relevant ist AM im Gesamtgeschäft von PyroGenesis?
MD: AM ist für das Gesamtgeschäft von PyroGenesis von großer Bedeutung . PyroGenesis verwendet Plasma für viele Anwendungen. Eine Anwendung ist zum Beispiel unser plasma-basiertes Waste-to-Energy-System, bei dem wir Abfälle zerstören. Wir haben zwei Systeme an die US Navy verkauft. Dies spricht für unsere Plasma-Expertise. Wir verwenden Plasma auch für Bergbau- und metallurgische Anwendungen. Wir arbeiten zum Beispiel mit einem Kunden zusammen, der einen von uns entwickelten Plasmaprozess verwendet, um Quarz in einem einstufigen Prozess in hochreines Silizium umzuwandeln. Dies ist eine spielverändernde Anwendung. Eine andere Anwendung ermöglicht Kunden, die Aluminiumhütten haben, Aluminium aus Schlacken zu gewinnen, wodurch Aluminiumverluste minimiert werden. Schließlich verwenden wir Plasma, um hochreine Pulver für die AM-Industrie herzustellen. Dank unserer Erfahrung mit Plasmaprozessen können wir Pulver für die Luftfahrt-, Luftfahrt-, Biomedizin- und Automobilindustrie herstellen. Unser Ziel ist es, nicht nur hochreines Ti64 zu produzieren, sondern auch andere Materialien zu untersuchen, die vom Plasma-Atomisierungsprozess profitieren könnten. Wir sind der Meinung, dass die AM-Branche erst in den Kinderschuhen steckt, und mit unserem Know-how in der Produktion von Plasma-Atomisierungspulver wird dieser Geschäftsbereich zu einer unserer größten Wachstumsspektren. Die Nachfrage nach hochreinen Materialien wird nur wachsen, und PyroGenesis wird da sein, um die Bedürfnisse des Marktes zu erfüllen.

DS: Wie bauen Sie das Vertriebsnetz auf?
MD: Unser Team verfügt über umfassende Erfahrung in der additiven Fertigung und ein robustes Kundennetzwerk. Wir sprechen bereits mit vielen der führenden Luftfahrtunternehmen und engagieren uns auch bei biomedizinischen Unternehmen. In vielen Fällen sind wir entweder im Begriff, qualifiziert zu sein, oder haben uns als Zulieferer von Top-Playern der AM-Branche qualifiziert. Unser Ziel ist es, mit strategischen Partnern zusammenzukommen. Nicht unähnlich zu dem, was wir mit unserem Geschäftsbereich Drosrite TM gemacht haben .

DS: Welches sind die spezifischen Vorteile Ihrer Technologie in der Pulverherstellung sowie in Bezug auf Pulverqualität und -eigenschaften?
MD: Unser Ausgangsmaterial ist ein Draht. Mit Plasma schmelzen und zerstäuben wir den Draht in einem Schritt zu feinen Partikeln. Dieser einstufige Prozess ist einzigartig für die Plasma-Atomisierung. Im geschmolzenen Zustand fallen die Pulverpartikel ab und kondensieren allmählich zu kugelförmigen Partikeln. Die inerte und saubere Umgebung unseres Reaktors, in der das Pulver kondensiert und gesammelt wird, ermöglicht die Herstellung von hochreinen Materialien mit minimaler Sauerstoffaufnahme. Dies ist besonders wichtig für reaktive Materialien wie Ti64 und vor allem, wenn Sie die feinen Partikelgrößen berücksichtigen, die für die selektiven Laserschmelzprozesse erforderlich sind. Darüber hinaus ermöglicht unser Plasma-Zerstäubungsverfahren die Herstellung von Schüttgütern mit geringer Größe, so dass der Großteil unseres produzierten Pulvers für AM geeignet ist. Heute haben wir eine eigene Anlage zur Herstellung von Ti64. In dieser Anlage werden keine anderen Materialien hergestellt, um das Risiko einer Kreuzkontamination auszuschließen. In der Zukunft werden wir wahrscheinlich zusätzliche Anlagen bauen, um den Bedarf an zusätzlichen Materialien zu decken. Ein zusätzlicher Vorteil der Plasma-Atomisierung ist, dass wir viel weniger Argongas als Gas-Atomizer verwenden. Wir können das Argon auch in hohem Maße recyceln, dh wir minimieren die Menge an frischem Argon, die während des Produktionsprozesses erforderlich ist.

DS: Was sind die Hauptunterschiede zwischen Plasma und gaszerstäubtem Pulver?
MD : Die durch Plasma-Zerstäubung hergestellten Pulver sind ideal für AM. Insbesondere ist das Pulver sehr kugelförmig, hat eine geringe bis keine innere Porosität und nur wenige Satelliten. Dies führt zusammen mit der ausgezeichneten Teilchengrößenverteilung zu einem Pulver, das eine hohe Dichte aufweist und ein hohes Fließvermögen aufweist. Dritte haben eine Röntgenanalyse mit unserem Pulver durchgeführt und festgestellt, dass unser Pulver einen höheren Grad an Sphärizität, Dichte und Reinheit aufweist als ein gasatomisiertes Pulver. Infolgedessen weisen Teile, die mit plasma-zerstäubten Pulvern bedruckt sind, eine geringere innere Porosität auf und sind dichter als diejenigen, die mit gaszerstäubten Pulvern hergestellt werden.


DS: Heute gehören EBM-Systeme zu den größten Anwendern von Ti64. Wie können Sie effektiv mit AP & C konkurrieren, dem ersten Parteielieferanten?
MD : Als GE Arcam / AP & C erwarb, störte es die Lieferkette. Die AM-Industrie braucht für das Wachstum eine robuste Lieferkette. Große industrielle Anwender benötigen mindestens zwei qualifizierte Pulverlieferanten, die idealerweise mit derselben Technologie hergestellt werden, um das Risiko der Lieferkette zu minimieren. Unsere Pulver stehen im direkten Wettbewerb mit AP & C und bieten Kunden die Möglichkeit, ihre Lagerbestände effektiver zu verwalten.
DS: Wie fühlen Sie sich, wenn Sie Ihre Pulver für Bindemittel-Spritzverfahren verwenden?
MD: PyroGenesis zeichnet sich durch die Herstellung von hochreinen, sehr feinen, reaktiven Pulvern wie Ti64 aus. Dies schließt den Größenbereich von 5 um bis 25 um ein, der von der Mehrzahl der Bindemittel-Spritzverfahren verwendet wird. Mit unserem Verfahren können wir hochreine Pulver für Bindemittelstrahlprozesse, selektive Laserschmelzverfahren, Elektronenstrahlverfahren und andere liefern. Wir sorgen für alle AM-Prozesse.

DS: Welcher dieser Prozesse birgt Ihrer Meinung nach das größte Potenzial?
MD: Ich mag es, AM-Drucker mit Küchenmessern zu vergleichen. Jedes Messer hat seinen Zweck. Sie könnten zum Beispiel ein Steakmesser, ein Buttermesser und ein Brotmesser haben. Jede AM-Druckertechnologie erfüllt spezifische Aufgaben. Um auf die Messer-Analogie zurückzugreifen, hat jede AM-Druckertechnologie ihre eigenen Stärken und Schwächen. Sie konkurrieren nicht notwendigerweise miteinander, sind jedoch eher komplementär. Die Luft- und Raumfahrtindustrie und die biomedizinische Industrie benötigen Ti64-Pulver aufgrund ihres geringen Gewichts und / oder ihrer Biokompatibilität. Heute konzentrieren wir uns auf Technologien, die Ti64 verwenden, aber in Zukunft werden wir uns bei wachsender Nachfrage auf so genannte Massenmaterialien wie Stahllegierungen ausdehnen, die weniger kosten und in der Automobilindustrie üblicher sind . Plasmagestäubte Stahllegierungspulver haben unglaubliche Eigenschaften, sie sind jedoch unerschwinglich. Unser Plasma-Atomisierungssystem wird weiter verbessert, und es ist denkbar, dass diese Materialien in naher Zukunft in unser Standardangebot aufgenommen werden.

DS: Wie groß ist PyroGenesis heute?
MD: Heute haben wir etwa 80 Mitarbeiter und wachsen schnell. Unser Hauptsitz befindet sich in Montreal, Kanada, jedoch haben wir eine globale Reichweite mit Partnerschaften in Asien und Europa.

DS: Sind Sie überhaupt besorgt über die Konkurrenz aus China?
MD: Es gibt Wettbewerb aus China, aber es sind hauptsächlich Unternehmen, die Gas zerstäubtes Pulver anbieten. Es gib
