EPMA launches R&D project on sustainability of press & sinter powder metallurgy

The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA), along with consulting companies PM Solutions and PM Consulting, have announced a new R&D project, the Life Cycle Assessment for Low Alloy PM Steel (LCA-LAPS) Club Project, which will quantify the environmental sustainability of press & sinter Powder Metallurgy. The objective of the twelve-month project will be to quantify the life cycle analysis for a high-volume press & sinter material (low-alloy steel from water atomised powders) in order to make a direct comparison to competing technologies possible, with parts subdivided into three weight classes (small, medium, and large). The project will also produce individual company and site reports for the powder and parts producers participating.
