PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX: PYR) (NASDAQ: PYR) (FRA: 8PY), a high-tech company (hereinafter referred to as the “Company” or “PyroGenesis”), that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes advanced plasma processes, high quality plasma atomized metal powder for 3D printing and additive manufacturing, and sustainable solutions which are geared to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG), is pleased to announce today that, further to its press release dated July 18th, 2022 and Outlook section of its Q2 2022 Financial Results press release, a tier one North American global aerospace company (the “Client”) will, in September, be conducting an in-person powder production audit at PyroGenesis’ metal powder production facility in Montreal, a significant step in a previously announced qualification agreement.

“After many months of document review and process improvements, we are now proud and honored to be showcasing our facility, our staff, and our groundbreaking process to this major international corporation – a legendary company who continues to be a world leader in design, engineering, and manufacturing of airplanes and aerospace technology,” said Mr. P. Peter Pascali, CEO and Chair of PyroGenesis. “We have all worked extremely hard to reach this point. In our opinion, this is one of the most important and critical steps in our powder production qualification.”

This on-site, in-person powder production audit is part of the final phase of the qualification process which has spanned over 18 months of investigative rigor by the Client. This portion of the audit will consist mainly of a facilities and operations assessment, during which PyroGenesis’ technicians and operators will demonstrate the reliability of the Company’s cutting-edge metal powder production facility and work instruction processes. The in-person audit is formally scheduled to take place in September. The exact date will not be disclosed for confidentiality reasons.

Upon successful completion of this in-person audit, the last step will include providing final powder samples to test specific mechanical and chemical properties. Once all steps are completed and testing is finished, PyroGenesis’ process will be locked down and ready to receive commercial orders; no further changes will be allowed. Furthermore, the Client will certify the company's metal powders for use by the customer and its component suppliers. The formal and methodical process with this leading aerospace company is anticipated to achieve final approval towards the end of this year.

“As we have stated in the past, given our unique manufacturing process that improves exponentially on the world’s existing leading metal powder production process – which we invented 25 years ago – using high temperature plasma atomization, we expect to be in a position to capture a significant share of the overall titanium powder market,” said Mr. Massimo Dattilo, VP, PyroGenesis Additive. “We are confident that our NexGen metal powder production system, a single-step process that is unique in that it uses wire as a direct feedstock for significant gains in production speed and particle size control, will meet or surpass Client expectations, both over the next two weeks during the on-site audit, and beyond.”

Separately, as previously announced, the company continues to pursue a strategy to build and operate a metal powder manufacturing facility in Europe to address the anticipated parallel growth in the European market. Management has already initiated serious discussions with potential partners and is actively analyzing this opportunity. The Company will provide more information on this development as events develop.
