Continuum Powders, based in Los Gatos, California, USA, has signed contracts with Priority Power and AirGas to increase the level of decarbonisation and continue to push the boundaries of what it believes powder suppliers should aim to achieve in the market.
Priority Power, with headquarters in Arlington, Texas, USA, will provide Continuum Powders with 100% renewable electricity sourced from hydropower.
AirGas, headquartered in Radnor, is also under contract with the company and will be providing argon gas that is certified to be made with 99.8% renewable green energy, further reducing the company’s carbon footprint.

When the entire combination of the new renewable energy sources are added with the proprietary process from Continuum Powders, the company anticipated a total energy consumption of nearly zero.
“It’s one thing to claim to be ‘green’ or use green energy,” stated Phil Ward, Chief Executive Officer of Continuum Powders. “It’s a completely different thing to actually commit to the movement and offer customers a viable and truly transparent, sustainable offering that has a real and definable impact on their own sustainability and decarbonisation projects. Continuum Powders is the only metal powders company today that is actively reducing its carbon footprint in every step of the supply chain as a goal to reach net-zero carbon intensity.”
