Canada’s CVMR Corporation (CVMR) and AREVA Federal Services LLC (AFS), a US subsidiary of AREVA, have announced an alliance for the deployment of metal powder production, refining and manufacturing plants in the United States.

It is stated that the plants will position CVMR as the industry leader for powdered metal production based on their proprietary systems and technology. The projects will include research and production facilities and balance of plant infrastructure.

CVMR’s vapour metallurgy processes and technologies have been developed over 28 years and are claimed to offer highly cost effective and environmentally neutral powder production. A large portion of the US plant will be dedicated to the production of metal powders used in Additive Manufacturing, graphite and graphene processing.

AFS will provide engineering, procurement and construction management services under the direction of CVMR. The company will start the industrial production plant conceptual design and cost estimate in 2014 with early completion in first quarter 2015. “The resources of AFS are complementary to the rapid development of our projects and expeditious delivery of advanced materials to industry,” stated Kamran M Khozan, Chairman and CEO of CVMR Corporation.

CVMR will develop the plants as part of a global initiative for fully integrated metal extraction, refining and manufacturing operations. The company is also reported to be developing other metal production facilities around the world.
