SUPREME consortium reports on plans for Powder Metallurgy process optimisation

SUPREME is an EU funded project aimed at optimising Powder Metallurgy processes throughout the supply chain. Consisting of a consortium of seventeen partners from eight countries, the three-year project was launched in September 2017 with an EU contribution of €8 million.

By offering more integrated, flexible and sustainable processes for powder manufacturing and metallic parts fabrication, the project is looking to enable the reduction of raw material resources (minerals, metal powder, gas and water) while improving energy efficiency.

At a review meeting, held January 16-17, 2018 at CEA in Grenoble, France, partners were asked to review proposed value chains describing a baseline and a final SUPREME process to build five demonstrators in aeronautics, mould inserts, cutting tools, medical implant and automotive value chains. The session was aimed at sharing a common view on value chains and helped partners to understand the environmental KPI’s on resource and energy efficiency, production rates and CO2 emissions.
