Commercial low-carbon titanium production

The company says its ground-breaking titanium processing technologies will facilitate the global transition towards a closed-loop, low-to-zero carbon, resource efficient and socially inclusive green economy, with the metal being a key material for advanced industries including aerospace, consumer electronics, space exploration and defense.

And IperionX co-founder and CEO Anastasios Arima says with Symonds’ skilled leadership across sales, government relations, finance and business development, the company “is well positioned for rapid growth.”

“Leading companies in the automotive, consumer electronics and luxury goods sectors are seeking to rapidly develop zero carbon supply chains and maximize their usage of circular materials.

“IperionX provides the only commercially available circular, low-carbon titanium production process.”
