MolyWorks Materials Corporation, Los Gatos, California, USA, is expanding its global footprint with the establishment of a new metal foundry in Singapore to support the production of low-carbon metal powders and the development of new alloys, reports Singapore Times.

Founded in 2015, MolyWorks Materials has developed a patented, compact recycling foundry and technology that recycles waste metals into raw materials for high-purity, sustainable powders suitable for Additive Manufacturing. To date, the company has successfully upcycled over twenty-five alloys.

The Singapore-based facility will serve as the company’s Asia-Pacific R&D and production hub, offering a wide range of metal powders, including small batches for custom alloys and R&D, and high-volume production for large-scale industrial applications. The facility is equipped with laboratories to support powder characterisation and testing services.

“MolyWorks is very pleased to have found its own metal upcycled foundry in Singapore to provide a first source of sustainable metal powders for local businesses and the entire region,” stated Phil Ward, CEO of MolyWorks. “With strong interest and support from industry and the Singapore government, this new local capability will help reduce metal waste while reducing carbon and improving the sustainability of the country’s metal parts production over time. We expect it to play an increasingly important role over time.”

Lionel Lim, VP of Technical Hardware and Equipment at the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), added, “MolyWorks’ move to use Singapore as a location to enhance its sustainable metal powder production for the region shows how a company can combine growth and environmental protection goals. Molyworks is excited about the new foundry’s role in partnering with the local Additive Manufacturing ecosystem to develop raw metal alloys for industrial use. This is timely, as we have a lot of work to do.”
