Process for obtaining metallic sponges from leftover mill scale in laminating processes.
What we offer:
A Research Group with expertise in Technology Powder has developed and patented a simple and inexpensive procedure that takes full advantage the leftover mill scale in lamination processes of steel industry. The process gets steel sponges, and more specifically iron sponge powder, which is a useful starting material in various applications such as manufacturing of sintered steel, magnets, components for electric motors, etc.
Raw material cheap and available because it is leftover from lamination processes.
Simple procedure that reduces the overall time and associated costs.
Avoid transport, storage, treatment and monitoring of waste, and associated costs.
Positive social and environmental impact, because leftover mill scale now goes to landfills.
What are we looking for:
Licence Agreement with Companies interested in the industrialization of this technology for subsequent commercialization.
