MONTREAL, Dec. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR) (OTCQB: PYRNF), a TSX Venture 50® high-tech company, (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis") a Company that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes plasma atomized metal powder, plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch products, is pleased to announce today that it received a purchase order to provide specialty metal powder from a government entity (the “Client”), the name, origin, amount, and type of powder are not permitted to be disclosed.
This order will require PyroGenesis to produce specialty reactive metal powder using its plasma atomization expertise. The Client intends to qualify this powder for undisclosed purposes.
First delivery is expected to occur Q1 2019. It is expected that, upon successful qualification, follow-on orders would be anticipated.
“Although small, under 1 ton, this commercial order reinforces the fact that we are, once again, the go-to Company for an entity that has, at its fingertips, many options. Not only does this opportunity allows us to expand our powder offerings but it also creates a potentially high value niche market, which, once again, highlights our competitive advantages,” said Mr. P.
