6K Additive Receives Third-Party Recycled Content Certification from Sustainability Verification Leader SCS Global Services

The certification recognizes 6K Additive’s commitment to producing environmentally conscious titanium powder for additive manufacturing.

6K Additive, a division of 6K Inc. and leader in the sustainable production of materials for additive manufacturing and metal alloys, announced today that its titanium powder (Ti-6AL-4V) has been independently certified by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Global Services, a global third-party auditing and certification organization, for achieving a minimum 95% post-consumer recycled titanium content.

The SCS Recycled Content Certification evaluates products made from pre-consumer or post-consumer material diverted from the waste stream. This certification measures the percentage of recycled content for the purpose of making an accurate claim in the marketplace.

“We are thrilled that our commitment to sustainability has been recognized by a leading organization such as SCS Global Services through their certification process. We’re seeing a big increase from customers asking for not only data, but third-party validation from their suppliers regarding sustainability and having a recognized certification from a global sustainability organization like SCS is exactly the type of confirmation they are seeking,” said Frank Roberts, President of 6K Additive. “Our proprietary technology for processing titanium and refractory metals at scale is a benefit to our customers and the environment by recycling scrap streams back into premium powders.”

6K Additive is the world’s first producer of AM powder made from sustainable sources and offers a full suite of premium powder, including nickel, titanium, copper, stainless steel, aluminum alloys, and refractory metals such as tungsten, niobium, and rhenium. The company leverages its UniMelt® production-scale microwave plasma process to precisely spheroidize metal powders while controlling the chemistry and porosity of the final product with zero contamination and high throughput production capabilities. Last year the company released results from an LCA study conducted by Foresight Management comparing the environmental impact of 6K’s UniMelt microwave plasma technology to current atomization technologies to produce metal powders. The results showed reductions of 90% in energy usage and carbon emissions for its nickel-based alloys and a 75% reduction for its titanium alloys.
