Here at LCM, we are continuously searching to secure a sustainable and independent supply chain.

We participate in a diverse range of European and UK funded projects focussed on product and process development. These projects allow LCM to look forward into future technologies and ensure that we continue to be an active participant in the European academic, research and development communities.

These projects specifically include work on the development of sustainable European sources of rare earths, extraction and recycling of rare earths, new materials for hydrogen storage systems and development of new methods for the production of Scandium-Aluminium alloys for aerospace applications.

In addition to various projects, LCM has a dedicated technical presence to oversee our development project portfolio, improve existing products and processes and strengthen core skills to allow us to expand into new product areas including titanium alloys and superalloys.
