Developed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, solid phase processing, or SPP, is an emerging approach used to produce a range of metal and multi-material products. This process often improves the base material’s properties. SPP technologies hold the potential to decrease the energy intensity and carbon footprint of manufacturing and deliver higher-performing components, all at a lower cost.
