OIT Times: Energy Efficiency of Key Suppliers Targeted
January 2, 2002
OIT has identified seven industries that provide essential support to the energy-intensive Industries of the Future. These seven industries include forging, heat treating, welding, powder metallurgy and particulate materials, carbon products, process heating, and advanced ceramics.
In 2001, OIT awarded five R&D projects to help these industries become more energy efficient. Two projects focus on the heat treating industry, two on the forging industry, and one on the welding industry. All of the R&D will result in cleaner and more energy-efficient technologies that will have carryover benefits for the nine ndustries of the Future.br>
