Advanced Melting Technologies Study Now Available
December 7, 2005
The new study, Advanced Melting Technologies: Energy Saving Concepts and Opportunities for the Metal Casting Industry, is now available on the Metal Casting Industry of the Future website. This study explores the "Grand Challenge" or breakthrough opportunities that might dramatically reduce melting energy in the metal casting industry and identifies potential energy-saving R&D areas.
The study examines current and emerging melting technologies in the metal casting industry, along with experimental technologies, retrofits for existing systems, and best practices. The study will be used as a reference for the Industrial Technologies Program's (ITP) Metal Casting subprogram in pursuing high-value R&D opportunities for enhancing energy efficiency of the metal casting industry.
