Title: Innovative Die Material and Lubrication Strategies for Clean and Energy Conserving Forging Technologies

Abstract

The objective of this project was to develop and implement innovative die material and surface coating strategies such as composite dies and lubricated coatings to increase die lives and to reduce environmental pollution. In this project approaches and software were developed for die life optimization and optimal design of lubrication systems for hot forging. In addition, LENS applied nickel-aluminide coatings were developed and validated in the industrial environment for significant improvements in die life.

  • The Innovative Control Technology Advisory Panel (ICTAP) in its first meeting September 30, 1987, received a series of information briefings on project selection criteria that have been used in the Clean Coal Technology Program (CCTP) or have been proposed by the public, by the Congress or by the Special Envoys for Acid Rain. The panel then discussed a series of factors that might be considered in the Department of Energy's development of project selection criteria for the anticipated first projects solicitation of the Innovative Control Technologies Program. After the discussion at the meeting of the panel, a number of panelmore » members provided written suggestions to be incorporated into this report and that were made available to all panel members. This report reflects the panel member proposals in the meeting and those subsequently made in writing. Given factors to be considered: no limitation on project location in US; new, retrofit, and repower demo projects; and minimum 50% non-federal cost-sharing. Other factors: technologies which in their commercial form would have the potential to reduce emissions in the absence of new legislation; extent of project financing obtained; ability of the proposer to design, build, and operate the project; ability and desire of the proposer or his team members to commercialize the technology; firm evidence of access to the site of the demonstration; evidence of the legal entity to carry out the project; readiness of the technology to be demonstrated; and technology replication.« less
  • Fact sheet describes NREL's work on a desiccant enhanced evaporative air conditioner (DEVap) that uses 90% less electricity than traditional air conditioning units.
  • The objective of this project is to demonstrate on a commercial scale several innovative applications of cost-reducing technology to the Chiyoda Thoroughbred-121 (CT-121) process. CT-121 is a second generation flue gas desulfurization (FGD) process which is considered by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and Southern Company Services (SCS) to be one of the most reliable and lowest cost FGD options for high-sulfur coal-fired utility boiler applications. Demonstrations of the innovative design approaches will further reduce the cost and provide a clear advantage to CT121 relative to competing technology.

  • The Innovative Clean Technologies Case Studies contained herein are the product of the 'Pollution Prevention by and for Small Business' Program (P2SB). The P2SB was an outreach program directed to small businesses that had developed innovative concepts for pollution prevention in their industries. The P2SB focused on high-risk concepts without emphasis on media or industry in order to provide an open program where ground-breaking concepts were given a fair opportunity. The P2SB provided awards of up to $25,000 to assist small businesses for conducting their own demonstrations of pollution prevention techniques and technologies and for advancing their products towards amore » practical stage. In its second year, the P2SB funded projects in a variety of industries across the nation. The publication provides a history of the P2SB and lists case histories of the projects funded in the second year.« less
