Energy Department Selects Four Projects for High Performance Computing for Manufacturing in Steel and Aluminum Production
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in partnership with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), announced nearly $1.2 million for four new projects to support American steel and aluminum manufacturers in improving energy efficiency, increasing productivity, and accelerating manufacturing innovation.
Manufacturing accounts for over half of the environmental impact and one-fifth of the annual energy consumption in the U.S. Reducing that energy drain is the goal of ASTM’s E3012-16 international standard. If you can put E3012-16 to work to reduce manufacturing’s footprint, you could be a big winner.
