Metalcasting Industry Consumption
Energy-Saving Melting and Revert Reduction Technology (E-SMARRT) is a balanced portfolio of tasks to address energy-saving opportunities in the metalcasting industry, including Improvements in Melting Efficiency; Innovative Casting Processes for Yield Improvement/ Revert Reduction; Instrumentation and Control Improvement; and Material Properties for Casting or Tooling Design Improvement.  This portfolio will significantly reduce metalcasting process energy consumption while improving important capabilities of castings. 

E-SMARRT R&D tasks feature low-threshold energy efficiency improvements that are attractive to the domestic industry because they do not require major capital investment.  Maximum energy savings from both “as is” and emerging environments from these tasks is expected to reduce metalcasting energy consumption by 14% over the course of 10 years.

The E-SMARRT project provides unique access to the metalcasting industry.  Three association partners represent the majority of the U.S. metalcasting industry.  E-SMARRT’s researchers have close, long-standing relationships with “early adopting” industry partners.  E-SMARRT will leverage the existing Cast Metal Coalition (CMC) to provide early and broad deployment.  This research portfolio has been developed by industry and presents an innovative project that addresses requirements identified in the Metalcasting Vision 2002 and resulting Technology Roadmap.
