  1. STTR Phase I: Continuous Production and Collection of Magnesium via Carbothermal Reduction

    SBC: Big Blue Technologies LLC            Topic: MN

    This STTR Phase I project addresses the problem of embedded energy in the manufacture of magnesium metal for use in vehicle light-weighting. Improving fuel economy by incorporation of light metals, especially magnesium, does not save on total lifecycle energy consumed if the magnesium was produced using conventional methods. The most energy efficient production method known is a process technology ...
