WellMet 2050 - Taking our metal temperature

Year: 
2011

Taking our metal temperatureExisting process chains for producing components in steel and aluminium are typically long, spread over multiple locations, and involve many thermal cycles.

Can we streamline fabrication?

WellMet2050 investigated novel methods of meeting global carbon emissions targets for steel and aluminium that go beyond improving process efficiency by reconsidering the entire product lifecycle. Based in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge, the five–year project was backed by £1.5m of government funding through the EPSRC Leadership Fellowship scheme and a consortium of more than twenty companies, partner universities and leading academics.
