Innovative coatings for energy-intensive industries
The equipment used in energy-intensive industries is pushed to the limit, but improvement of current and future equipment is essential to increase production efficiency, component lifetime and reduce environmental impact. Innovation of the materials is the key. The EU-funded FORGE project will develop novel coatings of compositionally complex alloys and ceramics, combining machine learning models, thermodynamic calculations, and high-throughput experiments. FORGE will demonstrate these coatings on processes such as CO2-capture, waste heat recovery, components undergoing wear and in kilns, defying the acting degradation forces, and assuring coating effectiveness with smart monitoring of their deterioration. FORGE aims to minimise the overall capital and operative expenses especially in steelmaking, aluminium, tiles and cement industries.
