Thu, 08 April, 2021

The FORGE project was kicked-off in November 2020 and is led by a consortium of thirteen partners across UK and Europe.

The consortium is pleased to announce the publication of the first issue of FORGE Newsletter. Click here and find out more about:

FAILURE MODES AND EFFECTS ANALYSIS TO DETERMINE FORGE TARGET

The FORGE project aims to create compositionally complex materials (CCM) that will extend the lifetime of severely damaged components of energy-intensive industries, both for current production and future CO2-saving processes. Identifying the most critical components, i.e the ones particularly vulnerable to harsh operating environments and that incur significant costs associated with their maintenance and replacement, is therefore an essential task under this perspective.

FORGE WORKFLOWS TOWARD VALIDATION OF MATERIALS AND COATINGS

The workflow that FORGE has defined, will bring the partners in a journey from theoretical material modelling to real industrial application. FORGE covers all the steps in between, and planned iterative cross-validations of its results to select down the most reliably performing coatings. READ MORE

FORGE Project Gets Underway to Develop Novel Coatings

Energy intensive industries struggle to meet the ambitious targets that the EU is adopting with the Green Deal and, in many cases, this is due to the lack of material solutions that enable them to work with higher efficiency or without losing positions in a competitive market. FORGE tackles this issue with an ambitious yet pragmatic investigation approach of the new class of compositionally complex materials, and focuses their application in the form of coatings. READ MORE
