Our attention was diverted from environmental issues in the mid-1970s by the development of the so-called “energy crisis,” a supply/demand trauma attributable to the price escalation by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), a near-monopolistic trade organization. As we explored alternative energy sources, new and improved materials came to the forefront. 3 Partnership for New-Generation Vehicles widely applicable materials—Challenges Priority of challenges High Aluminum Feedstock cost Magnesium Feedstock cost Polymer composite components Low-cost carbon fiber Polymer composite body High-volume manufacturing High-temperature alloy Medium Casting Forming Joining Recycling Low High-volume manufacturing Analytical design In-service inspection Weight-reduction concepts Joining Analytical design In-service inspection Recycling Recycling Lightweight technology (incremental) Improved design and manufacturing Properties in service Steel Low-cost carbon fiber Properties in service Machining Recycling Extrusion materials costs or improvements in conversion efficiencies.

However, it should be clear from earlier remarks that we have mostly been gathering low-hanging fruit. If we are to really achieve a worldwide sustainable manufacturing paradigm, the hardest work is ahead. Some of that work will be technical, but much will be organizational. We have a pretty good track record on the technical agendas that do not need 30 / Aluminum Recycling and Processing for Energy Conservation and Sustainability any further discussion here. The organizational agenda is a major concern and should be addressed in two arenas—government and professional societies.

It represents a system that may certainly better be characterized as a collection rather than an organization. And yet, as we approach such issues as complex as sustainability, defining the proper role for the federal government demands an organized approach. In the late 1990s, such a cross-agency involvement was displayed in the committee efforts that led to the policy positions on enviromental issues cited earlier and to more detailed efforts focused on research and on information about materials flows.
