In many of the industries where process improvement is most likely to be of greatest impact, such as casting, coatings, and specialty alloys, the disaggregated nature of the business and the small size of most companies make research difficult to do and unlikely to pay off in the near term. Regulations intended to force Chapter 2: Sustainability—The Materials Role / 21 cleaner processing in these industries may have the undesirable alternative of forcing the companies to locate off-shore, with a consequent loss of jobs to the United States and no net improvement in the world’s environmental position.

While higher performance may translate into higher fuel efficiency with positive environmental implications, this was clearly not the driver. As DoD procurement needs decrease, we are finding them less ready to invest in such costly and time-consuming efforts as new materials development, and few of our industrial concerns can capture enough economic benefit to justify private sector investment. 15). As DoD disappears from the picture, will DoE fill the void, and can we expect the motivation for energy reduction, coupled with the desire for sustainability, to achieve a substantial new investment by that agency?

Most visible to us as scientists and engineers has been evaluated technical data such as thermodynamic, crystallographic, or materials properties, which allows the scientific enterprise to proceed with common basis for quantification. One concern in this presentation is with another broad arena of data: data on materials flow. When we think of 28 / Aluminum Recycling and Processing for Energy Conservation and Sustainability the materials cycle, it is usually in a qualitative sense, but a small, growing number of our colleagues are beginning to look at the full life cycle of particular materials in a quantitative sense.
