Technikon's Air Emissions Research

In 2000, KERAMIDA's base expanded as the co-founder and co-owner of Technikon LLC, a California Research and Development Company formed to privatize a successful Department of Defense Research Program, the Casting Emissions Reduction Program (CERP).

The knowledge KERAMIDA gains through its collaboration with Technikon, and its access to Technikon's research, becomes a priceless asset to our clients. Technikon researches emission measurement methods and assesses and validates reductions of air emissions through Green Manufacturing, accomplished through the use of alternative materials and processes.

To date, Technikon and KERAMIDA have published over 130 research papers based on the research conducted at Technikon covering a wide range of air topics, including:

Foundry process emissions
  • Melting furnaces
  • Pouring, cooling and shakeout
  • Core make emissions
Process variability and its effect
on HAP emissions

HAP emissions stack testing
  • Procedural refinements
  • Repeatability studies
2.5 Particulate emission research
  • Relationship between particulate emissions and condensable particulate emissions
  • Comparisons between particulate emission protocols
Volatile organic emissions
  • Emission variability
  • Emission testing protocols
Energy Studies

The effect of process changes on emissions has been a focus of several projects undertaken at Technikon, as it is an area not well understood by most regulators, researchers and consultants. Even though Technikon's research had focused on metal casting, a better understanding of the interrelationships amongst process variability, air emissions, and stack testing protocols benefits numerous other industrial sectors.

Technikon has expanded and is now focused on light metals manufacturing research, applications of advanced manufacturing methods, and biomass to energy technology development and validation.     |
