Metalcasting industry hosts new DOE official. (Washington Alert).

The newly appointed director of the U.S. Dept. of Energy's (DOE) Office of Industrial Technologies, Buddy Garland, met with leaders of the Cast Metals Coalition (CMC) and toured three Wisconsin metalcasting facilities on June 7. In his new position, Garland oversees the Metalcasting Industries of the Future program, the joint DOE-CMC effort to fund energy efficiency research at more than 25 universities and laboratories.

CMC leaders used the tours as an opportunity to brief Garland on industry demographics and markets, discuss current and future challenges, and highlight the benefits of DOE-CMC-sponsored research. In 2001, AFS and other CMC members secured $5.3 million for this program from Congress.
