New materials fuel the creation engine that powers development of innovative products. Building upon a rich 60-year history in materials science, ORNL is discovering and developing advanced materials that will help reinvigorate existing manufacturing industries and result in creative new products. Stronger, more corrosion-resistant and lower cost steel alloys are being developed and commercialized to enable higher temperature and more energy-efficient operation in a variety of energy and industrial applications. New carbon materials are enabling cleanup of contaminated water produced while drilling to release vast new natural gas resources. ORNL is developing affordable new surface treatments and coating materials with wear and corrosion performance four to eight times that of heat-treated steels.

Storing Energy

Effective deployment of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar requires energy storage to overcome their intermittent nature. Advanced batteries will be critical to reducing the consumption of fossil fuels for transportation. ORNL’s unparalleled expertise and capabilities in materials characterization and analysis are leading the development of a new generation of batteries that can store energy generated by solar panels, wind turbines, and electric cars.

Organization Profile Overview

New manufacturing technologies are needed to enable companies to rapidly produce the energy-efficient, competitively priced, high-quality products that will rejuvenate U.S. manufacturing. Innovative manufacturing concepts will provide critical energy and environmental improvements to increase the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturing industries.
