University of Colorado - Carbothermal Reduction Process for Producing Magnesium Metal Using a Reduced Pressure Hybrid Solar/Electric Reactor
CX(s) Applied: B3.6
Date: 12/17/2013
Location(s): Colorado
Offices(s): Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy

The University of Colorado proposes to conduct small-scale, in-lab, research and development activities for a hybrid concentrated solar/electric reactor to produce magnesium metal. The proposed activities aim to demonstrate the production of magnesium metals at reduced energy consumption, lower cost, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions than conventional production.
