Pennsylvania’s Industries of the Future initiative provides
assistance primarily to 3 target industrial sectors – mining,
metal casting, and the aluminum industry. The initiative will
- Improve competitiveness and profitability
through improved energy efficiency, environmental performance
- Maximize the efficient use of materials
to minimize losses that lower value to customers and reduce
profit and reinvestment.
- Reduce consumption of natural resources by lowering
risks associated with testing new materials and/or energy efficient
technologies and processes.
- Form partnerships with similar industries,
related service providers, and the PA Department of Environmental
Pennsylvania Industries of the Future targeted
for participation in the state-level IOF program include:
Mining, Metal Casting,
Pennsylvania has quality educational and research institutions,
in addition to many private corporations, that participate in
research and development programs. Many of these programs address
the goals and objectives identified by the National Industries
of the Future “Roadmaps and Visions”.
Pennsylvania has a significant number of small to medium-sized
manufacturing facilities that can utilize and need basic technical
assistance in the areas of energy efficiency and waste minimization.
These facilities are candidates for the services provided by
OIT's Industrial Assessment Centers.
