Water Based Economy
“Water Based Economy” (LMCO Presentation – Oct. 28 PGS Workshop)
o How earth-based tech developments can interact with space targeted tech developments.
Recycle and Reuse Technologies
Create a community of interest on the nexus of earth based “Recycle and Reuse technologies” and space targeted recycle and reuse technologies
o Identify potential leads and participants
Sustainable Launch Operations
Establish a collaborative community of interest on “Sustainable Launch Operations”.
o Commercial companies are encouraged to get involved with sharing best practices and challenges
PGS PROJECT COLLABORATION VISION:
Improve life through environmentally friendly approaches
PGS PROJECT COLLABORATION MISSION:
Identify and approaches through collaborative activities that enhances readiness and reduces risk while minimizing duplication and associated costs
Sustainment Issues / Challenges (EXAMPLES):
PGS Collaboration Project Solutions:
PGS utilizes an established process approach successful in a number of instances that worked well. This includes agreed upon test criteria and reports that lead to potential process and standards changes.
Previous Collaboration Projects collaborated with United States and International Government Agencies, corporations, and academia.
Aliphatic Iso Urethanes Replacement on Structural Steel
Demonstrate and validate alternatives to isocyanate polyurethanes for protecting infrastructure and support equipment. Validate environmentally preferable alternatives to isocyanate urethane coatings for corrosion protection of structural steel.
Depainting Pollution Prevention Opportunity Assessment
Conduct an environmental opportunity assessment of the current depainting activities and make recommendations for alternative depainting technologies to help limit particulate emissions, reduce waste, and increase worker efficiency.
Green Roof Storm Water Management
Supplement the recent green roof installed atop building with instrumentation (soil moisture, runoff) to assess green roof performance.
Hexavalent Chrome Free Coatings for Electronics
Test hexavalent chrome free coatings for use in electronic housings, fixtures, chassis and attachments. Testing encompassed a coatings ability to resist corrosion as well as determine EMI/RFI properties. Beach site corrosion testing incorporated as well to test in high corrosive Oceanside area.
Laser Coating Removal for Ground Support Equipment (GSE)
Demonstrate one or more portable laser technologies for use on Ground Support Equipment (GSE).
Evaluation of Spent Blast Media as an Alternative Aggregate in Concrete Applications
Demonstration and evaluation of viability of diverting select non-hazardous spent blast media as an alternative aggregate in specific concrete applications to help meet waste diversion requirements of Executive Order 13514 Sections 2(e) (ii) (iii) and (h).
