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.
|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).|
