No process was mentioned for Anaconda Nickel. NEW TECHNOLOGY The search for new and better efficient magnesium production is being carried on by major companies and small private research firms. Government sponsored programs can be found in most of the industrialized countries. Any researchers with a sound idea and the ability to present this idea will find funding easier now than ever before . There is great need for a simpler and more efficient electrolytic process and there are a large number of very talented technicians and scientists working on the problems.

Magnesium offers 33% weight savings versus aluminum and a 50% weight savings versus steel. Unfortunately the aforementioned drivers are being minimized by the global downturn and losses experienced by the industry. Also of note is the incidence of material reversal wherein immediate past periods of high magnesium prices applications were lost to competing materials. Reversal back is typically not a quick endeavor. Current and potential applications are noted. (Figure 4). Body Structures Instrument Panel Beams Radiator Supports Seat Frames Center Consoles Steering Column Brackets Steering Wheel Armatures Front of Dash Panels Doors Lift gates Head lamp bezels Roof bows Mirror frames Spare tire carriers Shifter Housings As is always the case where there are opportunities there are challenges that go hand in hand, with the converse being true also.

Current constraints are to be resolved in order to prepare the European forging industry for this innovation. Hence, the technological basis for the design and manufacture of magnesium forgings needs to be reinforced and dissemination and training needs to be undertaken. The targeted advancements are to enable high-volume applications of lightweight magnesium forgings. Stakeholders are the forging industry (associations and their SMEs), but also the material producers and end users as well as suppliers of auxiliaries and engineering services.
