For many years, researchers in the foundry industry and universities have been developing testing protocols to evaluate the emission characteristics of prepared green sand during pouring, cooling and shakeout. This paper will review the testing protocol and methods utilized in the collection and evaluation of these emissions that is the result of the entire metalcasting process. An important criterion also is the quality of the casting produced (defect free) when emission characteristics are reduced. This paper will also include the laser imaging evaluation of the castings that are the result of the green sand foundry emissions.
