Abstract
There are vast quantities of the mineral olivine in North Carolina and Washington. This mineral is refractory, has a high volume heat capacity, and has no polymorphic transformations. Uses as heat- exchange media currently involve off-peak power heat storage; in the past it involved glass furnace regenerators. Recent studies of olivine-based heat-exchange refractories are discussed.
