Titan machines are used to make cars, boats, planes and other things.
But they’re also crucial parts of industrial processes that have long been a concern to government and consumer advocates.
A Titan auction could be one way to fill that gap.
The U.S. Department of Energy announced in January it would auction off Titan equipment and parts to buyers in an effort to modernize a variety of energy-efficient products.
The bid comes after years of efforts by government and industry to upgrade energy efficiency and energy-efficiency standards.
