The Plasma Transferred Wired Arc (PTWA) thermal spray process applies a coating to an engine block, which helps bring it back to near-original condition (Credit: Ford). 

When an engine fails or becomes very worn, it is usually pulled from the vehicle and scrapped. Ford wants to change that by utilizing a high-tech plasma process to remanufacture broken engines. The process reduces carbon emissions by about half when compared to making a new engine to replace the old one, and results in a like-new engine block.
