T2S5: Advanced Refractory Ceramic Materials and Technologies

Register for 11th CMCEE


Ceramic technologies for sustainable development


Though refractory ceramic materials have often been considered a commodity, they are actual complex engineered ceramic materials. Refractory materials are used in energy-intensive manufacturing applications where they provide thermal insulation, as well as chemical and structural durability in extreme environments. As such, there is great opportunity to decrease the energy, environmental, and economic impact of global industry through improved selection, design, and implementation of these materials. This symposium will highlight advances in design and engineering of refractory materials and explore application of refractory materials in various industries to promote energy and environmental efficiency. 


Proposed session topics:

  • Raw material availability, selection, and use
  • Refractory design
  • Additive manufacturing and advance processing techniques
  • Refractory characterization through testing and simulation
  • Refractory materials and technologies for iron and steel, nonferrous metallurgy, glass manufacture, petrochemical applications, and cement and lime production
