T4S3: Novel, Green, and Strategic Processing and Manufacturing Technologies

Register for 11th CMCEE


Ceramic technologies for sustainable development


The properties and performance of materials largely depend on their processing and manufacturing routes. Recently developed new processing and manufacturing technologies of ceramic materials and systems give us unique properties, which cannot be achieved from the conventional routes. Two critical issues impact materials and products manufacturing. First, technologies are green or environmentally benign to avoid hazards to the population and to protect the environment by preserving energy during fabrication. Second, they are strategic because they use less rare natural resources for stable production. Keeping these aspects in view, this symposium will discuss advances in processing and manufacturing technologies for a wide variety of ceramic materials. 


Proposed session topics:

  • Green manufacturing, global environmental issues, and standards
  • Alternative manufacturing processes with lower environmental burden
  • Nanotechnology for environmental remediation and protection
  • Energy-efficient processing
  • Education and learning in sustainable materials processing
  • Ecological binder and slurry technologies
  • Strategic materials: Processing and manufacturing technologies
  • Materials recycling for ceramic manufacturing
  • Alternatives for rare metals and materials
  • Room/low-temperature synthesis
  • Aqueous synthesis and processing, colloidal processing
  • Polymer-based processing
  • Rapid prototyping, patterning, templates, and self-assembly
  • Large scale/complicated shape processing
  • Advanced composite manufacturing technologies, hybrid processes
