G3: Novel, green, and strategic processing and manufacturing technologies



Material properties and performance largely depend on processing and manufacturing routes. Recently developed processing and manufacturing technologies for ceramic materials and systems provide unique properties that cannot be achieved from conventional routes, but these technologies also come with critical issues. One consideration is whether technologies are “green” or environmentally benign, and thus avoid generation of elements and compounds hazardous to human health and to the environment and protect the global environment by preserving energy during fabrication. Another consideration is whether technologies are “strategic”—using no or lesser amounts of rare natural resources for stable production. Keeping these aspects in view, this symposium will discuss advances in processing and manufacturing technologies for a variety of ceramic materials.


Proposed session topics:


• Green manufacturing processes with lower environmental burden

• Energy-efficient processing

• Microwave or microwave-assisted processing, SPS

• Education and learning in sustainable materials processing

• Materials recycling for ceramic manufacturing

• Alternatives for rare metals and materials

• Room- or low-temperature synthesis

• Aqueous synthesis and processing, colloidal processing

• Polymer-based processing

• Large scale or complicated shape processing

• Advanced composite manufacturing technologies, hybrid processes
