S1: Energy and Environmental Aspects— Fundamentals and Application
Glass can be engineered with a wide range of properties and in many different forms to make it important in both active and passive applications for current and emerging energy and environmental technologies. This symposium will draw an arc from the fundamental approaches (interplay of theory, modeling and experiment) via material properties (compositional influences and signatures) and their characterization (in-situ, ex-situ) to manufacturing (novel processing techniques), longtime performance and recycling aspects (cradle-to-cradle) of glasses and glass systems. Current applications and future directions in the fields of architecture, mobility, power, as well as chemical (catalysis) and biological (biomass) interactions will be addressed.
