Symposium 27: Ceramics for Enabling Environmental Protection: Clean Air and Water



The objective of this symposium is to provide an international forum to review ceramic technologies that can be applied in addressing global challenges related to clean air and water. This symposium will focus on ceramic technologies as enablers for removal of pollutants that are already present in the environment, reduction or elimination of future pollution sources, and development of new processes and products with respect to efficiency, economy, ecology, and reduced resource consumption. The scope of the symposium extends from recent scientific breakthroughs in materials, processing, and systems design that help environmental protection to implementation of these improvements into already existing and new product applications.



  • Gas filtration and separation
  • Liquid purification, recovery, and desalinization of water
  • Novel materials and processes enabling new products for environmental protection
  • Novel environmental applications for ceramic-based systems
  • Coatings for environmental protection
