G2: Novel, Green, and Strategic Processing and Manufacturing Technologies

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. On the other hand, we should take into account at least two critical issues in making materials and products. One is that the technologies are “green” or environmentally benign so as to avoid generation of elements and compounds hazardous to the human health and environments and to protect the global environment by preserving energy during the fabrication. The other is that they are “strategic” or using no or less quantity of rare natural resources for stable production.

Keeping these aspects in view, the aim of this symposium is to discuss advances in processing and manufacturing technologies for a wide variety of ceramics and advanced 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/low-temperature synthesis
  • Aqueous synthesis and processing, colloidal processing
  • Advanced composite manufacturing technologies, hybrid processes
