S3: Novel, Green, and Strategic Processing and Manufacturing Technologies



The properties and performance of materials largely depend on their processing and manufacturing routes. Manufacturing processes carefully designed with sufficient understanding of forming/sintering behaviors lead to reliable performance of components and products of large size and complex shapes.
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 ceramic and related materials.
