T2S7: Ceramics in Conventional Energy, Oil, and Gas Exploration

Register for 11th CMCEE


Ceramic technologies for sustainable development


Ceramic-based materials are increasingly used for demanding applications in conventional energy, oil, and gas exploration, including reusing ceramic byproducts of the manufacturing process. Nanotechnology is increasingly used in these fields. Recent studies include developing wear-resistant materials and structural components, piezoelectric sensors, gas sensors, engineered ceramic proppants based materials, reusing fly ash (FA) and coal gangue for different applications, and developing multifunctional nanomaterials for different oil exploration. There are numerous challenges and opportunities in developing extremely reliable, heat-stable, and corrosion-resistant structural components, which this symposium will cover.


Proposed session topics:

  • Wear resistant materials and structural components
  • Proppants for shale gas and oil recovery
  • Nanotechnology in coal and oil exploration
  • Green cements or other applications by reutilizing FA and coal gangue
  • Advanced manufacturing processes
  • Sensor development
  • Novel ceramic-based materials for insulation
  • Emerging exploration applications
