G7: Advanced functional materials, devices, and systems for environmental conservation and pollution control



There is a growing trend toward the increasing importance of ceramic materials, which are heatresistant, chemically stable, and multifunctional. However, new functions of ceramic materials are needed for environmental conservation efforts. This symposium will cover a variety of topics for the realization of novel and environmentally conscious functional ceramic materials. The aim of the symposium is to discuss advanced functional ceramic materials, such as environmental catalysts to control emissions; semiconductors and porous materials for chemical sensors and optical materials, such as mercury-free light-emitting diodes; environmentally friendly pigments and sunscreens free of toxic elements; and recovery and recycling of rare metals.


Proposed session topics:


• Ion-conducting ceramics

• Volatile organic compounds and carbon monoxide abatement

• Low-temperature methane oxidation

• Diesel particulate filters

• Automotive ceramic sensors

• Semiconductor materials for p-n junction diodes

• Porous materials

• Phosphors and optical ceramics for light-emitting diodes

• Advanced process control system for recycling

• Environmentally friendly pigments

• Sunscreen materials

• Recovery and recycling of rare metals
