S6: Technologies for Sustainability and Green Materials Processing


EMA 2012


Development of low-carbon, energy-efficient, and environmentally-benign technologies is an emerging issue for economic competitiveness of manufacturing and sustainable energy generation and use. This symposium is a forum for materials issues related to improved materials manufacturing, to new energy efficiency and to energy generation technology development. Improved materials manufacturing, or green processing, includes use of more environmentally-benign and/or lower energy use manufacturing methods, which provide benefits in reduced cost, waste generation, and environmental compliance. Electronic ceramics play an important role in clean energy generation, environmental remediation and energy efficiency technologies. Redox-active materials enable multiple atmospheric effects, including reduction of atmospheric pollution, carbon sequestration, and artificial solarthermal photosynthesis. Electronic ceramics also enable advances in building energy efficiency
through moderation of heat gain and loss (electrochromics and photochromics), photovoltaics (transparent conductive oxides), and novel energy storage methods. Topics include development of novel energy and environmental technologies, waste minimization, and advanced process development.
