Symposium 21

Ceramics for Environmental Conservation, Energy and Environmental

Environment pollution and energy crisis are two worldwide problems and pose the great threat to the sustainable development of our society. Due to the pressures of overconsumption, population growth and technology, the biophysical environment is being degraded, sometimes permanently. Up to now, lots of ceramic materials have been developed for environmental and energy applications. This symposium aims to bring together the scientific and engineering community to foster knowledge sharing and networking. Recent advances will be presented in the design, synthesis, characterization, and properties of ceramics for environmental and energy catalytic applications from both theoretical and experimental approaches. This type of ceramics can be based on various morphologies including but not limited to powder, membranes, fibers, films, composite materials and their applications. A broad range of topics are welcome for contributions, including but not limited to adsorbents for water and air treatments, porous ceramic membranes for filtration and separation, electrocatalysts, photocatalysts, thermocatalysts, etc. for environment pollutant remediation and conversion, novel materials and devices for environment pollutant detection, and catalysts for environment pollutant treatment and green energy.

Proposed sessions
ª Ceramic adsorbents for water and air treatments
ª Ceramic membranes for environmental applications
ª Electrocatalytic, photocatalytic, thermocatalytic ceramics for environmental remediation
ª Inorganic materials and composites for catalytic treatment of pollutants
ª Ceramic-based sensors for environmental pollutant detection
