Symposium 3

Advanced Powder Processing and Green Manufacturing Technologies

Powder processing is critical to the economical production of high-quality advanced ceramics, and can also enhance materials functionalities to enable new and broader applications in high technology clean energy and energy-conserving industries for a sustainable society. Moreover, the "green" manufacturing technologies are required to avoid formation of harmful elements and compounds during fabrication. To realize these attributes, powder design and synthesis, suspension control, and structural control of granulated feedstock, green body, and sintered ceramics must be well understood and carefully engineered. This symposium focuses on advanced powder processing and manufacturing technologies in the following areas.

Proposed sessions
ª Nanoparticle and powder design and synthesis
ª Particle coating technology and composite particle fabrication
ª Particle dispersion control in liquid or polymers
ª Novel forming and sintering technology
ª Microstructural evolution
ª Nano/microstructure control
ª Controlled composites or pore structure
ª Green synthesis and manufacturing processes
ª Advanced recycling technology
ª Characterization of particle and powder
