Symposium: Industrial Ceramics

Topic description

The EU ceramics industry is a world leader in producing uniquely designed high quality ceramic products such as tiles, sanitaryware, tableware, brick and roof tiles, and refractories. However, the silicate based traditional ceramic and construction materials industry needs to continuously evolve and adapt to the challenges of an increasingly competitive and sustainable industry. Consequently, considerable attention is required by the sector to research and development in all aspects: from design to digital decoration, from new products to new applications, to innovation in the materials and the manufacturing processes, and to input from progress in many other fields of advanced materials. Examples of major challenges can be given as increasing benefit of such products by incorporating new functions or improving existing ones, digital applications, reducing the energy cost and emissions during production, selecting and preparing raw materials for new recipes, recycling of wastes, and so on.
