Silicate ceramics account for over 80% of the ceramic industry turnover on a global basis. Future expansion is also predicted on increasing demand from construction and domestic uses, driven by improved life standards and demographic growth. In such a competitive and dynamic landscape, process and product innovation proved to be the key for growth. Ceramic technologies have been continuously upgrading and manufacturers are looking to industry 4.0 processing systems. The purpose of this symposium is to focus interest on ongoing R&D activities on silicate ceramics: wall and floor tiles, sanitaryware and tableware, bricks and roof tiles, ceramic technology and machinery, glazes and pigments, and raw materials. Matter will cover research work on the properties and behaviour of materials, quality assurance, development of new ceramic products and manufacturing technologies.
Session Topics

CM-1 Smart silicate ceramics

There is an increasing industrial concern on technologies able to provide additional properties to silicate ceramic surfaces, turning them capable of reacting with the environment, so that the ceramics become an active element contributing to the control of the environment and to the energetic sustainability. Contributions on functionalized surfaces (self-cleaning, bacteriostatic or providing high reflectance, controlled grip, wear resistance, magnetic shielding, thermo-hygrometric comfort or energy harvesting) as well as durability, efficiency, scale-up to large surfaces, and testing procedures of multifunctional silicate ceramics are welcome.

CM-2 Green silicate ceramics

Social and technological challanges require a further effort to improve the sustainability of ceramic manufacturing. This session will take stock of technological solutions and processing innovation in the silicate ceramic industry (tiles, sanitaryware, glazes, bricks, etc). A special focus will concern health and environmental issues (e.g., CO2 emissions, crystalline silica, green certificates, reduction of wastes originated during processing) and all aspects of valorization of residues as raw materials in the manufacture of ceramics.

CM-3 Coating and decoration of silicate ceramics

The new scenario drawn by the advent of digital technologies is continuously evolving from decoration towards application of special effects, glazes and functional coatings. The last advances in surface coating and decoration by ink-jet printing and further drop-on-demand technologies will be reviewed. This session deals with materials development and behaviour (ceramic inks, engobes, effects, glazes, etc) including environmental sustainability and green chemistry in colorant manufacturing.

CM-4 Innovative processing in silicate ceramics

The ceramic industry has to tackle the challenges coming from evolving market demand, new construction systems and product standards. This session will focus on innovative manufacturing of silicate ceramics (e.g., large slabs, 3D printing, novel granulation systems, etc) and progress in the processing of composites and geopolymers.

CM-5 Geopolymers

Preparation and characterization: Synthesis and processing; Geopolymerization kinetics; Conversion to ceramics; Composites; Microstructure; Thermal properties; Mechanical properties; Chemical stability and adhesion. Applications: Geopolymer concrete; Waste immobilisation; High-technology applications (electronic properties, bioactivity, catalysis); Commercialization issue.
