Successful integration and simplification of ceramic manufacturing process by using microwave
In recent times, humans have faced the threats of global warming and depletion of energy resources. In Japan, about 40% of the greenhouse gases generated due to energy consumption are emitted from the industrial sector. In particular, the ceramic industry adversely affects the environment. Its energy consumption per product is high because it requires long periods of heating at high temperatures during manufacturing and because it emits many greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide during the manufacturing process.
With the rapid development in fields such as nanotechnology, electronics, and telecommunications, today's ceramic industry aims to develop high value-added products featured by high performance and new functions. Thus, it is necessary to fundamentally review the manufacturing process for next-generation ceramics. From the viewpoint of these social requirements, it is strongly desired to develop a highly efficient manufacturing process technology that reduces the time per process, reduces the energy consumption, and minimizes the number of processes.
