Technical EU experts host one-day event on new Ceramic Matrix Composites for the Process Industry

Academia and industry meet in Perugia, Italy, to discuss technical advancement in the CMC sector

To make the most out of the Cimtec Congress 2022 and exchange news and best practices, a technical group of academic and industry experts in Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) hosts the first Italo-French in-person event after the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The meeting, scheduled from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm, will take place on June 25th, 2022 at Centro Congressi Hotel Quatrotorri, in Perugia (Italy). The morning will start with expert presentations about CMCs research and technical development in Italy, France and Germany, by academics from the Torino Polytechnic (Politecnico di Torino, POLITO) and the Laboratory on Thermostructural Composites (Laboratoire des Composites Thermo Structuraux – LCTS), which is co-funded by the University of Bordeaux (France), the French National Centre For Scientific Research (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, CNRS), the French Atomic and Alternative Energies Center (CEA) and the Safran Group (France).

Among the scheduled topics from invited presenters, from Italian and French industries and universities, both innovative CMCs processing routes and applications will be explored. Petroceramics (Italy) will introduce C-fiber reinforced CMCs by (R)MI Route, while CEA Saclay (France) will talk about the development of SiC/SiC CMCs for nuclear fuel cladding applications. ANDRA (France) will present the development of ox/ox and fiber/geopolymer CMCs for underground nuclear waste storage management applications.

In addition, the EU-funded CEM-WAVE project, and its proposed application within the steelmaking industry, will be discussed in two presentations by its consortium members. The first one, by the LCTS Lab, will include a general overview of the new routes for CMCs processing. The second one, more specific on the project cycle and first results, will be given by the Project Coordinator, University of Pisa (UNIPI, Italy). The LCTS Lab, POLITO and the UNIPI are all members of the CEM-WAVE consortium.

Organized by the Research Group on Ceramic Matrix Composite Materials (GDR CMC2) and the CNRS LCTS Lab, with the collaboration of the Italian Chapter of the American Ceramic Society (ACERS, Italy), the POLITO's Glance Group and Advanced Joining Technologies Group (J-Tech), the CMCs event is free of charge and open to all interested parties upon subscription.
