ceramitec conference + exhibition 2021: Now Postponed to 15–16 September
ceramitec, originally scheduled for May 2021, has been postponed to June 2022 on account of the reduced possibilities for worldwide travel. On a smaller scale, the ceramitec conference + exhibition will take place. Initially the ceramitec conference + exhibition was announced for 22–23 June 2021. But end of April, the Organizing Committee decided to approach all active participants to shift the date to 15–16 September 2021 to get more visitors to come to Munich. Working together with Fraunhofer HTL/DE, IAPK/DE and the Expert Group CIM/DE as partners, CERAMIC APPLICATIONS will organise a two-track conference in FORUM 1 and FORUM 2, which will be complemented by AM Ceramics organised by Lithoz/AT in FORUM 3.
Since the current pandemic situation does not allow for the reliable planning of a face-to-face conference in Dresden/DE (or any other place in Europe) during 2021, the Conference of the European Ceramic Society – ECerS has been postponed to next year, i.e. 2022.
Marcheluzzo´s three goals regarding brick drying are: Metamorphosis, Conditions Efficiency. Clay as a primary element has accompanied the evolution of mankind: from manual dough to drying in the sun.

In 2020, China continued to dominate global Li-ion battery cathode production, producing 68 % of cathode materials. Globally, 96 % of cathode materials are expected to be produced by East Asian manufacturers this year. However, this will change, but by how much is the question.
Cement is one of the key materials for the safe storage of radioactive waste. What is needed is an almost infinite durability of the containers. Empa/CH researchers are therefore analyzing material systems that can handle this task. Barbara Lothenbach from Empa's Concrete & Asphalt Laboratory is investigating cement-based materials, which are suitable for the disposal of radioactive waste.
