Ceramics need to be fired. This slow process is known for its inflexibility and its energy intensity, accounting for ~2 % of global CO2 emissions. The sintering process is currently done by indirectly heating the ceramics through heating of furnaces following the same millennia old principle. This principle, however, is entangled with energy losses and … Weiterlesen …
