EUROMAT 99, Ceramics: Processing, Reliability, Tribology, and Water

This day the improvement of technical ceramics is usually orientated in the direction of a greater regulate of the microstructure and ensuing homes of those fabrics. New different types of powders and microstructures are constructed to permit the use of ceramics in new software components. This objective can be reached via generating adequately reproducible reactive powders, improvement of tailored sintering techniques, and via introducing new types of composites.

As a result, the recycling rate for aluminum cans is much higher than for aluminum from construction debris. • Legislation: European Union regulations require the recycling of construction debris. 2 (Bruggink and Martchek, 2004). , 2001). • Industrial involvement: When industry deliberately acquires obsolete items of its own manufacture, the recycle rate goes up. Power and telecommunications firms have long collected scrap cable as they laid replacements. Can producers have constructed several facilities specifically for recycling UBCs (Woehlke, 2011) and now deliberately seek supplies of discarded cans (Miller, 2012).

However, the increasing use of wrought alloys may change this picture (Rombach, 2002), since the lower alloying-element content of wrought alloys makes them much less tolerant of mixed scrap loads. Because of this, the need exists for a means of separating aluminum scrap by alloy or alloy group. This has resulted in a series of technical advances in scrap processing with significant potential. These will be discussed in Chapter 5. , TMSAIME, Warrendale, PA, 1998, Chapters 14 and 15. , Introduction to Aluminum Alloys and Tempers, ASM International, Materials Park, OH, 2000, Chapter 6.
