Aluminum production creates some of the most corrosive high-temperature environments in industry today. Advanced ceramic materials are known for their superior performance in high-temperature, corrosive operating conditions. It seems natural that aluminum producers would take advantage of the improved energy efficiency, productivity, and metal quality that advanced ceramics can offer. However, due to a variety of factors, including the high cost relative to traditional materials, the lack of experience in aluminum processes, and durability concerns, advanced ceramics are used very little in aluminum production today, compared to their potential.
Despite these concerns, the most significant reason for their limited use is lack of knowledge and understanding between the two industries on the material requirements of aluminum production and material characteristics that advanced ceramics can offer. This report summarizes a workshop aimed at bringing the two industries together to discuss aluminum needs and advanced ceramic capabilities. By starting a dialogue between the two industries, this report represents the first step in forming a collaborative partnership to take advantage of considerable opportunities to improve production and energy efficiency.
