The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) is seeking speakers for its popular Functional Materials Seminar, taking place online June 1–2. This year’s seminar will cover the powder-based functional materials that are currently, or likely to be, used in the energy sector.

With the ever-increasing push towards greener energy production and distribution, functional materials can be a key field of innovation, having the potential to bring even higher efficiencies in all relevant processes, while offering advantages in terms of environmental impact at all levels.

The application of PM functional materials in the energy sector includes materials used in raw materials refining, energy production, energy storage and transportation, etc. Catalysers, high temperature, radiation shielding, heat exchangers, energy storage (including hydrogen and solid-state batteries), electrical materials, semi- and superconductors, are all possible candidates for discussion in the seminar.

All submitted proposals will be evaluated by the EuroFM Steering Committee, taking into account that priority will be given to:

  • Speeches from industrial end users highlighting actual commercial applications
  • Speeches describing the output of tight collaborations between industry and RTD performers
  • Speeches with high degree of novelty

The deadline for speaker applications is January 30, 2021. For further details contact Bruno Vicenzi:

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
