Meeting 2019 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium Electrode Technology for Aluminum Production
Sponsorship TMS Light Metals Division
TMS: Aluminum Committee
Organizer(s) Lorentz Petter Lossius, Hydro Aluminium AS
Scope The Electrode Technology for Aluminum Production Symposium, along with Aluminum Reduction Technology, Alumina and Bauxite, Cast Shop Technology, and Aluminum Alloys, Processing and Characterization collectively form the Light Metals Symposium. This is an excellent opportunity to interact with experts from the Light Metals industry and academia from all over the world and get the latest update on key issues in the industry. The importance of changes in anode coke supply, increased cell size with larger anodes and cathodes, and cathode wear issues are just some of the issues facing the industry. You are invited to submit papers of fundamental and applied research in the following subject areas:

- Upstream Production of Anode and Cathode Carbon Materials
- Properties of Carbon Anode Coke, Cathode Carbon Materials and Pitch
- Pitch, Coke and Butts Mixing, Anode Forming and Anode Baking
- Hybrid Binders in Anodes, Quality and Environmental Issues
- Paste Plant Design and Operation
- Baking Furnace Design and Operation
- Effects of Sulfur and Impurities in Anodes
- Rodding Room Design and Operation
- Anode Quality and Performance
- Solutions for Carbon Plant Environmental Issues and Safety
- Cathode Materials and Cathode Production
- Cell Preheating and Startup (as related to pot life)
- Cathode Wear and Wear Mechanisms
- Spent Potlining, 1st and 2nd Cut
- Anode Butts Properties, Cleaning and Re-Use
- Inert Anode and Cathode Materials, Fabrication and Performance
