About this Symposium
Meeting 2018 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium Perfluorocarbon Generation and Emissions from Industrial Processes
Sponsorship TMS Light Metals Division
TMS: Aluminum Committee
Organizer(s) Pascal Lavoie, Light Metals Research Centre - The University of Auckland
David S. Wong, University of Auckland

Scope Perfluorinated carbon compounds (PFCs) are potent greenhouse gases that are generated from multiple industrial processes, including the production of aluminum, rare-earth metals, semi-conductors and fluorinated gases.

This symposium aims at:

1. Quantifying emissions including measurement techniques and accounting within and between industries
2. Understanding generation mechanisms
3. Providing emission reduction and mitigation techniques
Abstracts Due 07/16/2017
