|This symposium will focus on the use of ICME methods and tools to advance sustainable metallurgy and metals processing by bringing together materials, manufacturing, and policy experts. The symposium will highlight the development and integration of novel processing methods and simulation tools to support sustainability, as well as identify gaps in current data resources, simulation tools, and modeling efforts. Specific topics of interests for ICME implementations are:
• Development of new processes and simulation tools for sustainable extractive metallurgy, including novel reduction processes for iron and innovative electrolysis processes for aluminum;
• Optimization and development of innovative metals processing methods and alloys to minimize manufacturing energy costs;
• Development of new methods to increase the re-use and recyclability of metals through new alloy design methods for impurity-tolerant alloys;
• Advancement of additive manufacturing methods and related processes to enable greater re-use of not only used powder but also scrap materials.
The symposium will also highlight a panel discussion of future challenges and opportunities for sustainable metals processing from the perspective of policy and industry leaders.
