El proyecto LIFE CERSUDS: un ejemplo de innovación en la gestión del drenaje urbano

Castellón, 06/02/2019.- ¿Cómo hacer llegar los conceptos y experiencias prácticas sobre los sistemas urbanos de drenaje sostenible? ¿Qué pasos son necesarios para incorporar nuevas técnicas y enfoques en la gestión del agua de lluvia en el ámbito de la hidráulica urbana? Estas y otras preguntas tendrán respuesta el próximo 20 de febrero a las 12:15 en la jornada: “Innovación en la gestión del drenaje urbano: […]

Overview of the rheological behaviour of ceramic slurries

Autores: Vitali, S. et Al. RESUMEN: Given that the majority of raw materials used in the ceramic industry have sedimentary origins, their formation is conducted in aqueous medium, reason for which most ceramic production processes involve water for manufacturing diverse semi-finished materials. However, the rheological behaviour inherent of ceramics may infer significant impact on their processing, defining crucial parameters such as solid-to-water ratio, deflocculation level, and tpye and amount of […]

Effect of specimen geometry on kinetics of thermal decomposition

Autores: Cargnin, M. et Al. RESUMEN: Porous ceramic tiles are used as covering for indoor vertical surfaces in buildings. Clay and limestone are the starting raw materials. The firing step consolidates the product’s properties in the manufacturing process. In this step several reactions occur, among them are the dehydroxylation of the clay minerals and decomposition of the carbonates. This study determined the kinetics parameters associated with the decomposition of […]

Porcelain and red ceramic wastes used as replacements for coarse aggregate in concrete

Autores: Keshavarz, Z. et Al. RESUMEN: Recent advances in construction engineering have made the design of safe structures possible and attracted an increasing attention to the use of concrete for its beneficial properties. This has, in turn, instigated a lot of efforts aimed at improving the physical and chemical properties of concrete. This is while increasing numbers of industry are producing waste products that warrant to […]

The reuse of waste glass for enhancement of heavy metals immobilization during the introduction of galvanized sludge in brick manufacturing

Autores: Mao, L. et Al. RESUMEN: The mixing of galvanized sludge in fired clay brick manufacturing has been regarded as an alternative approach for the consumption of galvanized sludge. Decreasing the surface area and porosity of fired brick definitely lowers the risk of heavy metal release. In this study, a novel method is proposed to reduce the surface area and porosity of bricks and promote heavy metal […]

Submicro-zirconia crystal-intergrown zircon opaque glaze

Autores: Onler, R. et Al. RESUMEN: Zircon opaque glaze is widely used in sanitary and building ceramic products due to its high-temperature stability. Massive amounts of zircon are consumed by the ceramic industry yearly. In this work, a method to reduce zircon consumption and enhance opaque effect was proposed by intergrowth of submicro zirconia. Alumina was added to a K–Na–Ca–Al–Si–Zr system glaze to prepare a 5 wt % content highly […]

Heat recovery in sanitary-ware industry applied to water and energy saving by multi-effect distillation

Autores: Cuviella-Suárez, C. Sanitary-ware industry, as a sub-sector in the ceramic industry, is a great consumer of energy and water, although there are some opportunities to reduce the global consumption, especially for factories based on resin molds technology. This research aims to show the way to reduce drastically water consumption by recovering waste heat into a multi-effect distillation system to re-use most of the flushing water. This […]

Green micromachining of ceramics using tungsten carbide micro-endmills

Autores: Onler, R. et Al. RESUMEN: This paper presents an experimental analysis on micromachining of green-state silicon carbide (SiC) and aluminum nitride (AlN) using uncoated tungsten carbide (WC) micro-endmills. Although the unique properties of ceramics make them ideal materials for many applications involving micro-scale features, the industrial adaptation of ceramics at the micro-scale has been hindered due to the lack of viable ceramic micro-manufacturing techniques. Green micromachining (GMM), […]

El ITC integra la industria 4.0 en la promoción de la cerámica en las tiendas

Castellón, 10 de enero de 2019.- El Instituto de Tecnología Cerámica (ITC) profundiza en la implantación de la estrategia 4.0 en la industria cerámica mediante su integración en la promoción del producto cerámico en las tiendas y puntos de venta. Concretamente, dentro del proyecto CEBRA +, precursor del Ceramic Brain, en el que ya se está implantando la fábrica 4.0, el ITC está desarrollando otro […]

ITC-NdP-El ITC mejora la sostenibilidad de la cerámica con el proyecto: CER-OH! Strategies

Castellón, 27 de diciembre de 2018.-El proyecto CerOh! Strategies que está siendo desarrollado por el Instituto de Tecnología Cerámica (ITC) gracias al apoyo del Instituto Valenciano de Competitividad Empresarial (IVACE) a través de los Fondos europeos FEDER de Desarrollo Regional, comenzó en marzo de 2018 y se centra en el estudio de estrategias basadas en la economía circular para que la industria de fabricación de […]
