SYMPOSIUM D: Eco-Materials and Eco-Technologies

The conference programme entitled as “Eco-materials and Eco-technologies” might be seen as the programme for assembling various scientific achievements either from the field of material processing and evaluation, or from the design of technological processes. Technologies that benefit the earth climate by reducing greenhouse emissions, and provide the use of renewable energy sources, such as photovoltaics, fuel cells, wind turbines or certain cogeneration technologies, might be seen as an example of the latter, as well as the technologies that focus on increasing productivity per unit of water or per any other unit of a precious natural resources. Materials produced with an aim of decreasing the amounts of its toxic elements, or using safer pathways of production, whereby keeping its performance on a satisfying level, together with materials and technologies that implement the use of local resources, might belong to the class of eco-materials.

  • New methods for processing of advanced metal, ceramic, polymer and composite-based biomaterials;
  • Molecular design biomaterials;
  • Biomimetics;
  • Correlation between synthetic parameters and structure and properties of biomaterials (powders, compacts, fibres, composites, coatings, cements, surface modifications, etc.);
  • Characterization of biomaterials;
  • Biological response to implants (experiments in vivo and in vitro);
  • Clinical experiences in implantation of biomaterials.
