Powder Metallurgy in the Green Transition – Training Webinar

Loading Events



The scenario that Europe will experience in the next decades, and is already experiencing, is a transition one. 

The EU industry, and the whole society, is requested to undergo a profound renovation, encompassing necessary changes that will lead to a more sustainable impact of human endeavours on the planet, and in return, a safer environment for humans themselves. We can summarise all this under the term “Green Transition”. Processes will have to be leaner and cleaner, consumers will have to be more responsible, reuse and recycling will be the rule, and our habits will likely gradually change. Carbon footprint is the most popular indicator as it is more directly linked to climate change, but several others; like use of energy, water and resources, need to be addressed and the EU is actively fostering innovation in those directions, as Europe wants to lead the change. 

Mining and industrial processing of raw materials for manufacturing will be a key area; and Powder Metallurgy (PM) proposes itself as a green industry, with the advantage of efficient use of resources and the outstanding flexibility in processing novel and more performant materials. Thus, we believe that PM will have a central role in the next decades. 

Due to the importance of this subject, EPMA wants to help by introducing a new line of training, dedicated to the role of PM in the Green Transition. In our plans, it will be a series of training webinars, each one as a standalone event, but all covering different aspects. We expect it to be useful both for young engineers and researchers that want to enlarge their views on capabilities and applications of PM different from that they are working in, and for end users that want to be updated on the opportunities given by PM technologies in their field. If the acceptance will be satisfactory, there will be one or more sessions every year with different topics, although we do not exclude that the same topic may be reviewed in various editions. 

The starting format of the sessions, that we will implement in Session 1, comprises 3 lectures on different topics, by invited experts. Each lecture lasts 40 minutes, plus some time for Q&A; at the end of the session, there will be an evaluation test (tick box style) that will be analysed by EPMA to emit, later, a certificate for each participant with the percentage of achievement. The total duration of the session is 3 hours. 

The lectures will be recorded and will be later available for review for the participants, and for EPMA members. Copy of the slides will be distributed to participants. 

As background knowledge, we require a basic knowledge of powder metallurgy processes (similar to what is obtained after the EPMA PM Summer School) as speakers will not spend time in explaining these topics. 

To support the organisation of the event, a small participant fee is due: 

EPMA members 50 € 
Non-members 100 € 


Registration deadline: Until 19th March 2024 end of day, CET
