Paper Title:
Environmental Impact Evaluation and Rationalization of Ceramics Process on the Basis of Exergy Analysis
  Abstract

In order to lower environmental impact in manufacturing, it is necessary to know the processes of consumption and emission of resource and energy with bird’s eyes view point. In this paper, exergy analysis was conducted in case when heater tube used in the molten aluminum was made of steel and ceramics. As results, it is revealed that ceramics have effectiveness in the reduction of environmental burden through the lifecycle process, while ceramics consumes much higher exergy than the steel one in production stage.
