Evaluation of Energy Consumption in Ceramic Fabrication Process for Alumina Ceramics with Diverse Particle Sizes
In order to develop low-energy ceramic processing, we evaluated the energy consumption of total fabrication processes of alumina ceramics with various particle sizes. It is demonstrated that the optimum particle size is several tens of nanometers for energy-saving, and decreasing particle size from 400 to 40 nm enables the 40 % energy reduction in this assessment.
