Ceramics: lighter and stronger finished products

In Minerals for Ceramics, the Ceramic Centre’s work is particularly focused on the development of lighter, stronger products that save raw materials and energy, and of new, more environment-friendly mineral conversion processes. In 2010, this led to two patent applications, one in lightweight, innovative ceramic products and one in processing techniques.
