The Special Session Advanced Materials for Extreme Conditions and Circular Economy will be held at the IEEE-EEEIC 18th International Conference on Environment and Electrical Engineering (12-15 June 2018, Palermo, Italy).

The objective of this special session, organized in the framework of the two ENEA projects "SUPERMAT" and "EXTREME", is to highlight development and application of novel advanced materials for energy and sustainability at large, which need to be designed to meet opposite challenges: (1) high performance in extreme conditions (e.g. unmet resistance to harsh environment or zero maintenance) and (2) circularity of the approach (e.g. critical raw materials substitution, second life, etc.). Innovative materials for advanced engineering represent a critical bottleneck to accomplish secure societies and a paradigm shift towards a circular economy is on demand, which is fully acknowledged at the European level, as proven by several Research platforms and funded projects in Horizon 2020.

Topics of this special session include but are not limited to: Materials for extreme environment; Critical raw materials substitution; Additive Manufacturing; Materials for high temperature solar thermal systems; Nanotechnologies for energy and circular economy; Advanced modeling of advanced energy materials, including graphene; Advanced characterization methods; Policy making, standardization, social and economic dimensions.
