2014 - Sustainable Industrial Processing Summit & Exhibition


ShechtmanFray Symposium
29 June - 04 July 2014, Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun All Inclusive Resort, Cancun, Mexico

In honor of life-time achievements of
Prof. Dan Shechtman - 2011 Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry

Prof. Dan Shechtman discovered quasi-crystals exactly 30 years ago, in 1982, while fast quenching an aluminum and magnesium alloy. This went against the established scientific knowledge which recognized only crystals and amorphous phases. Nobody believed him, but Prof. Shechtman did not give up. His discovery started to be recognized only about twelve years later. The entire fundamental chemical knowledge of crystals and amorphous phases was completely changed by a materials engineer whose discovery reached wide recognition only about 20 years later and eventually culminated in the awarding of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, about 30 years after his original discovery. Today the quasi-crystals he discovered through an electron microscope in a fast quenched metal alloy have found widespread sustainable applications from LEDs to engines and frying pans due to their non-stick, rust-free and heat-resistant properties.

This symposium will honor the great lifetime achievements of Prof. Shechtman and will equally cover the important pillars of sustainability: (1) science, technology and industrial practice (2) political and social framework and (3) education in the entire cycle of materials science from mineral processing to metals extraction and the development of new materials.
