The article discusses a report by researchers Rustum Roy, D. Agarwal and M. Sato on how microwave processing techniques for metals and ceramics and increase energy efficiency and reduce energy consumption. The process also reduces carbon dioxide emissions. Roy commented on how magnetic fields can de-crystallize matter and promoted commercialization of microwave use.
