In the paper, some problems of nanoceramics production are discussed. Some crucial stages in the production cycle are pointed out, among others the nanoscale powder synthesis and the compaction during the sintering. A novel method of hot pressing under the directly applied electric current was proposed. Some examples of advantageous characteristics obtained through the new method were provided. The hot press sintering under the electric current is suitable for the production of structured nanoceramics, cutting tools for industrial applications, filters for industry and the functional nanoceramics like optical elements or biomedical implants.
