ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Chemistry plays an essential role in helping society achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Green chemistry aims at making chemistry more energy efficient, at reducing waste disposal, and/or producing innovative products with less consumption of natural resources. Alternative processes and reaction pathways are designed, new materials and products are developed contributing to meet our needs today, but with taking more care of the interests of future generations. Opportunities for new chemical research, green and sustainable chemistry education, green and sustainable chemical manufacturing practices, and a sense of social responsibility are crucial for the current and future chemists to protect the planet. Health researchers are working on new diagnostic methods, assistive technologies as well as delivering reports to underpin health policy. There is also a need to find more efficient, cleaner and sustainable sources of energy and focus on energy research to enhance national competiveness. This Conference aims to be a forum for scientists, researchers, industrialists from different parts of the country and abroad to interact and exchange ideas, information and share knowledge in the diverse field of research towards achieving sustainability.
