Scientific Program

Scope of ICAEC 2014

The aim of this conference is to elucidate current environmental conditions and to find suitable countermeasures for preventing expansion of pollution by micro-pollutants. In order to achieve the aim, participants will give presentations, share their knowledge each other and enhance their relationship.


Scientific Topics

Topics of the conference are related as follows;

  • Contaminant of inorganic and organic substances including heavy metals, persistent organic pollutants, endocrine disrupting chemicals, hydrocarbons, PAHs, VOCs, and so on in the environment from industries, mining, waste disposal and others activities.
  • Pollution without boundaries
  • Toxicology research related to the exposed toxic substances and human health/ Health impact assessment
  • Biotechnology/Bioremediation/Novel technology or advance technology or alternative technologies for environmental remediation/protection and sustainable development
  • Radiochemical pollution
  • Green chemistry/green environment/green consumption/green production/3R's philosophy - reduce, reuse, recycle/Purification systems, new cleaner technologies and equipment
  • Environmental education
  • Regulation/Policy management
