September 30 – October 3; 2015 İzmir – TURKEY

On the behalf of Green Chemistry and Green Engineering Group, it is our pleasure and honor to invite you to join our conference on Green Chemistry and Sustainable Technologies 2015 in İzmir, TURKEY. GCST 2015 is going to be organized under the chairmanship of İzmir Kâtip Celebi University.

The conference intends to gather important scientists across the globe to discuss the latest developments in green chemistry, green manufacturing and engineering, biomass and wastes as resources, alternative energy, life-cycle assessment, green education and policies, green economy. Each topic will be introduced by a plenary talk given by the leading experts of the field. GCST 2015 includes oral presentations, posters session, and exhibition.

As the regulations of REACH change depending on the enviromental conditions, the increased awareness of the global warming, increased CO2 emissions; green chemistry and sustainable technologies play the most vital role for the society, ecology and industry. This conference will be held in one of the most important meeting points in the land of Anatolia which is an ideal platform for sharing the results of works in R&D in cutting edge technology, fundamental knowledge and experiences of the industry.

This breakthrough conference, which will be the first in its genre in Turkey, expects to bring together worldwide known industrialists, scientists, researchers and academics. We look forward to seeing you in our conference.

Sincerely yours,

The Organizing Committee
