INTRODUCTION

 
 


The sixth Asia-Oceania Conference on Sustainable and Green Chemistry (AOC-SGC6) will be held at the City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, from 27 to 30 November 2016.

The major challenges for sustainable and green chemistry include the sustainable management of global resources, replacement of fossil resources for the production of energy and carbon-based consumer products, and better understanding of environmental issues caused by natural and synthetic chemicals to design and develop preventive measures and alternative technologies.

AOC-SGC6 will focus on sustainable and green chemistry to develop innovative and economical technologies.

Hong Kong is a metropolitan city, where the East meets the West. Coming to Hong Kong is easy by flight from all over the world.

We look forward to seeing you in November 2016.
