Environmental Sustainability and Pollution Control Through Science

This meeting promises stimulating lectures and presentations on landmark scientific researches, professional training opportunities, and lots of time to connect with colleagues for new collaborations. We aim to provide a forum for novel discoveries and approaches related to environmental research. We welcome participants from the academia, industries and governmental agencies.
