Academic forum on Low-Carbon
Technology and Sustainable Development
Actively responding to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, China is making an effort to achieve the goals of peaking carbon emissions and subsequent carbon neutrality. In the context of this strategic goal, low-carbon technology and sustainable development have become a research hotspot in the fields of Chemical Engineering, Energy, Environment and Materials Science. Low-carbon technology has become an important approach for industrial transformation and upgrading, sustainable use of resources, and effective pollution control. Relying on National-Local Joint Engineering Laboratory for Energy Conservation in Chemical Process Integration and Resources Utilization, Tianjin Key Laboratory of Cleaner Energy Utilization and Pollution Control and some other national and provincial platforms, Hebei University of Technology will hold an online academic forum on “Low-Carbon Technology and Sustainable Development” on November 28, 2021 (Beijing Time). Nine world-renowned scholars from US, UK, Canada, Australia and Japan have accepted the invitations for the keynote speeches, and will share their most recent research activities in the area of low carbon technologies deployment in various sectors (industry, households, transport, etc.), and successful experiences on how to publish in high quality scientific journals. The purpose of the forum is to promote international academic exchange and cooperation in the field of low carbon technologies and sustainable development.
