Welcome to the ACE

The Association of Chemistry and the Environment (ACE) is a non-profit-making scientific association founded in October 2000 by a group of European scientists. We aim to promote global contact between scientists in academia and research institutes, the commercial sector and social representatives within governmental and regulatory bodies to address environmental problems and to promote education in this area.

We strongly welcome scientists from diverse fields such as atmosphere science, biology, geology, industrial chemistry, medicine, sociology, soil science, toxicology and water science to play an active role within the organisation.

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to invite you to participate to

The 19th European Meeting on Environmental Chemistry (EMEC 19)
that will be held at Royat, near Clermont-Ferrand (France), from 3rd to 6th December 2018

Link to website EMEC19

The conference is organized by the Institute of Chemistry of Clermont-Ferrand (ICCF) from the Clermont Auvergne University / CNRS / Sigma-Clermont, on behalf of the Association of Chemistry and the Environment (ACE).


EMEC meetings bring together scientists working in the field of environmental chemistry, to report their most advanced research progresses and to pave the way for the future research and challenges. This conference covers a broad range of topics within the field of environmental chemistry:

 Sustainable chemistry (new compounds, green processes)

 Environmental compartments (Atmosphere, Soils, Marine and surface waters) with focuses on monitoring, processes (biological and chemical), remediation and ecotoxicology

 Methodology and modeling

Interdisciplinary presentations are very welcome.

We look forward to seeing you in Royat!

Best Regards,
Anne-Marie DELORT, Chair of the EMEC 19 conference
