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.

EMEC11 - First Announcement


On the behalf of the European Association of Chemistry and the Environment (ACE) we would like to invite you to join us at the 11th European Meeting on Environmental Chemistry, held in the St. Bernardin, Adriatic Resort & Convention Center in Portorož, Slovenia from 8-11 December 2010. The conference theme is

Chemistry for the Environment
which gives emphasis on the fields of research on development and application of new materials and clean technologies, where might chemistry with its applications make the environment cleaner and more friendly to all of us who live on this planet.

EMEC11 continues the tradition of ten annual meetings providing a forum for exchange of ideas on recent advances in research and development in environmental chemistry and technology for people from industry, research and academia.

In addition, other topics, such as atmospheric chemistry, soil chemistry, aquatic and marine chemistry, photochemistry and photocatalysis, biodegradation and bioremediation, ecotoxicology and biomarkers, emerging contaminants, water treatment and waste management, analytical methods for environmental science and biomonitoring, waste and wastewater treatment, pollution and cultural heritage, will be covered within the conference keynote, oral and poster sessions.

This meeting will be hosted by Laboratory for Enviromental Research and School of Environmental sciences of University of Nova Gorica.

The official language of the conference is English. To visit the conference website click here.

We hope to see you there!
