Welcome Message

On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee, I am pleased to welcome conference attendees, speakers, poster presenters, and exhibitors to the Industrial Chemistry Conference which will take place in Edmonton November 12-14, 2014.

The Industrial Chemistry Conference is presented by the Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC), the Canadian Society for Chemical Technology (CSCT), and the Association of the Chemical Profession of Alberta (ACPA).

I am very excited about the wonderful program the organizing committee has prepared. The conference has been designed for the interest of chemists, chemical technologists, chemical engineers, managers, researchers, recent graduates, and students working or aspiring to work in government, private, or industrial settings. Special attention has been given to the environment and to oil and gas industries, including upstream (exploration, production and mining), midstream (transportation), and downstream (upgrading and refining) operations. The program is focused on two themes: Process Chemistry and Environmental Chemistry. We are delighted to have Plenary Speaker Eddy Isaacs, CEO, Alberta Innovates - Energy & Environmental Solutions, speak on the pivotal role of industrial and environmental processes in the sustainable development of Alberta’s oil sands. In addition to the excellent technical content, the conference allows for some great networking opportunities during the sessions, workshops, courses, exhibition, and poster sessions.
