4th ETMC 2011 (Environmental Technology and Management Conference 2011)
November 3 – 4, 2011
Sustainable development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs should be implemented in all countries. The implementation is of importance especially with the presence of alarming local to global scale anthropogenic environmental problems and how the countries are connected through the earth‘s natural system. It is thus imperative that countries collaboratively working together to tackle and prevent the problems in order to warrant the successful implementation of sustainable development in the countries.
It is under the above mentioned spirit that the Environmental Technology and Management Conference (ETMC) were initiated. Held every 4 years since 1997 and with growing numbers of participant and expertise, the ETMC brings together policy makers, scientists, engineers, industries, and field expertise in environmental technology and management to discuss current and future local, regional, and global environmental issues. The ETMC is aimed to provide a forum to discuss and disseminate advances in research, technologies, and management, for improving the quality of the environment. Past participants of the conference include researchers, academic staffs, students, industries, public, and government officials.
With theme “Present and Future Challenges in Environment Sustainability”, the 4th ETMC is a global momentum for sustainable development that will lead to practical applications of the engineering and science of sustainability. Participating industries, academics, and governmental bodies will acquire information on the state of the art in environmental technology and management.
Plenary sessions of the 4th ETMC include presentations by Prof. Toshihiro Kitada, Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan and Prof. (Hon) Rachmat Witoelar, President’s Special Envoy for Climate Change Indonesia.
