Special Session S1. APCChE–UNIDO Special Symposium — Inclusive and sustainable chemical industry in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (Open to the public)

To make contributions to SDGs, it is essential to discuss the vision of sustainable society meeting the condition for each region, design the customized system, and make actions. This symposium calls for presentations on the local issues and how chemical engineering could address them especially in Southeast, South, and West Asian regions and on the environmental and energy technologies. Presentations on case studies are highly encouraged. Keynote lectures will be made by UNIDO, investors, and/or leading researchers. This session will be organized jointly with the Students' Program on “Research proposal for SDGs from youth.”

Each group will select one of the following topics and write it down on a large sheet of paper on each table before going for a coffee break:
1. How to contribute to SDGs through Chemical Engineering?
2. List up research topics of some members in your group are working on and categorize them into multiple SDGs and suggest how to improve research topics to achieve more SDGs.
3. What are the problems with plastics and how to solve them?
4. What will happen with the large-scale PV power generation after 20 years and how shall we get prepared for it?
