Despite significant improvements, serious air pollution problems still persist worldwide and are becoming more and more complex and varying from one region to another. Science and technologies are required to provide solutions and alternatives. Therefore, a scientifically sound understanding is urgently needed to disclose the key reasons for regional complex air pollution problems and for the effective implementation of control measures.
The emphasis of the present conference will be on air quality improvement and future challenges where the science and new technologies development constitute the backbone for any proposed solutions. The meeting aims at bringing together scientists from different fields (chemistry physics, meteorology, epidemiology,…), industry and representatives of local governments (e.g., cities, regions…), in order to share their recent research progress relating to regional complex air pollution.
The Sino-French Conferences on Atmospheric Environment have been successfully held for five times since 2008 (Beijing, Orléans, Qingdao, Lyon, Xi’an), they have provided the opportunity for fruitful cooperation among interdisciplinary scientists. Three dedicated issues of Journal of Environmental Sciences have been published for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th workshops, the 5th is being prepared.
The 6th Sino-French Workshop will be held on September 10-12th, 2018 at Orleans, France, and will address different issues related to air quality improvement and future challenges and provide further forum for exchanging ideas about current research dealing with these issues.
While dedicated to Sino-French cooperation, this conference will be largely opened to participants from other countries, reflecting trans-boundary nature of atmospheric chemistry.
The topics to be addressed are:
• Pollution characteristics of primary and secondary air pollutants;
• Physical, chemical processes and mechanisms of air pollution;
• Eco-environment influence and health effects of air pollutants;
• Climatic effects of air pollutants;
• Source apportionment of primary and secondary air pollutants;
• Control techniques of primary air pollutants;
• Control strategy, policy and countermeasures of air pollution.
This conference is hosted by CNRS-ICARE and University of Orléans.
This Workshop is organised as part of the PIVOTS Program (Environmental Technology Innovation, Development and Optimisation Platforms).
