Hong Kong, which is renowned as the Events Capital of Asia,

has developed into one of the worlds top financial centres.
Notorious for its expansive skyline and deep natural harbour,
its identity as a cosmopolitan centre where east meets west
is reflected in its cuisine, cinema, music and traditions.
November-Decembers will be the best time to visit Hong Kong.

ASIA-PACIFIC Conference on
Biotechnology for


Waste Conversion

Growing urban population and industrialization in Asia-Pacific

region posing serious environmental issues including solid waste
disposal, demand for N-P fertilizers, soil erosions due to inadequate
carbon return, greenhouse gas emissions and high-dependency for
fossil-fuels/energy. All these issues are interlinked and required
collective efforts from scientists, engineers, policy makers and
non-profit organizations to develop region specific management
plans to achieve sustainable waste management. Developing best
waste recycling practices by integrated biotechnology will be a
key to tackle the multi-dimensional issues. But, the current
situation in Asia-Pacific region is not very appealing, while the
technologies are not well integrated to meet the requirements and
to reach the goal of sustainability. Although the waste is considered
as a resource, it is not much exploited for potential bio-products
development or bio-energy recovery in Asia-Pacific region. Therefore, a multidimensional approach and efficient knowledge
transfers are required to deal with the alarming situation. In recent
years, the bio-refinery concepts in the field of waste management
to produce bio-fuels, -polymers, -diesel, -nanomaterials and
-fertilizers are in limelight from both developed and developing
countries. Therefore, this conference focuses on sharing the developments and assessing the advancements in biotechnology related
to waste conversion and applicability for Asia-Pacific countries.

Parallel sessions will be organized to accommodate large number

of oral presentations. Keynote and plenary lectures will be given by
experts and related authorities on 10 specialized themes as
1. Organic waste sources and recycling trends in Asia-pacific Region
2. Biotechnology and molecular-engineering for waste
3. Bio-fuels and bio-products from waste resources
4. Greenhouse gas emissions and mitigations in waste
management sectors
5. Integrated biotechnologies for novel product developments
