Congratulations to the Poster Awards winners at the 26th Japan Society for Environmental Chemistry Annual meeting

The 26th Japan Society for Environmental Chemistry Annual meeting was held in Shizuoka, Japan from 7 – 9th June 2017. This year’s event was attended by 700 people, with 156 oral presentations and 180 poster presentations.

Since 1990, the JEC has been working for the sound management of environmental chemicals through development of analytical techniques and waste treatment, understanding geochemical cycling of elements and molecules, and risk assessment. In order to facilitate communication between researchers and stakeholders in different countries, the JEC has held international conferences for exchanging knowledge related to environmental pollution by micro-pollutants by cooperating with societies in foreign countries.
