Sponsored byDow is the world’s leading materials science company with an ambition to become the most innovative, customer centric, inclusive and sustainable. Dow’s portfolio of plastics, industrial intermediates, coatings and silicones businesses delivers a broad range of differentiated science-based products and solutions for its customers in high-growth market segments, such as packaging, infrastructure, mobility and consumer care. Dow was founded in 1897 by Herbert Henry Dow and has started its business in Thailand since 1970, then expanded through a joint venture with SCG in 1987. Dow has started its sustainability journey in 1995 and growing our commitment overtime. Currently, Dow is embarking on the third stage of sustainability journey by rethinking business model and collaborating to grow impact. Dow sustainability targets in this stage are to ‘Protect the climate, Stop the waste and Close the loop’ focusing on carbon neutrality, circular economy/recycling, climate protection and safer material use. People and new science-and technology-based solutions become a key factor to tackle the sustainability challenges. In Thailand, Dow has various initiatives to tackle world challenges for sustainability, such as Public-Private Partnership for Plastics and Waste Management (PPP Plastics), Recycled Plastic Road, Dow for Sustainable Industry, International Coastal Clean-up and Dow Chemistry Classroom, ect. In this session, Dow aims to share and demonstrate actions to solve the sustainability world challenges. Innovation or research on topics related to Dow’s focuses from academic and industrial sector are very welcome.
Sponsored byNew high records of temperature have been reported in news around the world recently. It is the real and direct impact of the global warming issue. World leaders have agreed to limit global warming to 2ºC above pre-industrial temperature – the goal of the Paris Climate Agreement. Carbon emission is one of the key contributions to this problem and there are many actions that need to do in order to reach the goal. Adopting new technologies is also an option to accelerate the decarbonization pathway. SCG has already committed to becoming a net-zero carbon company by 2050. We are not only focused on implement available technologies but put tremendous effort into the science community to develop a more effective decarbonization innovation. We aim to foster the cooperation between academics and industries to develop new technology to bring Thailand to be net-zero carbon country in the near future. This symposium on “Advance in Science and Technology to Accelerate Decarbonization for Industries” aims to gather outstanding researches and implementation in the industries coverage of all aspects related to renewable energy, energy storage, carbon capture, storage, and utilization. This symposium will bring together high-quality research on the different aspects of decarbonization technology including current status and remaining challenges. Topics include, but not are limited to:
