The Industrial Chemistry Conference is presented by the Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC), the Canadian Society for Chemical Technology (CSCT) and the Association of the Chemical Profession of Alberta (ACPA). The conference is designed for individuals working in the analysis community: chemists, chemical technologists, chemical engineers, managers and researchers working in government, private and industrial laboratories, and students and recent graduates.
Special attention will be given to the oil and gas industries including upstream (exploration, production and mining), midstream (transportation) and downstream (upgrading and refining) operations. The first day and a half will feature a technical program covering two streams: Process Chemistry and Environmental Chemistry, and will explore regulatory matters, novel sampling methods and applications including analysis of drinking water, wastewater, soils/sediments and others. The second day and a half will be dedicated to professional development courses/workshops. Speakers will include researchers and practitioners from government, industry and academia.
