The Global climate change argument pales in comparison to the consequences the world faces, if realistic solutions are not found to address the world energy crisis. Green Technology encompasses a continuously evolving group of methods, materials and techniques for generating energy and non-toxic products. The present expectation is that this field will bring innovations and changes in daily life, of similar magnitude, to the information technology predominance over the last two decades.
Protection of the environment is needed from various human activities. Waste, pollution, loss of biodiversity, introduction of invasive species, release of genetically modified organisms and toxics are some of the issues relating to environmental protection. Environmental technology is the application of environmental science and green chemistry to conserve the natural environment and resources, and to curb the negative impacts of human involvement.
Sustainable development is the core of environmental technologies. Renewable energy sources can only be harvested when and where the wind blows, the sun shines, the tides flow and the waves roll. However the new alternate energy sources will require only the cooperative effort of many disciplines of engineering, science and architecture.
GTEC 2011 will provide a unique opportunity for the academic and industrial communities to address new challenges, share solutions and discuss research prospects for the future conservation. Technical topics of the conference include all areas of Green technology and Environmental Conservation.
