As the Chair of the IWA Specialist Group on “Odours and Volatile Emissions” and the Chair of the Conference Organizing Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to Hangzhou, China to join the 8th IWA Odours and VOC/Air Emissions Conference. This will be the first IWA Odour Conference to be held in China in this series, after previous events in Australia, Singapore, Spain, Brazil, USA, France (cancelled due to Terrorist attack) and Poland.

The increased urbanization all over the world during the past years especially in China is now facing more frequently air quality issues. Odours and VOC(Volatile Organic Compound) emissions also present as key factors for planning and selecting locations for sustainable production in livestock & industry and for sustainable management of waste and wastewater. The novel cost-effective solutions are therefore not only relevant to Odour/VOC abatement and mitigation, but also to odour management as the key tool of securing the minimized impacts to local community. The Conference Organizing Committee and I look forward to welcoming you to this enjoyable event and to meeting all of you personally in Hangzhou in October 2019.
