The 13th International Conference on Environmental Catalysis (ICEC2025) will be held on June 2-5 (Monday-Thursday), 2025 at "SARACEN SANDS HOTEL & CONGRESS CENTRE" in Isola delle Femmine (Palermo, Sicily - Italy). The conference follows the ICEC2022 that was held at Kansai University in Osaka, Japan from July 30 to August 2, 2022. The conference is the major event in environmental catalysis.

After three decades, in a deep transition period to a new low-carbon economy, ICEC back to Italy to discuss the future of environmental catalysis.
The conference sub-title is "Addressing the new challenges", because aims to redefine the fundamental and applied research on environmental catalysis to address the 2050 challenges.

The congress is organized by ERIC aisbl (European Research Institute of Catalysis) in collaboration with the Italian Group of Catalysis (GIC) and the Division of Industrial Chemistry of the Italian Chemical Society (SCI), and the support of the University of Messina and Politecnico Milano (Italy).

ICEC 2025 will be held in Saracen Sands Hotel located at Isola delle Femmine, about 15 minutes from the airport of Palermo “Falcone Borsellino”, about 45 minutes from the Trapani Birgi airport and only 15 minutes from the city center of one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean - Palermo, the Arab-Norman capital, cradle of many cultures with a priceless charm, is famous for its traditions and food.  
The Hotel is in a unique location, overlooking the wonderful bay with crystal clear water. The surrounding landscape, characterized by the Saracen tower of Isola delle Femmine, shines among cobalt blue colors and the sparkling white beach. Saracen Sands Hotel offers a brand new Charme & Relax Wellness Area.
The 237 rooms of the Hotel have a typical Mediterranean design with Sicilian stylistic references.
The Congress Centre, integrated in the Hotel, has 14 meeting rooms, up to 1000 participants. There is ample space to

Conference Theme
Fundamental and applied research on environmental catalysis and catalysts to address the 2050 challenges (a resilient and zero-carbon society). Topics will include, but are not limited to:
  • Automotive and stationary emission control
  • Air cleaning and combustion
  • Water treatment
  • Sustainable and clean energy production and transport
  • Catalysis to electrify the chemical production
  • Green chemistry and biomass transformation, renewable resources conversion
  • Circular economy
  • CO2 utilization and recycling
  • H2 storage and transportation, green H2 production, hydrogen vectors
  • Photocatalysis and photoelectrocatalytic approaches, solar energy utilization
  • Advanced process with electrocatalysis and plasma utilization
  • Fundamental advances in understanding catalysis
  • Multiscale modeling and advanced simulation aspects

It will be a 4 full days conference, from Monday to Thursday, ending with the banquet. Depending on the number of submissions up to four parallel sessions are planned. The scientific program will consist of Plenary and Keynote lectures, chosen to highlight new trends and opportunities for environmental catalysis, and orals/short orals/poster presentation, lumped into mini simposia, several of them in collaboration with main companies in the area (industrial sessions). Awards for best posters and other ways to valorize them are in progress.
An exhibition area is planned. Under discussion the possibility to have  thematic issues dedicated to the conference by major journals in the area (AppCat B, J Energy Chem., etc.).

The social programme will include Welcome Party, ending Banquet and a Sicilian evening.

Key Dates  (preliminary)
  • Conference:                                       2-5 June, 2025
  • Deadline for early-bird registration:     15 April, 2025
  • Deadline for abstract submission:       15 Nov.2024
