Chem-Conflux20 is a multi-disciplinary international conference that intends to cover the thrust areas concerning sustainable development of energy and environment. Energy is essential to the society and it has made the considerable impact on the environment as a consequence of the large scale and pervasive nature of energy related human activities. Despite the fact that energy and environment concerns were earlier local in nature, e.g. issues relating to extraction, transport or noxious emissions, they are currently regional and global such as acid rain and the greenhouse effect. These issues have now become dominating political issues and the subject of international focus and regulation. Therefore, this multidisciplinary international conference is being organized to understand, exchange and disseminate the ideas relating to the energy and environment with the aim of promoting the sustainability. Keeping these facts in view, the present conference is designed to enlighten the participants about latest development of sustainable technologies for energy and environment through Plenary & keynote lectures and oral and poster presentations.
