The Regional Conference on Chemical Engineering (RCChE) is an annual convention for members of ASEAN University Network/Southeast Asia Engineering Education Development Network (AUN/SEED-Net) to share the most updated research and technology in chemical engineering and related fields.

This year, Universitas Gadjah Mada is honoured to host the RCChE 2018 (the 11th RCChE). The conference will be held in the cultural city of Yogyakarta on November 7-8, 2018.

The 11th RCChE will bring together speakers and experts from AUN/SEED-Net’s Japanese supporting universities, ASEAN as well as international institutions, industries, researchers, and students. The conference will be a precious stage for participants to share the knowledge, experience and the state of the art research and technology. Furthermore, the venue could provide opportunities to enlarge collaboration among the participants.

The theme for RCChE 2018 is “Leveraging the Role of Chemical Engineering in Achieving Sustainable Development Goals through Natural Resource Based Industries”.

This year RCChE will be collaborating with Indonesian Solid Waste Forum (ISWF), for the 1st Annual Symposium on Solid Waste Refinery (1st ANSWER). ISWF is a national forum of Higher Educationin Indonesia pursuing in transforming campuses to be green and a milestone of ISWF to strengthen and expand the networks and to share knowledge among members and broader participants.
