About the Conference

One of the major challenges of the Chemistry sector is chemical waste. Chemical waste can be broadly categorized into three types: innocuous aqueous waste, low-risk chemical waste, and hazardous chemical waste. Although RA 6969 deals mainly with hazardous chemical waste, it is the social responsibility of the chemistry sector to responsibly and appropriately handle all types of chemical waste, as these may pose risks to human health and the environment.

There is a wide range of types of generators of chemical waste, from small- and medium-scale enterprises (SMSEs), high schools and universities, R&D institutions, chemical laboratories, commercial establishments, and large industries. All generators of chemical waste must be properly trained regarding the handling, storage, transport and ultimate treatment of chemical waste. An important component in this chain are the waste transporters and treaters. Chemical analytical laboratories play a critical role in the characterization of chemical waste. However, since chemical analysis itself generates chemical waste, improved methods of chemical analysis should be adopted that can achieve the same results with less chemical waste.

In this regard, the Integrated Chemists of the Philippines (ICP) is organizing the third annual National Conference of Chemical Laboratories (NCCL) on 16-17 October 2019 at the Century Park Hotel in Manila. The theme of this year’s NCCL is “Formulating Solutions to Chemical Wastes: The Chemistry Sector’s Social Responsibility”. This conference will cover the relevant aspects of RA 6969, best practices in the minimization, handling, and storage of chemical waste, accredited waste transporters and treaters. The Board of Chemistry will share observations on the status of chemical waste management and its commitment to Chemical Waste Management as the focus of its Social Responsibility Program.

Who Should Attend The 3rd NCCL?

This conference is targeted to chemists and chemical technicians working as laboratory analysts, researchers, among others. Laboratory managers and owners are highly encouraged to attend to keep them updated on the appropriate procedure for the safe disposal of their laboratory’s chemical wastes. Other professionals such as chemical engineers and the like, and academic faculty and staff are most welcome to attend.

Sponsorship and Exhibition

The 3rd NCCL is an ideal venue for companies to promote their products and/or services to the event participants through a dedicated industry exhibition area. Likewise, the 3rd NCCL is open for sponsorships from companies.
