The 1st Conference on Sustainable Process Systems Engineering (SPSE-2021) aims to bring the researchers, practicing engineers and scholars to a single platform where they can share their cutting-edge research on sustainable process engineering. Owing to the growing demand for energy and alarming situation of environmental pollution, development of sustainable processes is need of present day. Alternative energy resources need to be explored and processes need to be designed with very low or no waste emission to save our planet and our future generations. This conference will provide an opportunity for the researchers to discuss sustainability problems in chemical processes and recommend solutions to those problems without compromising on the quality of products. A book of Abstract and full-length papers (as conference proceedings) will be published. Selected papers will be published in Journal of Pakistan Institute of Chemical Engineers and Pakistan Journal of Computer and Information Systems.

1st Pakistan Congress on Membranes and Membrane Processes (PCOM 2021) will also be organized parallel to SPSE-2021. PCOM 2021 forum will provide an opportunity for membrane researchers, students and participants to interact, exchange experiences, best practices, ideas related to current and emerging issues associated with membrane technology. It will open new horizons for important networking, fruitful discussions and indeed will help for future directions.
