SPEA10- Almería (SPAIN) June 4th-8th – 2018

Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos Cabo de Gata Ciudad de Almería.



On behalf of the Organizing and Scientific Committees, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 10th European meeting on Solar Chemistry and Photocatalysis: Environmental Applications (SPEA10), held in Almería, Spain, on June 4th – 8th 2018.

Launched in 2000 and 2002 in Saint-Avold, France, the European meeting series SPEA progressively gained over the last years its renown among the most relevant meetings in solar chemistry and photocatalysis by travelling around Europe. Hosted in Barcelona (2004), Gran Canaria (2006), Palermo (2008), Prague (2010), Oporto (2012), Thessaloniki (2014), Strasbourg (2016) SPEA will take place in Almería in 2018.


SPEA10 will cover research fields as varied as:

    • Water treatment and disinfection
    • Air treatment
    • Green synthesis by solar photochemistry and photocatalysis
    • Novel materials for photochemistry and photocatalysis
    • Photocatalytic membranes, thin films
    • Functionalized textiles, surfaces and coatings
    • Interface with life science
    • Environmental photochemistry and photocatalysis
    • Experimental standardization and commercial applications
    • Modeling and mechanistic studies in photochemistry and photocatalysis
    • Process fundamentals
    • Photocatalytic hybrid systems
    • Photocatalytic, Photochemical and Photosynthetic systems for H2 production and CO2 utilization

SPEA10 Meeting

Through plenary and keynote lectures, oral presentations, poster talks and poster sessions, the ambition of the four-day SPEA10 meeting is to report on the most advanced research progresses in environmental photocatalysis and photochemistry, and to pave the way for future research and challenges.

For facing actual challenges and addressing major societal concerns on environment, sustainable chemistry and energy, SPEA10 will offer a lively and convivial share platform to senior and younger researchers, PhD students as well as companies involved in Solar chemistry and Photocatalysis.
