ICHMET is a unique event in the environmental science congress calendar. It does not focus on either a specific metal, or on a specific environmental compartment or medium, but is aimed to provide a unique platform for discussing and presenting state-of-the-art research activities to a broad international scientific community.  ICHMET does not concentrate on solely on sources, or transport or remediation, instead it provides a multidisciplinary and trans-disciplinary forum where an individual's or group's expertise can become part of a broader context.
