Green Technology is vital for sustainable development to meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Development of Green and Sustainable Technologies enable significant savings in the use of energy and materials, substitute the use of non-renewable, non-biodegradable or extractive resources to renewable, biodegradable and/or restorative inputs and reduce or prevent emissions, contaminations and negative environmental impacts. Previous Conferences organized by the Center of Environment and Green Technology (CEGT) of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) in 2014 and 2017 discussed research findings in the various thrust areas of Green Technology. This 3rd International Symposium on Green and Sustainable Technology (ISGST 2019) will provide a platform for dissemination of knowledge and latest development in “Green Technology for Sustainable Future”.
ISGST2019 aims to bring together more than 200 leading experts in Green and Sustainable Technology. The Symposium would provide a common forum for researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners not only in Malaysia but globally to present their works in the latest Technological developments and applications of Green and Sustainable Technology. The general public will gain knowledge into how Green and Sustainable Technology could be employed as alternative technologies that could help us to meet the growing needs of society without damaging or depleting natural resources on earth and prevent any further damage to health and environment. Sharing of knowledge and expertise on Green and Sustainable Technology can benefit our environment and truly protect our planet.

The Centre for Environment and Green Technology (CEGT) under the Faculty of Engineering and Green Technology (FEGT) organized the International Symposium on Green and Sustainable Technology (ISGST) at Perak Campus from 30 September to 3 October 2014.
The symposium was attended by UTAR President Ir Prof Academician Dato Dr Chuah Hean Teik, Faculty of Engineering and Green Technology Dean Dr Yap Vooi Voon, Centre for Environment and Green Technology (CEGT) Chairperson Engr Dr Lee Seng Chyan, chairperson of organising committee Prof Ir Dr Ong Kok Seng, UTAR staff, students, members from the academia and industry. The four-day symposium featured keynote lectures and presentations on five research areas, namely, Carbon, Energy, Transport, Buildings, Waste Management and Nanotechnology.
In his opening remarks, Prof Chuah thanked the organising committee, sponsors and participants for making the event a success. He also accorded his appreciation to Prof Dr Georg Scharfenberg, who came all the way from Regensburg University of Applied Sciences, Germany, to attend the symposium. He also mentioned that it is heartening to see that our students practice green living by cycling to the campus. Together we can put our act in a simple solution that conserves Mother Nature. I hope that this conference will nurture new ideas, collaborations and innovations to better advance green causes.
