Sustainable development, industrial ecology, eco-efficiency and green chemistry are leading the next generation of materials, products and process development and progress. Green composite materials play an important role applying in the field of high strengh, light weight, recycling and regeneration. In this context, we are glad to welcome IGCG-10(The 10th International Conference on Green Composites) being organized in Quanzhou, China.

 

Quanzhou was China's major port for foreign traders, who knew it as Zaiton,during the 11th through 14th centuries. It was visited by both Marco Polo and Ibn Battuta; both travelers praised it as one of the most prosperous and glorious cities in the world. It was the naval base from which the Mongol attacks on Japan and Java were primarily launched and a cosmopolitan center with Buddhist and Hindu temples, Islamic mosques, and Christian churches, including a Catholic cathedral and Franciscan monasteries. A failed revolt prompted a massacre of the city's foreign communities in 1357. Economic dislocations—including piracy and an imperial overreaction to it during the Ming and Qing—reduced its prosperity, with Japanese trade shifting to Ningbo and Zhapu and other foreign trade restricted to Guangzhou. Quanzhou became an opium-smuggling center in the 19th century but the siltation of its harbor long reduced its capacity for trade by larger ships.
