Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences (RCEES/CAS), China

Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences (RCEES/CAS), formerly Institute of Environmental Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, was founded in 1975. In 1986, it was amalgamated with Research Center of Ecology, CAS, and was renamed as Research Center for Eco- Environmental Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Since 1996, RCEES was under the jurisdiction of both Chinese Academy of Sciences and State Environmental Protection Administration.

The main research areas of RCEES include environmental chemistry, environmental engineering, and systems ecology. Aiming to realize the interpenetration of environmental chemistry, environmental engineering, ecology, geoscience and other disciplines, by taking the advantage of the multidisciplinary research to solve the major environmental and ecological problems at the local, regional, national as well as global levels.

Since 1975, RCEES has carried out a large number of research projects granted by the central government CAS, and local governments as well as many international collaborative projects, obtaining both nationally and internationally recognized achievements. RCEES has also acted as a training center in environmental sciences and ecology in China. RCEES has significantly contributed to the establishment and development of eco-environmental sciences and technology, especially the environmental chemistry and systems ecology in China, and to environmental pollution control and eco-environmental protection and sustainable development in China and become a nationally leading and internationally recognized research institute in the field of eco-environmental sciences and technology.

There are 308 staffs in RCEES, including 3 academicians, 48 research professors. There are 8 research laboratories and one center for information and publication, in which there are one state key laboratory (State Key Laboratory of Environmental Aquatic Quality) and two CAS key laboratories (Key Laboratory of Environmental Chemistry and Ecological Toxicology, and Key Laboratory of Systems Ecology). Research Center for National Status, CAS is also at RCEES.
