International Conference On Patchouli and Essential Oil Research Innovation 2023 (IConPEORI-2023)

Universitas Syiah Kuala

October 18, 2023 – October 19, 2023

The essential oil business has grown significantly over the past decade and has not slowed down since the onset of COVID-19. In fact, it seems more and more people are turning to this oil for its calming, immune-boosting and disinfecting properties to help deal with pandemic stress.

Patchouli essential oil derived from the Pogostemon cablin Benth plant is in high demand and has wide applications in flavors, fragrances, cosmetics, luxury products, the food and beverage industry, and the pharmaceutical industry. The versatile nature and applications of essential oils highlight their importance in the global market.

As the largest patchouli oil exporting country, Indonesia has an advantage over the global patchouli oil market with focused programs to promote new patchouli cultivation strategies with its wide geographic area and the oil processing innovation technology is expected to become the largest patchouli oil producer in the post-pandemic world.

We are proud to invite national and international academia, researchers, policymakers, professionals and other stakeholders to join us at the International Conference On Patchouli and Essential Oil Research Innovation 2023 (IConPEORI-2023) which will be held on 18-19 September 2023 in Banda Aceh, Indonesia. The conference is hosted by ARC PUI PT Nilam, Universitas Syiah Kuala (USK). The aims are to elaborate research and innovation between academicians and practitioners around the world in the agriculture and bioindustry of essential oil fields, and to exhibit the history and the culture of Aceh. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Banda Aceh.
