The Society of Chemical Industry (SCI) Australia International Group grew out of the former Society of Chemical Industry of Victoria (SCIV), which was established in 1900. The merger between the two took place in 1999.

The international Society of Chemical Industry (SCI) is a registered charitable organisation with individual members in over 70 countries. SCI states that since its foundation, its principal objective "has been to further the application of chemistry and related sciences for the public benefit, through our events and publications."

The Australia International Group has over 140 members, half of which live in Victoria, which SCI describes as the traditional site of the chemical industry in Australia. A further twenty percent of members reside in New South Wales and with the balance spread across the country.

The Australia International Group aims to offer a variety of activities to provide networking opportunities for its members. These include:

  • lectures and seminars
  • plant visits
  • dinners; and 
  • other social events.

Key activities of the group include the Plant of the Year Award and annual Student Prizes to encourage excellence in undergraduate chemistry and chemical engineering students.

The Committee meets monthly, and is actively looking for new members to play an active role in developing what SCI affectionately refers to as the 'Antipodean Group' of the Society.
