ERM to share global technical insights on issues and their solutions at A&WMA’s Annual Conference and Exhibition 2010
17 June 2010
ERM will be participating in this year’s Air and Waste Management Association’s (AWMA) Annual Conference and Exposition from June 22-25 in Calgary, Canada.
ERM’s air and climate change experts are both leading and participating in the development of nine presentations, which will focus on topics such as energy recovery from landfill and BioGas systems to developing and verifying GHG emissions and managing waste.
Ken Weiss, Managing Partner of ERM’s Air and Climate Change Practice for the Americas notes: “The challenges of addressing Air Quality and Climate issues are going to continue to grow and organizations need to be aware of what these are and the way in which they can be addressed.
AWMA has outreaches to over 8000 environmental professionals in 65 countries and therefore provides an incredible network to ensure we are continually developing our knowledge and expertise in these areas critical to our future. This event provides attendees with the opportunity to address some of the most challenging elements of those areas and build sustainable solutions for their businesses. The technical program will explore a range of related issues with the topics we are presenting on listed below.”
Technical presentations by ERM professionals include:
- Waste-to-Energy: Pros and Cons for Sustainability
- New Source Review (NSR) Reform: Recent Developments and Issues
- Implementing NSR: State and Local Agency Issues and Differences
- Practical Environmental Management Systems Lessons
- Landfill and BioGas Systems: Energy Recovery, Gas Treatment, and Utilization
- Developing and Verifying Greenhouse Gas Emissions
- Biomass Gasification and Waste-to-Energy Applications
