WEF, A&WMA to Present Odor and Air Pollutants Conference
The Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) and the Water Environment Federation (WEF), in cooperation with the North Carolina Water Environment Association, will present “Odors and Air Pollutants 2010,” March 21-24, 2010, in Charlotte, N.C.
As communities grow in size and population, more municipal, industrial, and agricultural facilities are confronted with issues related to odors and air emissions. Held every two years, this conference will bring together environmental professionals from around the world to discuss the latest developments in odor and air emissions management, foster informed decision-making, and encourage the use of innovative technologies.
"Odor impacts from a wastewater treatment plant are the primary measure of an operations' success," said Ray Porter, chair of WEF's Air Quality and Odor Control Committee. "This year's conference provides an excellent forum to learn about the latest developments and share knowledge on this evolving and important topic.”
Based on real-life experiences and lessons learned, the technical program will include oral presentations, interactive discussions, workshops, and exhibits on odor control planning and monitoring; methods of sampling; measuring and estimating emissions; design of odor control systems; biological odor control; collection systems odor and corrosion; sustainability and greenhouse gases; dispersion modeling; and innovative technologies, operations, and agriculture.
Practitioners, engineers, research and development staff, scientists, facility owners and operators, teachers and professors, public administrators, regulatory agencies, collection systems managers, consultants, maintenance staff, division managers, and executive managers are encouraged to attend.
