The Air and Waste Management Association’s 111th Annual Conference and Exhibition (ACE) will be held June 25-28 in Hartford and draw over 1200 environmental scientists from around the world to discuss the current state of the industry and solutions for the future in a neutral forum. Touted as the most comprehensive conference on environmental technology and regulation, this year’s conference, “Charting the Future: Environment, Energy and Health”, will examine how leaders in industry, government, and academia can work together to advance the science of air and waste management.

 

William Wehrum, Assistant Administrator of the US EPA Office of Air and Radiation, will open the Keynote Plenary Session on the New EPA Strategic Plan on Monday, June 25 at 2:45 pm in the Ballroom of the Connecticut Convention Center. Additional keynote speakers include Janet McCabe, Assistant Professor at the Indiana University School of Law and former Acting Administrator of the US EPA Office of Air and Radiation, and Roger Kranenburg, Vice President, Energy Strategy and Policy for Eversource.

 

The event will be held at the Connecticut Convention Center, and includes 300 technical presentations, 40 panels, over 70 exhibitors, plus tours and events. “There is no environmental program available that can match ACE for the breadth of air and waste topics addressed by key personnel in their fields,” said Chris Nelson, A&WMA President. Platform and panel sessions will cover current environmental topics including sustainability, the energy sector, waste, and a range of air quality topics, plus a track dedicated to regulatory, compliance and legal issues.

 

Technical tours include the Hartford Landfill, Doosan Fuel Cells, and the ISO New England Backup Control Center. Five professional development courses cover modeling, compliance, and legal fundamentals and career development and networking events will be held throughout the week.

 

The conference is supported by 37 international, national and local sponsors, including 3M, who is the diamond sponsor and NASA, who is the platinum sponsor.

 

Conference registration is open to anyone and will be available online until Thursday, June 21 and onsite beginning Sunday, June 24 at the Convention Center.
