Call for Abstracts by December 6, 2021 for 2022 IT3/HWC Conference – May 5-6, 2022 West Palm Beach, FL

Now in its 39th year, this conference provides a forum for the discussion of state-of-the-art technical information, regulations, and public policy on thermal treatment technologies and their relationship to air emissions, greenhouse gases, sustainability, and climate change. Presentations will address various aspects of waste management using thermal treatment processes, including a waste-to-energy approach, and provide useful insight into associated costs, risks, and impacts.

New topics added for 2022 include waste-to-energy operations, economics, best practices, and alternatives to thermal treatment through resource recovery, green fuels, and ways to a zero-carbon footprint.

Abstract Deadline: December 6, 2021

Cumulative Impact Analyses (CIA) for Certain Categories of Air Quality Permits

ALL4 has seen interest and activity around Cumulative Impacts Analyses (CIA) for air emissions sources lately, both at the federal and state level.  For example, the Governor of Massachusetts, Charlie Baker, signed “An Act Creating a Next Generation Roadmap for Massachusetts Climate Policy” into law on March 26, 2021.  This act requires the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) “to evaluate and seek public comment on the incorporation of cumulative impact analyses in the assessment and identification of certain categories of permits and approvals.”  Additionally, the Act requires the Secretary of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) to develop regulations to guide similar CIAs to be conducted as part of environmental impact reports (EIR) submitted to the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) office.  MassDEP held its first official stakeholder meeting to discuss and seek input on the new provisions for CIA on August 31, 2021.
