Particulate Matter Control Regulations and Technologies: Overview and Trends

Particulate Matter Control Regulations and Technologies: Overview and Trends
Thursday, December 16, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm ET

Particulate Matter (PM) is a criteria air pollutant subject to a range of federal and state regulations. The U.S. EPA recently announced that it will reconsider the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for PM, which will likely drive future reductions at existing and new facilities.

This webinar will provide you important information to design and/or review PM air pollution control technologies, estimate associated equipment costs, and address the permitting, monitoring and compliance related challenges to control equipment for major stationary sources. The presenters include a recognized panel of regulatory and technology experts with multiple years of experience in the field of air pollution control technologies and regulatory compliance. This webinar will be useful for operators of power plants, cement plants, and other industrial plants who are responsible for managing PM emissions from point sources.
