Now in it's 37th 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, and climate change.

Papers and presentations will address various aspects of waste stream management using thermal treatment processes, and provide useful insight into associated costs, risks, and impacts. Practical applications of technical and scientific advances will be presented by international subject matter experts for a broad range of institutional and industrial wastes and waste treatment issues. Sessions will focus on technology advances, regulatory issues, waste-to-energy applications, greenhouse gas inventories, residuals treatment, climate change, and related topics including how these affect public perception and developing governmental policies.

Call for Abstracts open!  Deadline April 1, 2019

Thermal treatment technologies include incinerators, kilns and furnaces, thermal oxidizers, commercial and industrial boilers, gasifiers, industrial dryers, fluid bed reactors, and more.
