Learn the latest on thermal treatment technologies and hazardous waste policy and solutions

Now in its 38
th 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. Presentations will address various aspects of waste stream management using thermal treatment processes, and provide useful insight into associated costs, risks, and impacts.

New topics added for 2021 include PFAS sampling, methods, and laboratory analysis, waste/compliance impacts of health pandemics and natural disasters, plastics to energy/closed loop processing, and comprehensive performance testing (CPT). 

COVID-19 Update: With the IT3/HWC Conference several months away, and based on the latest science and information at hand, we are still planning to hold this conference in West Palm Beach, FL, January 27-28, 2021. As the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve, we are assessing developments regularly to ensure we are positioned to respond in a manner that is best for our attendees and participants. The health and safety of our attendees, staff, vendors, and volunteers is our top priority and we will ensure the fullest precautions are taken to protect your well-being by working closely with public health officials, the venue, and vendors.

Abstracts are still being accepted through October 1 and we encourage all interested authors to submit their work for a platform presentation regardless of your current travel situation. In the event that we are required to cancel or modify the on-site conference, accepted manuscripts and presentations will be recognized through alternate presentation formats and may be included in the conference proceedings published after the event. We will modify the nature of the conference as seems best based on any restrictions at the time.

Abstract Deadline: October 1, 2020
