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: Due to the continuing situation with COVID-19, we are currently evaluating the feasibility of delivering this conference in person in 2021 and are working with the venue and local health officials to ensure the safety of our participants and attendees. Please stay tuned as we work through the details. We will update the website and notify all participants and attendees when the decision is made. 

Abstracts are still being accepted 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.
