By taking part in this conference, you will enhance your understanding of the potential regulatory compliance requirements to implement the emission reductions.

Course Outline
Industry will be facing increasingly stringent requirements to reduce air emissions to meet current regulations and the increasing pressure coming from enhanced public awareness on Global Warming. What will be the new requirements and what should we be doing now is the focus of the two-day conference which brings together industry, environmental consultants, and the regulators to envision the upcoming requirements for the different industries, the available technologies and their best use with the objective of increasing industry?s preparedness to face the impending changes. By taking part in this conference, you will enhance your understanding of the potential regulatory compliance requirements to implement the emission reductions.

  • To increase industry?s awareness of the upcoming changes in the requirements for reducing air emissions 
  • To familiarize industry with the latest available technologies for achieving the required emission reductions
  • To review current changes to air quality legislation/standards and its effects on industry
  • To familiarize industry with the latest available technologies for emissions quantification and abatement
Who Should Attend Plant managers and plant engineers in process industries, particularly in oil and gas as well and in  power plants, individuals working in maintenance departments, engineering and environmental consultants and their employees, environment and health and safety managers in industries and federal, provincial and local government regulatory monitoring and approval personnel engaged in transportation, environmental affairs.

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
