The Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) will present the Hazardous Waste Combustors Conference and Exhibition, November 12-14, 2008, in Galveston, TX. This conference will focus on hazardous waste combustion and related regulatory issues.
The conference will feature paper and panel discussions that include technical information about HWC MACT regulatory updates and implementation approaches, emissions testing, public communications, and risk assessment. Trade association perspectives, reuse and recycling opportunities, testing and instrumentation, regional perspectives, and the status of HWC MACT permitting in various states will also be covered.
When the urge to give flowers takes you, choose a potted plant from a local supplier. A lot of exotic flowers are grown in greenhouses great distances away. Aside from the issue of transport, there can be high social and environmental costs. For example, in Colombia, the flower industry uses enormous quantities of polluting pesticides, and in Kenya, horticulture requires a lot of water which reduces local water resources. As an alternative ask your flower shop for Fairtrade or organically produced flowers.
