Emissions Reduction Technology Forum

The International Society of Automation (ISA)  has announced that its 11th Annual ISA Fugitive Emissions Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) Symposium: A Decade of Unprecedented Success—and Growing Strong, will be held 17–19 May 2011 at the Astor Crowne Plaza Hotel in New Orleans (LA US).

As part of the symposium, an Emissions Reduction Technology Forum will be held on 19 May. Held for the second time, the forum offers information exchange about technologies specifically intended to reduce VOC emissions. This year’s forum will answer the question, “How can facilities comply and achieve ever lower emissions levels?” The forum brings together veterans from both sides of the table, industry and government, for an informative examination of two low-leak technologies for valves.

During the forum, sealing professionals will present their low-leak technology solutions for reducing fugitive emissions and preventing leaks. Following the presentations, an expert panel of end-users and representatives from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will discuss the feasibility of implementation, testing results, emissions performance, costs, and other concerns.

In addition to the Emissions Reduction Technology Forum, ISA’s LDAR Symposium will include a full day of sessions, an exhibit area, ISA LDAR training, a reception, lunches, and several networking opportunities.

Growing every year since its inception, ISA’s LDAR Symposium has, over the past decade, rapidly become the air compliance industry’s only conference whose sole purpose is to share best practices for Leak Detection and Repair and Directed Inspection and Maintenance programs. In addition to industry professionals who present their expertise and best practices, regulatory agencies use this symposium to announce upcoming changes to compliance requirements, and to share findings from recent enforcement actions.

This long-running air compliance industry conference is recommended for LDAR program administrators, coordinators and supervisors, air compliance managers, environmental engineers, maintenance managers, reliability engineers, consultants, monitoring services contractors, and other vendors who provide products or services to the LDAR community.

Registration for the event is open, with online pre-registration extending through 12 May 2011.
