EPA to Sponsor Industrial Wastewater Conference

The U. S. EPA has established effluent limitation guidelines and pretreatment standards for more than 50 industries.

The U. S. EPA has established effluent limitation guidelines and pretreatment standards for more than 50 industries. Over the last 30 years, these industries have accumulated much expertise and experience in wastewater treatment process design and operation to comply with these regulations. Vanderbilt University and the U. S. EPA are co-sponsoring a technical conference to provide a forum to share these experiences and lessons learned.

Representatives of academia, government, and industry have been invited to examine and discuss industry trends and technology advances as they affect regulatory compliance and sustainable growth. Participants will have the opportunity to both provide and obtain information on state of the art techniques for addressing their water pollution control activities. These may include improvements to traditional wastewater treatment processes as well as process changes and best management practices that lead to reductions in pollutant generation.

Registration for the conference is required. For more information, including registration and specific topics, visit the Vanderbilt Internet web page at http://frontweb.vuse.vanderbilt.edu/bat/
