SCS professionals, including Mike McLaughlin and Eric Nelson, will be attending the World of Coal Ash (WOCA) Conference again this year. WOCA 2017 is a joint meeting combining separate symposia previously held by the American Coal Ash Association and the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research.
WOCA also incorporates ‘satellite’ meetings sponsored by government and organizations, such as SCS Engineers, as well as educational short courses.
WOCA 2017 offers a wide variety of CCB/CCP related topics guaranteed to enhance your knowledge. Presentations are valuable for both industry newcomers and veterans alike, and will encompass a wide variety of topics, including the utilization of coal ash and flue gas desulfurization materials as well as sustainable projects using CCPs, emerging technologies, general ash management and disposal, mercury-related topics, recent research and specific case studies, international activities, and regulatory topics from the local, state and federal perspectives.
SCS Engineers will be presenting on these topics:
Steven C. Lamb and Floyd Cotter – Selecting the Right Closure Cap Option for Your Surface Impoundment or CCR Landfill – Learn the advantages and disadvantages of emerging alternative capping options, and understand how different regulatory agencies are viewing alternative capping options.
Jeff Marshall – Mitigating Hydrogen Sulfide Issues at Coal Combustion Residuals and Municipal Solid Waste Co-disposal Sites – Learn about the biological, chemical and physical conditions necessary for FGD decomposition and hydrogen sulfide generation. Marshall will explore technologies that remove and treat hydrogen sulfide from landfill gas and present recommendations for reducing the potential for FGD decomposition at co-disposal facilities.
Eric Nelson and Lindsay Motl – Working Through Location Restrictions to Expand the Ottumwa Midland Landfill – The final Coal Combustion Residual (CCR) rule introduces new challenges for companies developing new landfills or expanding existing sites. Join us to learn how Alliant Energy overcame these challenges and expanded the Ottumwa Midland Landfill (OML) to accommodate increased byproduct disposal rates from new emission control projects.
Steve Lamb and Floyd Cotter – Selecting the Right Closure Cap Option for Your Surface Impoundment or CCR Landfill – Alternative capping options have recently emerged in the industry, such as exposed geomembrane liners or synthetic turf/geomembrane liner systems. Some of these alternative capping options have many advantages over their traditional counterparts. These experts describe the advantages and disadvantages of alternative capping options.
