2021 IEACA Environmental Training Virtual Symposium and Conference

October 5, 2021

The 2021 IEACA Environmental Conference will take place virtually October 5-6. This year’s theme is Working Together for Environmental Justice and Economic Prosperity.

The 2021 Annual Environmental Conference is presented by the Industrial Environmental Association (IEA) and the California Manufacturers and Technology Association (CMTA).

While originally scheduled to be an in-person conference, the 37th Annual Environmental Training Symposium & Conference will now be virtual, and will feature 12 sessions on two tracks running simultaneously over two days. It will also include virtual networking opportunities on the conference app and several dedicated in-person events such as the San Diego Bayside Water Projects Yacht Cruise, allowing attendees to sign up for networking events that make the most sense for them. Panels will cover topics including air, hazardous materials, health & safety, sustainability, and water quality, with expert speakers from Southern California.

Past annual IEA conferences have hosted about 500 attendees from various professions such as environmental, health, and safety experts, NGO representatives, environmental engineers from public and private sectors, environmental consultants and attorneys, government affairs representatives, DoD, and many more.

Improving Global Air Quality – Perspective in the A&WMA Publication for Young Professionals

April 5, 2018

This article discusses global air quality and how the collaboration between policy-makers and the scientific community can have a continued positive impact on air quality in the U.S. This collaboration has been the primary cause for the improvements observed in air quality over the past few decades.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) programs, such as the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), New Source Review, and Maximum Achievable Control Technology standards, have all had a significant impact on improving air quality by lowering the ambient concentrations of NOX, VOC, CO, SOX, and PM.

Some areas, such as southern California, have committed to working toward electrifying the transportation network, implementing more stringent standards on diesel fuel sulfur content, and encouraging heavier utilization of public transportation.
