A professional organization’s Washington, D.C.-area conference will examine clean air approaches as complements to climate change strategies, and vice versa.
Impacts, related policies, and the outlook for federal regulation take center stage at an upcoming specialty conference to be held September 10 and 11 at the Herndon, Va., Hyatt Dulles Hotel, outside of Washington, D.C.
Among issues to be examined at the meeting being held by the Pittsburgh-based Air & Waste Management Association (AWMA, earlier known as the Air Pollution Control Association) are potential advantages of integrated approaches to air quality and climate change issues.
