Environmental Research & Educational Foundation presents ‘Coal ash management and regulations’

A 90-minute webinar focusing on coal combustion residuals (CCR) is set for Tuesday, Feb. 19, 1—2:30 p.m. EST. The webinar is part of the continuing education program offered by the Raleigh, N.C.-based Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF).

In a press release describing the webinar, EREF says, “Coal accounts for more than a third of electricity generation in the U.S., resulting in [more than] 130 million short tons of coal combustion residuals (CCR) annually.” That makes coal ash one of the largest waste streams in the U.S., according to the release.

The role of the geosynthetics industry comes into play with recent proposals from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding containment issues as detailed in the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act—RCRA Subtitle C vs. Subtitle D. This webinar provides a primer on CCRs as well as recommendations for their management and characterization in light of these proposed regulations, according to the release.

Webinar presenters include:

A certificate of attendance will be provided to each paid participant. Those seeking to use the certificate to claim professional development hours/continuing education credit are responsible for ensuring this form of verification is accepted by respective licensing or certification entities.

The cost for the webinar is $130 per person, with volume and student discounts available. To register or for more information, send an email to: events@erefdn.org.
