Listed below are several organizations that the 2022 Global EnviroSummit is partning with because they are leaders for their respected segment of the market in the environmental industry. Each group will host a breakout session at the 2022 EnviroSummit so that we can train you better on the unique initiatives and technologies for treating contaminated soil, groundwater, wastewater, and air.
IHMM is non-profit credentialing body for individuals that work in the hazardous materials management, dangerous goods transportation, environmental, and health and safety communities. Founded in 1984 , the Institute of Hazardous Materials Management (IHMM), a not-for-profit organization, has been protecting the environment and the public’s health, safety and security through the creation of credentials recognizing professionals who have demonstrated a high level of knowledge, expertise, and excellence in the management of hazardous materials, transportation of dangerous goods, environmental protection, health and safety.

The Coal Ash and Liquid Management (CALM) Initiative was launched in September 2015 at UNC Charlotte by Chris Hardin, P.E., Managing Director and several faculty researchers from the Energy Production and Infrastructure Center, (EPIC) in September 2015 to develop practical, technology-based solutions for the energy production industry to address problems and challenges with coal ash and liquids management. Effective January 2018, the CALM Initiative has evolved into a private, industry funded consortium, that is based at the UNC Charlotte PORTAL Building. CALM will continue to utilize the expertise at UNC Charlotte EPIC, but also work with a wide variety of industry experts to address the unique challenges presented by coal ash remediation, coal combustion energy production and energy wastewater treatment.
The objective of CALM is to work with a wide variety of industry partners, and the electric power utilities to provide the most recent technology for evaluating groundwater impacts and coal ash impoundment stability. This will be accomplished by initiating a combination of applied research projects, and large demonstration projects that increase safety, improve long term performance and reduce cost. https://calminitiative.com/
AVIP is a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization. The purpose of AVIP is to build a community of professionals dedicated to advancing the industry and providing a forum for informational exchange of knowledge and science related to Vapor Intrusion (VI); as well as establishing a central resource for technology, guidance, standards, credentialing and best practices for both those in the industry and those seeking VI related services.
The executive board is comprised of the leaders in the VI industry and they have worked on projects all over the world. One of the board members worked on the very first VI project over 30 years ago. For more details go to: https://www.vi-pro.org/
The Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC) is a state-led coalition working to reduce barriers to the use of innovative air, water, waste, and remediation environmental technologies and processes. ITRC produces documents and training that broaden and deepen technical knowledge and expedite quality regulatory decision making while protecting human health and the environment.With public and private sector members from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, ITRC truly provides a national perspective.
ITRC will be hosting a breakout session focused on PFAS training and the team Leaders are Sandra Goodrow (NJDEP) & Kate Emma Schlosser (NHDES). The state of the science and understanding of PFAS is constantly evolving. The goal of the PFAS continuation team is to update existing ITRC technical resources to reflect the latest in the science of PFAS; develop video training resources; establish a new subgroup dedicated to collecting data, information, and scientific knowledge to support states in their work to surface water; and perform classroom trainings based on ITRC’s published technical resources. https://itrcweb.org/
Dry Scrubber Users Association (DSUA) is a non-profit, non-stock organization formed in 2008. Our mission is to facilitate the exchange of valuable knowledge amongst owners, operators and suppliers of dry scrubber technology used for air pollution control. We support and promote innovation and collaboration for Spray Dryer Absorber, Circulating Dry Scrubber and Dry Sorbent Injection solutions (as well as the associated particulate control device) for cost-effective and reliable acid gas emission control.
