On November 6th, 2013, the Southwest Ohio Chapter (SWOC) of the Air & Waste Management Association, in conjunction with the Northern Ohio Chapter (NOC) had our "All-Ohio" meeting representing all A&WMA members in the State of Ohio! This meeting was held in downtown Columbus at the fabulous Riffe Center on the 31st floor which offered a great view of the city, the river, the overall air quality, and provided an overall excellent venue to hear dynamic and technically, and regulatory savvy speakers!
This program was generously sponsored by Mr. Mike Born, of Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick (http://www.slk-law.com/About-Shumaker), a full-service business law firm with more than 220 attorneys in its five offices located in Toledo and Columbus, Ohio; Tampa. Mr. Born heads up the environmental practice for the Columbus office.
This excellent program featured presentations by several people including:
Air Quality Update - Bob Hodenbosi
September 2013 BAT Changes - Mike Hopkins
Overview of the Boiler GACT and Boiler MACT Requirements - Dave Jordan
Bioremediation & Benefical Reuse Process & Facility Presentation - Chris Elliott and Jon Ransom
The meeting was facilitated by Arnie Beringer of CEECO Equipment who started off the program. Arnie is finishing up not one, but two, terms as Chairman of the SW Ohio Chapter, A&WMA. We ALL fully appreciate the commitment that Arnie has made to bring leadership to the group, and value of membership to the local chapter. See this attached picture of Arnie being presented a well-deserved plaque recognizing his efforts to make a very positive impact on the chapter. Arnie's plaque is being presented by Jason Simon, Chapter Treasurer. Great job Arnie!
We urge you all to share the value of being a member of A&WMA and the excellent technical, regulatory and networking opportunities that come from membership in A&WMA!
Soon, we will have our newest chair in place, Terri Sexton of Navistar, and elections for other key office positions (Vice-Chair and Second Vice-Chair). Look for ballots to be sent out soon.
Thanks to all who attended. We know from the comments, everyone who did really enjoyed the presentations and networking. If you were not able to make this meeting, we look forward to connecting with you at Chapter meetings during 2014!
On September 12, 2013, the Southwest Ohio Chapter (SWOC) of the Air & Waste Management Association had our Fall Meeting at the fabulous GE Aircraft Engine Training Center and Aviation Engine Museum!
The program featured presentations by Debbie Walker and Joane Rheinhold of GE; Brad Miller and Anna Kelly of the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency; Terry Harris of SunCoke; and Tom Herman of Zeon Chemical representing the AWMA Scouting Council.
This meeting was sponsored by GE, which generously allowed us to use their meeting facility.
The presenters talks included:
For those who were able to attend, you had an opportunity to see the on-site, GE jet engine test cells, and get a first-hand look at how the test cell program works, how testing is conducted, and how emissions are measured, all important parts of aviation air quality.
