Visit HarbisonWalker International at the 35th International IT3 | HWC Conference

Oct 03, 2016 / Events

Thermal technologies play a key role in energy recovery, resource conservation, and waste treatment around the world. The International Conference on Thermal Treatment Technologies & Hazardous Waste Combustors (IT3/HWC) invites thermal treatment professionals and academicians working in all aspects of the industry to join globally-recognized experts from research and development, pilot and full scale thermal technologies in operation, public policy, and regulation to solve difficult waste management, resource conservation, and energy recovery challenges.

IT3/HWC, a thermal treatment conference, provides a forum for the discussion of state-of-the-art technical information, regulations, and public policy on thermal treatment technologies and their relationship to air emissions, greenhouse gases, climate change, renewable energy or alternative energy production, and sustainability.

HWI’s own Chris Hersh, Application Specialist, will be providing a two-hour refractory talk as a segment of the Professional Development Course.

The conference runs October 4-6, at the Hilton Baton Rouge Capitol Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
