Ryan McDonald, Application Specialist focusing on the Incineration market, presented last week at the IT3 conference in Charlotte, NC. Ryan also acted as the chair of the Advancements in Refractory Design Session. Throughout the week, there were great presentations on Thermal Treatment Technologies and Hazardous Waste Combustors, and we can see great work being done to control PFAS and other hazardous emissions in the industry.

Ryan’s presentation was centered around HWI’s new middleweight refractory technology, and the exciting advancements in refractory recycling at HarbisonWalker International. For more information, please feel free to reach out to Ryan.
