IECT/BOMP Joint Conference Agenda

July 27-29, 2020
July 30 Emissions Testing, Sampling, Analysis & Reporting Workshop

Holiday Inn By The Bay, Portland, Maine

As COVID-19 forced the cancellation of the Boiler Operations, Maintenance and Performance Conference this year, we are incorporating those aspects where energy operations, maintenance and performance come together with environmental issues and operating permit compliance requirements for energy efficiency, sustainability, environmental compliance to keep operation running, companies competitive and our institutions leading the way as examples of energy use and environmental performance.

This joint conference is not about just talking about the end results, it is about how you get there – Doing it. Doing it better, quicker and cheaper.  It is picking up best practices and new methodologies form the experts across the industrial and institutional energy generation and utilization sector.  Check out the following agenda to date.

Conference Chairs, Kristine Davies Trinity Consultants Inc and Gary Merritt, NSG/IPAC
