The Windy City is set to host an important event in two weeks as the Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF) hosts its 2023 Summit on Quantification of Landfill Emissions. Scheduled for October 24th and 25th, this summit is an opportunity for industry personnel to unite and address the escalating challenge of greenhouse gas emissions from solid waste management facilities.

The EREF Summit is about more than just presentations and discussions. It's a platform for experts to share their knowledge, insights, and innovations. EREF opened its doors for abstract submissions, inviting thought leaders to contribute to this pivotal conversation. The emphasis is on emissions measurement at solid waste management facilities, including landfills, renewable natural gas (RNG) facilities, and compost operations. The goal? To offer attendees a holistic view of the latest research, developments, and best practices in the domain.

The summit's agenda is clear: to delve deep into the science, technology, and policies surrounding landfill emissions. With a focus on direct emissions measurement technologies, the summit will explore the potential of satellites, aircraft, drones, fixed sensors, and ground-based techniques and the science behind these efforts. It will also shed light on the variables that can impact these measurements and compare emission modeling to direct measurements.

The EREF Summit will feature a stellar lineup of speakers, each bringing a wealth of expertise in various aspects of landfill emissions, including Dr. Morton Barlaz from NC State, Jean Bogner from the University of Illinois, Amy Banister and Roger Green from WM, Dave Risk from St. Francis Xavier University, Susan Thorneloe and Dr. Eben Thoma from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and many more. View the full agenda here.

Registration is still open. For those eager to learn more or participate, further details are available on the EREF website. Sponsorship opportunities remain; contact [email protected].
