EPRI-DOE-EPA Combined Utility Air Pollutant Control Symposium
August 25-29, 1997
Washington Hilton & Towers, Washington, DC.

This first-ever "Mega" Symposium will combine the SO 2 Control Symposium, the Joint Symposium on Stationary Combustion NO x Control, and the Particulate/Air Toxins Control Symposium into a single, week-long event. Cosponsored by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), with assistance from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), this multi-pollutant conference will continue the tradition of its predecessor meetings of showcasing the latest developments and operational experience with state-of-the-art methods for reducing NO x , SO 2 , and particulate/air toxics emissions from fossil-fueled boilers. Sessions will also be devoted to Continuous Emissions Monitors.

Registration fee for the full symposium is $600 ($650 after 8/3).
For a single topic is $350 ($400 after 8/3).
