AQE SHOW 2018 - REA Conference Programme

REAWith the recent release of the Best Available Techniques for the waste sector now live in the hands of the regulator, there has never been a better time to be informed on issues relating to emissions from biowaste! Whether it is finding out about odour thresholds and perception from the EA or understanding the science behind composting and process optimisation from a renowned development scientist. This year's AQE emissions event titled 'Understanding emission risks from organics recycling activities' is the place to be. As before, this half day seminar which is free to attend for REA members will provide an excellent insight into issues that impact operators and provide cause for concern.
