Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel, Poughkeepsie, NY. Details. This yearly event engages stakeholders from across the state in discussion aimed at developing creative solutions to barriers that restrict the sustainable management of organics materials (i.e. food scraps, yard waste, manure, etc.). The end goal is to significantly increase diversion of organics from landfills and recycling through composting, anaerobic digestion, and other processes. An opportunity to connect with NYS materials management professionals and develop innovative organics management strategies for your community.
MDC Training Facility, Hartford, CT. This annual training helps Sewage Sludge Incinerator (SSI) operators meet the operator qualification requirements of EPA’s Federal Plan Requirements for Sewage Sludge Incineration Units (the SSI MACT rule for air emissions). Operators already qualified can take just the morning class to meet the annual refresher requirements. The full, day-long course includes the required exam for first-time qualification.

Franklin Training Center, Franklin, NH. 5 training credit hours (TCHs). This class will provide key concepts and details for application of Class A and Class B biosolids in a variety of uses, including agriculture, horticulture, and land reclamation. Larger applications of biosolids must follow agronomic rates; we’ll review the calculations, run through examples, and emphasize the challenge of excess phosphorus in biosolids created by removing phosphorus from effluent and options for solving it. We’ll also cover required field practices, such as setbacks & site evaluation, and best management practices to avoid potential environmental and social (neighbor) impacts. Instructors: Ned Beecher (NEBRA), Andrew Carpenter (Northern Tilth). Produced by NHWPCA, NEBRA, with assistance of NH DES.

How do we develop a balanced system for use of organic residuals, with all their benefits, without adding to negative environmental impacts caused by phosphorus (P) leaching and runoff? This symposium will provide technical, research-based information and dialogue on the presence, forms, dynamics, transport, and fates of P applied to soils in organic residuals such as composts, biosolids, manures, and digestates from anaerobic digestion. This symposium is intended to help in developing guidelines for the use of P-containing organic residuals in accordance with nutrient management regulations. Details & Registration...
