Curtis Laush to Present on Air Quality Monitoring in Air & Waste Management Association Webinar

Curtis Laush, Ph.D. (Tennessee) will present "FTIR-CEM Applications, O&M Concerns, Data Management and Process Control" in the Air & Waste Management Association Webinar from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. EDT on August 20, 2020.

The moderator for the presentation will be Peter Zemek, SVP, Montrose Environmental Group.

Curtis Laush is a Senior Physical Chemist based in Tennessee with more than 20 years of professional experience focused on the detailed analysis, monitoring, tracking, and management of air emissions produced by electric utilities, solid waste storage facilities, manufacturing plants, and similar industrial operations.

If you have heard about an air quality monitoring system based upon FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) and wonder - "What good is this thing, anyway?" - this webinar will provide the answers and solutions you need on this rapidly evolving technology.

Founded in 1907, the Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan professional organization enhancing knowledge and expertise by providing a neutral forum for information exchange, professional development, networking opportunities, public education, and outreach to more than 5,000 environmental professionals in 65 countries. A&WMA promotes global environmental responsibility and increases the effectiveness of organizations to make critical decisions that benefit society.

Presentation Description

The advent of lower cost and industrial grade original equipment manufacturer (OEM) FTIR interferometers allow for optically compact, small footprint CEM/CPM designs that are more robust and easier to install, automate and maintain. This webinar outlines the latest in FTIR-CEM/CPM components and how they are best implemented depending on industry specific applications, process emission chemistries and data streaming/control requirements. Proper EPA and ASTM certified field installation, calibration and auditing procedures will be discussed, and existing real-world applications (as currently operated and maintained by the course instructor) will be presented.
