ANNOUNCEMENT: AIChE 2nd Pollution Prevention Topical Workshop (Houston Texas, March 18-19, 1999)

P2TECH'ers --

If you are planning on attending the AIChE's Second Topical Workshop on
Pollution Prevention, you need to register for the workshop ASAP.  You can
register by calling AIChE at 1-800-AIChEME (1-800-242-4363) or by viewing
the workshop website (URL provided below).

This is a particularly good workshop for those interested in the nuts and
bolts of how to apply pollution prevention to the chemical process
industries.  And remember that if you register for the workshop, you'll get
$100 off the cost of registering for the AIChE Spring National Meeting and
PetroExpo, which occurs earlier in the week.  

Please forward to those who might be interested.

> Process Safety Center at Texas A & M, are proud to host the Second AIChE
> Topical Pollution Prevention Workshop.  This year's workshop is being held
> in the Houston Southwest Hilton, immediately following the 1999 AIChE
> Spring National Meeting and Petrochem Expo.   This year's Spring National
> meeting includes topical sessions on Distillation: Horizons for the New
> Millennium; Heat Transfer Equipment in the Process Industries; the 33rd
> Loss Prevention Topical Conference; Topical Conference on Managing
> Environmental Risks; and Chemical Engineering in Environmental Management
> Systems.  So come to Houston for the National Meeting, stay for the
> Pollution Prevention Workshop!
> The 2-day workshop is intended for plant personnel, product and process
> design engineers, compliance and environmental managers, and technical
> assistance providers working with the process industries.  It's objectives
> are:
> *	Provide tools for improving process efficiency
> *	Identify hidden opportunities for reducing wastes
> *	Learn what's happening on the compliance horizon
> *	Make better use of on-line information resources
> *	Learn how to integrate pollution prevention into plant and product
> design
> The workshop program features a number of speakers from the process
> industries, presenting both state of the art tutorials and hands-on
> sessions to permit you to put the new concepts into practice.  Break-out
> session topics include process analysis methods in use at DuPont and other
> leading chemical manufacturers,  applying pollution prevention during
> process and product design, utilizing the internet as a P2 research tool,
> applying lifecycle analysis and total cost accounting, and overcoming
> obstacles to pollution prevention implementation.
> There will also be a break-out track featuring "Texas Style" P2 success
> stories, including presentations from Texas industries, TNRCC staff and
> officials, and a plant tour of a Houston area chemical facility that has
> successfully implemented a variety of pollution prevention improvements.  
> Complete conference information, including a full program agenda,
> logistics information, registration forms, etc is available at:
