Calendar of Upcoming Events

EPA sponsors and participates in various events to help stakeholders understand and use the best management practices of green remediation. Upcoming events include:


March 7-10, 2021. Sustainable Water Management. Charlotte, North Carolina. This four-day event hosted by the American Water Works Association will bring together water sector organizations and professionals to discuss all aspects of resilient and efficient water management. Anticipated topics include water and energy efficiency; sustainable utilities and infrastructure resilience; water conservation programs; climate change mitigation and adaption; and alternative water sources.

March 29-31, 2021. 13th Symposium on Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites. Virtual symposium. This annual symposium hosted by the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Philadelphia Post and the U.S. EPA facilitates interactive engagement among government and private sector professionals who apply the engineering and science associated with cleaning up hazardous waste sites. Anticipated topics include case studies that demonstrate successful inclusion of sustainability considerations, approaches and results in remedial design (RD) and remedial action (RA) projects or highlight application and impact of redevelopment considerations during RD/RA.

June 27-July 1, 2021. 2021 Combined Chlorinated and Bioremediation Conference. Portland, Oregon. Platform sessions topics are anticipated to include green and sustainable remediation best practices and case studies; advanced investigation tools and techniques such as drone use and high-resolution passive sampling; the impact of climate change and sea level rise on remediation sites; and advanced tools for assessment and monitoring.

September 21-23, 2021. 27th National Tanks Conference & Exposition. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Anticipated topics of the plenary sessions and posters include innovative cleanup technologies and approaches to address leaking underground storage tanks (LUSTs), such as green remediation and high resolution site characterization tools; development of LUST conceptual site models addressing emerging contaminants; and alternative fuels stored in underground storage tanks.

September 27-30, 2021. 2021 National Brownfields Training Conference. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. This biennial event hosted by the U.S. EPA and the International City/County Management Association gathers together stakeholders focused on cleaning up and reusing formerly utilized commercial and industrial properties. It will offer more than 100 panels, roundtables, presentations and mobile workshops.

December 13-16, 2021. ACES Conference. Bonita Springs, Florida. The four-day ACES (A Community on Ecosystem Services) conference will bring together the growing international network of researchers, practitioners and policy-makers who are interested in natural systems and their relationships with human well-being. Anticipated topics include land and resource management using ecosystem services; translation of ecosystem function to human health outcomes and valuation; and non-use ecosystem services methods and valuation. The event is organized by the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.


March 3, 2021. Designing Hybrid Combined Heat and Power Systems: An Introduction to New Features in NREL's REopt Lite Tool. This 1-hour webinar sponsored by the Clean Energy Alliance will focus on a new REopt™ Lite module addressing combined heat and power (CHP) systems. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) developed the REopt Lite web tool to help building managers evaluate economic viability of grid-connected photovoltaic (PV), wind, and battery storage at a site; identify system sizes and battery dispatch strategies to minimize energy costs; and estimate how long a system can sustain critical load during a grid outage. The new CHP module allows users to evaluate the economic and resilience benefits of four types of CHP prime movers (reciprocating engines, microturbines, combustion turbines and fuel cells) as well as chilled water storage, hot water storage and absorption chillers. These technologies can be evaluated on their own or in combination with PV, wind and battery storage to assess benefits of hybrid CHP systems.

March 11, 2021. New Resource Conservation Paradigms on DoD Lands. Dr. David Lytle of Oregon State University and Dr. Brian Hudgens of the Institute for Wildlife Studies will present information on new resource conservation paradigms on DoD Lands. This webinar is one in a series offered by the U.S. DoD Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP).

April 22, 2021. Innovative Approaches to Monitor and Survey At-Risk Species on DoD Lands. Patrick Wolff of the USACE Construction Engineering Research Laboratory and Dr. Brett DeGregorio and Dr. J.D. Willson of the University of Arkansas will present information on innovative approaches to monitor and survey at-risk species on DoD lands. This webinar is one in a series offered by the U.S. DoD Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP).

October 21, 2021. Advances in Stormwater Monitoring and the Development of Best Management Practices for Treatment. Ms. Marienne Colvin of the Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific and Dr. Richard Luthy of Stanford University will present information on advances in stormwater monitoring and the development of best management practices for treating stormwater. This webinar is one in a series offered by the U.S. DoD Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP).
