Washington, D.C. – Against the backdrop of a national election that will no doubt shape the future of the construction industry and its products, the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) and the World Plumbing Council (WPC) will convene May 1-2, 2012, in Washington, D.C., the third International Emerging Technology Symposium.
A gathering of experts who will discuss policy initiatives that will drive the introduction of new technologies to market and advance the cause of water efficiency, the event is designed to provide a portal for the host organizations’ partners in the manufacturing, engineering and trade industries to display and demonstrate their innovative solutions to regulatory developments that often alter industry landscapes.
IAPMO and the WPC previously hosted two highly regarded and insightful Emerging Technology Symposiums in Chicago (2008) and Ontario, Calif., (2010), keynoted by then US EPA Administrator Stephen L. Johnson and renowned “green cowboy” S. David Freeman, respectively.
IAPMO and the WPC are seeking sponsors, presenters and panelists to participate in the 2012 symposium; especially experts in the following fields:
• Water, Sanitation and Health
• Water and Energy Efficiency
• Water Reuse
• Solar and Other Renewable Energies
• Water Quality
• Fat, Oil and Grease Discharges
• Advancements in Mechanical Systems
• Plumbing Research Initiatives
• Laws, Regulations and Policy Development
A series of videos from the previous two symposiums are available for viewing online.
In addition to the symposiums, IAPMO and the WPC have previously worked together to bring industry wide attention to the SARS epidemic and the measures necessary to mitigate its threat around the world.
