IETS to host wastewater discussion

Share With:

The International Emerging Technology Symposium (IETS) is the place to be to hear how issues in our nation’s building drains and sewers are affecting you and your customers.

ETS-08_7It should be no surprise to plumbing contractors that there are drain problems here in the USA. As the amount of water we flush into our building drains and sewers decreases, we are seeing a simultaneous increase in the amount of fats, oils and greases – known as “FOG” in the waste water community – along with food waste from kitchen grinder disposers and “flushable” consumer products entering our sewers.  Worldwide, these problems persist as well.  The best illustration was last summer’s “Fat-berg”, a grease bound stoppage, an estimated 15 tons, found in the London Sewers.

Moderated by Mechanical Hub’s John Mesenbrink, this impressive panel of experts will discuss wastewater issues in detail at the IETS. Corporate Partner InSinkErator, other water industry experts, and a representative of the flushables industry, will be participating on this panel:

• Silvano Ferrazzo, the Director of Business Development for Green Turtle America, Ltd. – an innovative manufacturer of sustainable grease interceptors.

• Casey Furlong, an Environmental Specialist with InSinkErator, the world’s leading manufacturer of food waste disposers.

• Hiram Tanner, Manager for the District of Columbia’s Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water)

• Adam Krantz, Managing Director, Government & Public Affairs, The National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA)

• David Powling, Family Care R&E Technical Leader at Kimberly Clark Corporation
