The Environics, Inc. Post
Our next conference is Aerospace Medical Assoc. Annual Scientific Meeting, May 13-17 in Atlanta.
One of our favorite times of year is fast approaching, the annual Air & Waste Management Association's Conference & Exposition (ACE). The conference takes place in Orlando, FL from June 21-24. This is the 104th annual conference for AWMA and it is the 25th year that Environics has participated in the meeting.
This year, the focus in "Beyond All Borders" and "will focus on how environmental challenges often stretch beyond political, regional, and cultural lines, and involve diverse communities in working out solutions. Regional topics will include the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill; air quality modeling; carbon dioxide; environmental management of ports, marinas, and shipyards; waste disposal on the Gulf Coast; and environmental issues related to transportation." (from the ACE website).
The keynote speakers, Admiral Thad Allen and Gwendolyn Keyes Fleming will be discussing the Gulf Oil Spill as well as the EPA's role response to the spill. Both should be very interesting. We are also eager to see the projects of The Environmental Challenge International. In this program, students participate in teams from all over the country to prepare an optimal solution to a complex “true-to-life” environmental problem.
It looks like it will be a terrific meeting, as always!
We look forward each year to seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Our team is looking forward to discussing our gas flow instruments with you at our Booth, #417.

Our team has been having a terrific time at the Aerospace Medical Assoc. Annual Meeting in Anchorage, Alaska this week. We've had the chance to speak with participants from the US and overseas, and we have learned a great deal. Yesterday, there was a talk about the effects of hypoxia on pilots and the use of the Environics ROBD2 in hypoxia training. We are thrilled to play a small role in making training equipment that truly can help save lives.
Thanks to all of you who stopped by!!
