ASTM International Subcommittee D18.26 previously organized several workshops on various issues related to hydraulic fracturing activities, some of which were co-sponsored by related ASTM committees. To further the discussion on this important topic, D18.26 and Committee D22 on Air Quality
are jointly sponsoring a half-day workshop on air quality issues related to hydraulic fracturing activities. The workshop seeks to focus on air quality issues potentially affecting the general public, and potential impacts to workers at those sites. These impacts include respirable silica, benzene and other organics, and nitrogen oxides.
The workshop will focus on identification of air quality issues related to hydraulic fracturing activities. This Call for Presentations solicits speakers that will contribute to:
Awareness of the potential air quality issues at hydraulic fracturing sites;
Describe technologies and best practices for monitoring, assessing, and controlling agents of concern; and
Identify opportunities for development of consensus standards that would address these issues.
Registration fees and hotel information are posted on the workshop webpage, for more information, please visit: http://www.astm.org/D18-D22Jan2016
