With record attendance, and surpassed expectations of exhibitors and guests alike, 2022’s Fugitive Emissions Summit successfully brought together a community of end users, EPCs, distributors, manufacturers, and suppliers dedicated to improving workplace practices, in efforts to reduce environmental damage caused by industrial emissions.
The two day (Sept. 28-29th) event at San Jacinto College LyondellBasell Center for Petrochemical, Energy, and Technology in Pasadena TX., provided a dynamic meeting point for a diverse range of professionals, who capitalized on the opportunity to speak with one another. Over the past two days, we received hundreds of participants from several industrial disciplines, HSE professionals, LDAR Auditors, design engineers, carbon engineers, and many more.
This was the first time the facility’s dynamic labs were used, which allowed for hands-on learning and interaction. The event consisted of several high-quality keynotes, panel discussions, informative workshops the utilization of dynamic labs, and an expo hall where visitors and vendors were able to network and talk-shop. All of which provided ample time for learning, reconnecting, and forming new business connections.
Offering the day one, full-house a warm welcome, Fugitive Emissions Summit Americas Chairman Tim Goedeker, of Phillips 66, kicked the expo off. The 38-year-industry veteran has long been a proponent of the exploration of new technologies and pathways for future improvements to our environment. A special congratulations to Tim Goedeker, who recently announced his retirement from the industry.
After a full day of keynotes and workshops attendees enjoyed the open bar, and were invited to the Networking Reception hosted by Bonney Forge and MRC Global. The night continued thanks to Teadit, TRICORD Consulting, and Neway, who hosted another social event at a local restaurant.
Day two opened with three well attended keynotes; Vice-chairman Bronson Pate’s LDAR & ELP, and for the first time, we invited Kosta Loukeris, from the U.S. EPA, to provide an update, as well as a Houston Economic Alliance Port Region update. The afternoon featured a bevy of workshops ranging from drill and tap demonstrations, the future of ESG, to monitoring and testing.
After two remarkable events, Fugitive Emissions Summit Americas has cemented itself as one of the most important emission control conferences in the industry. Drawing a crowd of emission prevention and monitoring professionals and decision makers from all corners of the industry.`
The high-level event provided all who came a great chance to show off/ learn about new technology, network and educate a diverse community of emission professionals. We look forward to Fugitive Emissions Americas 2023.
