The 2022 Fugitive Emissions Summit Americas Steering Committee held a meeting last month to discuss a variety of topics related to fugitive emissions regulation and control. The high-quality conference has an emphasis on practical, applicable knowledge sharing with the subject matter experts and key opinion leaders from the emissions community. The conference will be divided between two tracks: ESG (Environment, Social & Governance) and practical Fugitive Emissions. The ESG track will include topics on standardization, regulations and reporting, reliability, and sustainability, while the practical Fugitive Emissions will focus on monitoring, testing, maintenance, operations and installation, new technologies, and more.
