The 2017 Railroad Environmental Conference will be held 24-25 October on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. RREC-2017 will feature presentations by railroaders, consulting engineers, academics and others involved in all aspects of railroad environmental topics. Presentation topics will include: Compliance & Permitting; Ecological Conservation, Energy, Emissions & Air Quality; Environmental Analysis; Environmental Management Systems; Environmental Response; Noise & Vibration; Passenger Rail & Transit; Remediation; Risk & Liability Management; Stormwater & Wastewater; and Sustainability.
The annual railroad environmental conference enables you to meet with your peers throughout the railroad environmental community to exchange views, learn about new techniques and technologies, and generally stay in touch with the direction of the railroad industry’s environmental programs. It is also an excellent opportunity to renew old acquaintances and make new contacts in the ever-changing railroad environmental arena.
Over 500 people attended RREC last year with representation from the railroad industry, environmental consulting engineers, environmental control equipment suppliers and regulators from both the US and Canada. We expect RREC-2017 to be the largest gathering of the railroad environmental community this year.
