Conference season has kicked back into high gear and the BAL road warriors are dusting off their suitcases! As you can see by the list of conferences, BAL is much more than an environmental laboratory – from power plants to Department of Energy (DOE) to pharmaceuticals to food, our lab provides customized analytical services to a wide array of industries, while staying hyper-focused on what we know best…Meaningful Metals Data and Advanced Speciation Solutions!

 

Kicking off the travel this month, Russ Gerads has been invited to travel to Chattanooga on September 12 to share his knowledge and expertise on power plant chemistry, particularly as it relates to the hot-button topic of selenium treatment in wastewater. This meeting is hosted and sponsored by ADA-ES.

 

DOE-CAP LogoFor the third year in a row, Jamie Fox, will be attending the DOE’s Analytical Services Program Workshop on September 13 – 14 in Las Vegas. The workshop provides opportunities to share best management practices and lessons learned from across the DOE complex.

 

Jamie then hops off one plane on to another to head to New Jersey and attend Pharma ChemOutsourcing in Long Branch from September 18 – 20. This meeting provides the opportunity to network, learn, and discuss issues affecting the industry, including elemental testing in drug products and materials that are part of the manufacturing process. Learn more on our Pharmaceuticals webpage.

 

Next up, Ben Wozniak will be headed to Atlanta to present at the AOAC’s Annual Meeting from September 24 – 27. The conference brings together the top food chemistry expert in the world! The title of Ben’s presentation will be “Intercomparison of extraction and analytical techniques for inorganic arsenic in seaweed.”

 

Lastly, Michelle Briscoe and Annie Carter will attend the American Council of Independent Laboratories (ACIL) Annual Meeting in Portland October 2-5. This year’s conference promises to present an inspiring program where our company’s leaders will have opportunities to experience topnotch educational and leadership seminars to enhance our business practices and laboratory operations.
