Please be advised: If you are approached by a third party offering to get you a hotel room for the ILMA Annual Meeting at a  better rate, this is a scam! They may offer a better rate for the room than the ILMA block rate at the Hyatt Regency, but you will not actually get the room! Once you register for the meeting, you will get an email from ILMA with instructions on how to book your room at the Hyatt. The ILMA block has enough rooms for all attendees.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or Agency) has approved 12 pre-manufacture notifications (PMNs) for medium-chain chlorinated paraffins (MCCPs), long-chain chlorinated paraffins (LCCPs), and very long-chain chlorinated paraffins (vLCCPs). EPA’s action forecloses and debunks the industry rumor that these substances were going to be banned by “mid-2017,” and it ensures their prospective availability for use in a variety of applications, including in lubricants and metalworking fluid (MWF) formulations, for the foreseeable future. The PMN approvals are a significant “win” for the chlorinated paraffins (CPs) manufacturers and their customers, including ILMA members. 


Emerging Contaminants and What We Know About Them

July 26, 2017; 2:00 PM - 2:45 PM - Register Now

Emerging contaminants (ECs) have become an increasing area of interest in the environmental industry for at least the past 10 years due to rising concern about their potential impacts on human health and the environment, and they are being identified in soil, groundwater, drinking water, and other media throughout the United States and other countries. Yet, the risks they pose are not fully understood. This webinar will define an emerging contaminant as there are several understandings. A summary of three leading ECs will be discussed, what they are and where they came from. In addition, this webinar will summarize EPA and State regulatory thresholds, their variance and comparison to other well-studied chemicals.
