The National Environmental Monitoring Conference is the most extensive conference in North America focused on the field of environmental measurements. The conference brings together scientists and managers from federal and state agencies, the regulated community, academia, and laboratory and engineering support communities. Due to concerns over the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 NEMC conference was held as a virtual conference featuring 138 live oral presentations, 39 poster presentations, and a virtual exhibit program.
NEMC provides the principal forum for addressing policy and technical issues affecting monitoring in all environmental media (i.e., water, air, soil, and waste) and across all environmental programs. The conference was initiated in 1985 as part of EPA’s efforts to foster a partnership among the Agency, the regulated community, the public, state regulatory agencies, and the other members of the monitoring community. Since 2006 NEMC has been co-sponsored by The NELAC Institute under a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA). The technical program is organized by a committee of environmental experts from government, academia, and private industry – it brings together a balance of technical and policy topics for each year’s symposium that are of interest to all.
MANTECH was proud to participate in this virtual conference with an oral presentation showcasing the MT-Series Automated Titration and Multi-Parameter Analyzers, the Automated BOD Analyzers, and the PeCOD COD Analyzer. You can view a recording of MANTECH’s session at the conference below:
