John Ward – Citizens for Recycling First confirmed to speak at ACC Spring Coal Forum

In a Coalblog post yesterday, we discussed the creation of a new citizen’s advocacy group — Citizens for Recycling First.

As part of the ACCs continuing efforts to bring you the most up to date market information and business intelligence, we have confirmed John Ward, Chairman of Citizens for Recycling First to speak at the upcoming Spring Coal Forum in Tampa (Clearwater), March 2-4 at the Sandpearl Resort and Spa. He will be discussing how coal ash regulation impacts our economy and energy production.

John also recently prepared the ACCs 2010 Coal Ash Economic Assessment Study, which details the value of coal combustion products (CCP) to the economy. In this just released study, Ward determined that CCP recycling represents an annual economic benefit of over $6.4 billion to the U.S. economy. Additionally, he noted that CCP recycling has substantial environmental benefits including, reduced GHG emissions (comparable to removing 2 million cars from our roads), reduced water use, and reduced energy consumption.

For those involved in the coal and energy industry, up to date knowledge on coal ash regulation and other game changing technologies and policies is essential. Be sure to reserve your place at the 2010 Spring Coal Forum.

Then be sure to pick up your copy of the 2010 Coal Ash Economic Assessment for the most up to date information on CCP use.

Then, check out the Citizens for Recycling First website – and head to their Contest of the Week page to test your coal ash knowledge and maybe win a prize.
