A free workshop will be offered to International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) attendees on the Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) program. The U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) is sponsoring this free session to provide a basic overview of TRI reporting as well as offer greater details on intricate aspects of the reporting requirements that are routinely confusing and ambiguous due to the lack of endorsed guidance.

During the program to be held on Feb 2., Dave Turk, acting branch chief of TRI Programs at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will provide a TRI program update as well as discuss other facets of reporting specific to the poultry and egg industry. Sam Hardin, P.E., Clearwater Consultants, will discuss reporting issues for nitrate compounds in wastewater, and Steven Woodruff, P.E., president of Woodruff & Howe Environmental Engineering, will address reporting issues for hydrogen sulfide.

IPPE, the world's largest annual poultry, feed and meat industry trade show, will be held Jan. 31–Feb. 2. IPPE is a collaboration of three trade shows—International Feed Expo, International Poultry Expo and International Meat Expo—representing the entire chain of protein production and processing. The event is sponsored by USPOULTRY, the American Feed Industry Association and the North American Meat Institute.
