The event has been scheduled for October 2-4 at the Toronto Airport Marriot Hotel in Canada’s Ontario province and will kick off with a pre-conference field trip to the University of Toronto Engine Test Facility.
Designed for mine managers, health, safety and environmental professionals, regulators and researchers alike, the conference also welcomes diesel equipment manufacturers as well as producers of engine and aftertreatment technologies focused on controlling diesel emissions.
The technical sessions of the gathering will include the umbrella topics of diesel engine and alternate technologies; emissions control technologies’ fuel, lubricant and alternative fuels; green mining vehicles; lab and field studies, instrumentation and monitoring; regulatory and health issues; and maintenance and ventilation.
The papers associated with the presentations, according to the organizers, were selected from abstracts and those invited to speak were notified late last month. Complete papers are now being submitted for inclusion in the conference’s proceedings.
Adjournment has been set for 4.30pm on October 4 following a final roundtable forum. Exhibits will be available all three days of the conference.
