About your Speaker:
Bart Leininger has over 20 years of professional experience in air quality and related environmental disciplines. Before starting his consulting firm, Leininger was responsible for environmental compliance at a major manufacturing facility in California, and developed detailed permitting and expansion plans to assist in the siting of a major manufacturing area on California's Central Coast.
As a principal with ALG, Leininger routinely consults with broad spectrum of industrial, commercial, and research operations throughout the United States. He therefore has a solid understanding of what is required to manage plant expansions within the complex web of environmental requirements, and the practical expertise that comes from crafting successful plant modernization and expansion plans. Combined with his solid background as an expert technical witness on environmental enforce matters, Leininger offers a unique perspective on the challenges of developing cost-effective, responsive, and effective environmental compliance plans and strategies.
Ev Ashworth has over 25 years of professional experience in air quality, greenhouse gas and related environmental disciplines. This experience includes directing plant modernization and Greenfield permitting programs for refineries, glass plants, medical and biotech manufacturing facilities, computer/semiconductor operations, mining, manufacturing, health care, and food industries.
Ashworth routinely works with large, integrated manufacturing facilities, senior management, and legal counsel to develop complex permitting programs within compressed schedules and facing potentially significant opposition. He also provides expert testimony in connection with variances and orders of abatement before local air pollution control hearing boards, on state implementation plan, emission reduction credit, and feasibility of control programs in state court.

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
