Join us in Astoria, OR October 25th & 26th!


  • Steve Ostanek, President Neundorfer
  • Justin Isaacs, Environmental Consultant

The depth in which each topic is covered will depend upon the needs of the group in attendance. However, the general outcomes of the workshops are:

  • Identify the process variables impacting your equipment performance and what you can do to maintain consistent performance across varying conditions.
  • How to use your data to make cost-effective use of unplanned and planned outages
  • Identify your highest risk to non-compliance and how to best mitigate it
  • Learn how additives or sorbent systems can be optimized to support continuous compliance without the unintended consequences on other pollution control schemes
  • Create operational and maintenance strategies that lead to sustained compliance, reliable performance, and flexibility across different operating conditions
  • Learn best practices around equipment efficiency, troubleshooting, and maintenance planning
  • Consistent compliance during all operating scenarios, including start-up, shut downs and equipment malfunctions


Why are the dates the same as the equipment training workshop?

The problem-solving workshops and equipment training workshops are held in the same locations on the same dates. There is some overlap between the two sessions and also some dedicated time apart.    Prior to registering, or even while you are there, participants select which track they want to attend.  The equipment-training portion spends a heavier amount of time on the fundamental operations, maintenance, and troubleshooting of the equipment.  This is the ideal track for beginners or those that need to understand the equipment functionality in-depth.  The problem-solving workshops spend time investigating specific issues at the plant, discussing planned changes and their impact on emissions, reliability, and operations, or other challenges that you are facing.  This is a higher-level course that spends more time focused on the impacts of process variables on performance, how different additives and injection systems interact and influence performance, or other similar focuses that are relevant to the group.  This is the ideal track for those with experience or who are in a role that involves planning and evaluations more-so than hands-on interaction with the equipment.

I don’t know which I should attend!

Not sure which one is best for you, feel free to sign up for either and during the pre-workshop call we can discuss what to bring, how to prepare, and which session is best for you!

Reliable, More Effective Granular Sulfur Feeder

Duke Energy

When Duke Energy's Allen Steam Station started upgrades to the granular sulfur feed system for three of its units, the utility partnered with Neundorfer to reduce emissions and improve reliability. ...
