    Railroad Environmental Conference

    The 2016 Railroad Environmental Conference will be held 1-2 November on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. RREC 2016 will feature presentations by railroaders, consulting engineers, academics and others involved in all aspects of railroad environmental topics. Presentation topics will include: Compliance & Permitting; Ecological Conservation; Energy, Emissions & Air Quality; Environmental Analysis; Environmental Management Systems; Environmental Response; Noise & Vibration; Passenger Rail & Transit; Remediation; Risk & Liability Management; Stormwater & Wastewater; and Sustainability.


    All individuals interested in the topics to be presented are encouraged to attend. We expect representatives from all of the Class 1 railroads, as well as short line, passenger, commuter, and rail transit organizations to be in attendance. In addition, most of the major environmental engineering consulting firms serving the railroad industry will be represented. Environmental researchers from academia and representatives from environmental regulatory agencies are also expected.

    The conference is co-sponsored by The Association of American Railroads (AAR), the American Railway Engineering & Maintenance of Way Association (AREMA), the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRA), the American Railway Development Association (ARDA), and the Railway Association of Canada (RAC).
