WOCA 2024 to Feature Two Short Course Options

What’s better than the WOCA Short Course? Two WOCA Short Courses! For the first time in WOCA history, The World of Coal Ash will be offering two separate short course options. WOCA 2024 will feature Short Course 101 and Short Course 301. 

Short Course 101 is designed for those new to the industry or for those who are looking to brush up on the coal ash knowledge. Short Course 301 is recommended for attendees with a basic understanding of groundwater and CCR chemistry. This option is for participants who are veterans in the field and looking into a more technical education on the latest CCR rules. 

As in past years, WOCA Short Course will be held on Monday prior to the beginning of the full WOCA meeting (Monday, May 13, 2024). Attendees must register for the Short Course AND the full WOCA conference if you wish to attend both activities.

Unveiling the New Coal Ash Library

Since the very beginning of WOCA, The World of Coal Ash have kept a repository of all of the talks on the Coal Ash Library. The ash library received a much-needed facelift this summer and early fall. Please check it out at: It is a great resource for anyone in the coal ash industry. And with that historical information, it is the best source for seeing how far technology has come since WOCA 2005.
