Representatives from Cleanfarms, Transport Canada and Fertilizer Canada will be presenting to conference delegates at the second of two Industry Updates on Thursday, Feb. 13 from 9:45 – 10:30 a.m.

CAAR is pleased to welcome Shane Hedderson, western region business manager for Cleanfarms, to share details of his organization’s efforts to manage the packaging and plastics waste produced by agriculture.

As well, Chris Nowak, means of containment specialist with Transport Canada, will be on hand to discuss upcoming changes to B620 regulations, including changes to training requirements and revised emergency protocols. Updates to the B620 regulations are scheduled to come into effect in early 2020 – don’t miss this timely presentation!

Finally, Catherine King, vice president of public affairs with Fertilizer Canada, will round out the session by presenting an overview of Fertilizer Canada’s initiatives supporting sustainability, regulatory compliance and risk management, and 4R Nutrient Stewardship.
