IHEA’s Annual Meeting in Savannah

The Industrial Heating Equipment Association (IHEA) announces its 2024 Annual Meeting at the Hotel DeSoto in Savannah, Georgia, March 20-22. Nestled in the heart of Savannah’s Historic District, the Hotel DeSoto is a short stroll away from celebrated squares, art museums, boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and the city’s largest green space.

This year’s meeting promises to be a game-changer as IHEA elevates sustainability and decarbonization efforts to new heights.

“The IHEA annual meeting brings together industrial peers to explore the most pertinent issues and trends in the industrial heat processing community,” said IHEA President Brian Kelly. “The great value in this is the diversity of the attendees and their willingness to share their experiences. With so much talk of sustainability and decarbonization in the heat-processing industry in recent years, IHEA’s focus on this during the meeting will provide discussion and information you won’t want to miss.”

In addition to the timely presentations, IHEA members will convene for committee work and enjoy IHEA’s social gatherings to visit with industry peers and welcome new faces to the association.

February 15
Sustainability & Decarbonization Webinar Series — Direct Air Capture & Storage

To keep global temperature rise below 1.5°C, we’ll need to remove 10-20% of CO2 emitted each year – billions of tons of CO2 annually. To meet this challenge, we’re building low-cost Direct Air Capture technology (DAC) that will permanently remove CO2 at this scale. Learn more about this exciting technology and how you can get involved.
