PFAS: Measuring Emissions, Atmospheric Monitoring, Deposition Modeling, Control Techniques, and Managing Impacts Part 2

Add some more info about this item...

Hosted by the RTP Chapter

With the discovery of Poly- and Perfluorinated Alkyl Substances (PFAS) in the environment, and impacts on adjacent drinking water sources in several areas of the United States, more attention has been focused on understanding their sources, fate and human exposure. Many states have taken recent actions to investigate and/or regulate PFAS. In February 2019, EPA released an Action Plan that describes the EPA’s approach to identifying and understanding PFAS.

 

This webinar will be solutions-oriented, focused on the air component of the PFAS releases. The speakers will discuss emission testing for PFAS, air quality modeling and deposition, ambient sampling, and compliance. In addition, the speakers will provide information regarding state and EPA actions or planned actions that will impact air quality assessments and other air quality related PFAS topics.

 

Presented by: Ian MacGregor, Senior Scientist and Project Manager, Battelle; Anjuliee Mittelman, Ph.D., Environmental Engineer, U.S. Department of Transportation’s Volpe Center; Michael Pjetraj, Deputy Director, North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality; Bryan Vining, Ph.D., Laboratory Director, Enthalpy Analytical, LLC.

Moderated by: Kevin Eldridge, Principal Consultant, ERM NC, Inc.
