Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) in the Environment - Part 2

Over the past few years, a tremendous amount of research has been conducted to better understand PFAS in the environment. Fate and effects are better understood, analytical methodologies have been improved, treatment methods are more effective with more options. This two-part session highlighted the latest innovations addressing these issues, and included summaries of recent efforts on ecotoxicity, characterization, as well as fielded treatment technologies such as on-site incineration alternatives, treatment trains, and improved sorbent technologies.
