The Biden Administration has already taken steps toward strengthening EHS regulations and it won’t be long before it focuses on PFAS. Why? Because these per- and poly-fluorinated alkyl substances are heavily used and are showing up in the most unexpected places, including the human body. What’s worse is that PFAS don’t break down under most environmental conditions. They are here, and they’re here to stay.
New EHS mandates will likely affect all industries, even those that don’t use or produce these chemicals. At some point, you may be affected by evolving EHS regulations and PFAS remediation mandates. Are you ready?
Join our one-hour webinar for timely insights from PFAS experts, Dave Kempisty, PhD, PE, and Matthew Myers, CHMM, QEP, of Evoqua Water Solutions.
Their vital and informative presentation will help you understand:
- The nature of PFAS and how it is used
- Its negative effects on human health and the environment
- How emerging toxicology is likely to change PFAS policies and regulations
- PFAS removal and remediation strategies
We’ll conclude with a Q&A session to help you assess how PFAS should be prioritized in your organization.
