Regulatory Landscape for PFAS in Biosolids and Effluent/Reuse - On Demand
Recorded On: 07/15/2021
1.2 contact hours towards ECI & LAB certifications
This session will include:
• Regulatory developments across the US and in California for drinking water, wastewater effluent, and biosolids.
• Treatability in wastewater and reuse applications.
• Recent findings and regulatory results.
• Interconnection between PFAS and groundwater standards, greenhouse gas emission reduction goals (SB 1383), and organics management.
By attending, you will gain an understanding of PFAS characteristics, sources for wastewater, options for PFAS source control and treatment, and the difference between long-chain and short chain PFAS compounds in biosolids.
And the learning objectives can be updated to:
At the conclusion of the seminar, participants will be able to:
• Understand basic characteristics of PFAS and their sources to wastewater.
• Understand options for PFAS source control and treatment.
• Know the difference between long-chain and short-chain PFAS compounds in biosolids and why size matters.
