PFAS management

Emerging Contaminant PFAS Webinar

June 29, 2022

SCS Engineers’ Luke Montague and Chris Crosby will be a co-presenters of Emerging Contaminant PFAS, a webinar presented by Environmental, Legal, and Insurance Experts.

The webinar is part of Procopio’s Environmental Breakfast Series.  SCS is a sponsor of this event.

Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of thousands of man-made chemicals that accumulate in the environment over time because they do not break down. Thus, PFAS are often referred to as “forever chemicals.”  In recent years PFAS regulations at all levels of government have been implemented. As a result PFAS litigation costs now exceed tens of billions of dollars per year. Businesses at all levels must now be aware of how to manage PFAS compliance and risks.

This webinar will provide a detailed overview of the following: what PFAS are, current and pending PFAS regulations (federal and California), PFAS impacts on the due diligence process (Phase I ESA), available PFAS insurance coverage, and how to manage PFAS legal liability. At the end of the webinar, participants will have the chance to engage with the speakers on any related topics or questions they may have.

SWANA ARF Report on PFAS Management and Treatment Options for Landfill Leachate

November 15, 2021

 

SWANA is optimistic regarding the positive role modern MSW landfills can play in managing solid waste – such as carpeting and clothing – containing PFAS. By disposing of these products in landfills and effectively treating landfill leachate for PFAS removal, the solid waste industry can provide society with an effective and proven method of managing PFAS wastes.

In support of members, the SWANA Applied Research Foundation (ARF) has issued a report summarizing and analyzing management options and treatment technologies that can address PFAS chemicals contained in landfill leachate on November 10, 2021. PFAS Management and Treatment Options for Landfill Leachate is available to SWANA ARF subscribers.

The research findings presented in the resulting report are based on a comprehensive review of the literature and an analysis of the commercially-available PFAS treatment systems and other management options for landfill leachate.

The new report serves as a companion report to one published by the ARF in June 2021 on PFAS Fate and Transport in WTE Facilities, available in SWANA’s Reports List.
