PFAS continues to rear its head in the solid waste industry, raising questions about what new burdens are in store for waste management facilities, waste water treatment plants, and other solid waste management facilities.  This EBC Solid Waste Management program will update attendees on new and developing PFAS regulations, the insidious nature of PFAS in all things waste, current technologies in PFAS destruction, and what the future holds for both.

There will be ample time for open discussion with attendees during the program.
