This EBC Emerging Contaminants webinar will provide the latest updates on the analytical methods available for the analysis of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in a variety of matrices, including soil, sediment, drinking water, groundwater, surface water, wastewater, biota, air, and products. This webinar will include quantitative and qualitative PFAS analyses.  We will discuss the different targeted PFAS methods that measure concentrations of individual PFAS in solid and aqueous matrices, such as EPA Methods 533, 537, 1633 (just finalized), and ASTM D8420. The benefits, limitations, and challenges associated with total oxidizable precursor (TOP) assay and total organic fluorine (TOF) analyses will be highlighted.  Some of the challenges with the analytical approaches (OTM-45 and the new OTM-50) for air emissions from stationary sources will be presented.  Leaching of PFAS has become a hot topic and we will look at some leaching methods available for this evaluation.  Attendees will learn the rationale for the selection of a particular method.  Finally, we will end with a look at how to evaluate the quality and usability of the analytical data you receive back from the laboratory to make important project decisions.

A robust panel discussion with the audience will conclude the webinar.
