Great Lakes PFAS Summit

 

 

 

NOW ACCEPTING PROPOSALS TO PRESENT

 

 

 


Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) continue to present some of the biggest challenges in chemical contamination across the world. States throughout the nation, including the Great Lakes region, are finding PFAS contamination in a growing number of locations where these persistent chemicals pose a threat to human health and the environment. The Great Lakes PFAS Summit will bring together environmental program managers, policy experts, researchers, and contractors from around the Great Lakes region to share new methods of addressing this contamination and present innovative technical solutions developed to address these “forever” chemicals. 

Participants may include local, state, and federal government officials; environmental consultants and vendors; academic researchers and students; industry managing PFAS contamination; and community organizations.


TOPIC AREAS

  • Human and Ecological Impacts: Example topics: PFAS in fish and wildlife; PFAS in agriculture and plant uptake; impact on tribal communities; outreach to impacted communities; PFAS in food and consumer products
  • Regulation: Example topics: PFAS policy and legislation; restrictions and bans; PFAS alternatives and assessment of toxicology of alternatives; biosolids management
  • Fate and Transport: Example topics: fate and transport in various media; site investigation and rapid characterization; forensics; precursor transformation; vapor intrusion
  • Treatment: Example topics: new, innovative treatment technologies; destruction technologies; pilot/field studies; AFFF clean-out technologies
