Emerging Contaminants Update - What lies ahead beyond PFAS in Drinking Water: Microplastics in Source Water & PFAS in Wastewater/Biosolids
Emerging contaminants, such as microplastics and PFAS, have been in the news and at the top of the federal and state regulatory agendas. Microplastics is an emerging issue in our environment and water supplies. While PFAS in drinking water has been well studied, removal of PFAS in biosolids has become a new topic of interest as municipalities have received pushback from land appliers of biosolids.
In this webinar, Dr. Rajat Chakraborti focuses on the risks associated with microplastics pollution in the surface water and the environment, Dr. Sanjay Mohanty provides an overview of processes affecting the transport and removal of PFAS and microplastics in bioinfiltration systems and highlights how their design can be modified to improve their removal. Todd Williams then discusses PFAS regulation development and technology options for removal in biosolids.
