SWEP Announcement: PFAS Treatment and Disposal Options

Registration is closed

SWEP-CT invites its members to attend a complimentary lunch-and-learn session on September 13, 2023.  Annielu DeWitt and John Goodno of Clean Harbors will provide a discussion on PFAS treatment and disposal options.  The subject of PFAS treatment and subsequent waste disposal has become one of the most discussed topics in the industry with many different opinions about the best solutions.

Although there are no Federal EPA regulations that classify PFAS compounds as hazardous waste, it is a topic under consideration and evaluation.  In response, recipients of this material are having to make decisions without clear and comprehensive guidance.  Until clear guidance from Federal, State and Local Authorities has been finalized, PFAS material treatment and disposal will be a complicated and nuanced subject.

Facilities that receive waste are also making decisions based on their own internal policies and some are choosing to direct this material to specific types of facilities regardless of it not being classified as a hazardous waste.  When evaluating which treatment and disposal option to choose it is good to be well informed about each of the choices and evaluate what each selection offers.  It is also important to understand that within each alternative there are levels and degrees of regulation and control measures.  This presentation is not meant to direct the practitioner to one option or the other but rather to inform them about the practical considerations such as technology acceptance, levels of regulation, discharge control, viability, and scalability.

This is an interactive program and there will be plenty of time for questions and answers.  The registration fee for non-members is $15.  You will receive the meeting log-in information with your registration confirmation.  Please remember to copy the meeting log-in information into your calendar event reminder prior to the event. We look forward to seeing you then!
