Webinar Recording: PFAS Myth Buster

Only £30 (excl VAT) with online card payment discount.

Per- and Poly- fluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) should be considered on post industrial brownfield sites where fire fighting or training for fire fighting took place.

Although not mentioned specifically, they are indicated in several of the DoE Industry Profiles.

Over the past 12 months considerable developments have been reported on the investigation, assessment and remediation of PFAS contamination. A sound understanding is essential to avoid under or over estimating the risks they pose to human health, controlled waters and ecological receptors. 

This ~60min recording of a Professional Practice Webinar originally delivered on 20th September 2019 (NOTE: only access to the recording will be provided, original handouts are not included and the recording does not include the Q&A session at the end of the webinar).
