(June 26, 2018) The ITRC PFAS team held a one day training event in Raleigh, NC on Friday, June 21. The team partnered with North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality in organizing the workshop at North Carolina State University. The training garnered about 300 attendees, including state and federal regulators, industry leaders, academics, and stakeholders.
The workshop, led by state regulators, industry leaders, and pioneers in PFAS research, provided a comprehensive overview of all things PFAS. Among the topics covered were: site characterization, sampling and analysis, treatment technologies, and toxicity and risk assessment. The training also featured an interactive Risk Communications section. Bud McCarty of North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality presented a local case study on GenX, a major PFAS concern in North Carolina.
