WRF Webcast on PFAS in Biosolids

On Thursday, October 14, from 1:00 – 2:00pm (eastern time), the Water Research Foundation (WRF) will host a free webcast entitled, “PFAS in Biosolids Under a Land Application Scenario: Biotic Weather, Leaching, and Transport.” This webcast will focus on Assessing Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substance Release from Finished Biosolids (project 5042). During the webcast, Dr. Erica McKenzie with Temple University will describe the ongoing efforts to understand what factors influence PFAS partitioning between biosolids and surrounding water; and Dr. Charles Schaefer with CDM Smith will present findings from the completed microcosm study that assessed vertical transport of PFAS through a soil column, simulating land application of biosolids.
