Fighting PFAS: Where should our money go?

Systems Failures

PFAS comes from consumer products and manufacturing processes that have been used in the US for decades. These hazardous compounds are now ubiquitous in our soils, air, and water. Federal and state governments will need to spend billions in taxpayer money to remove these "forever chemicals" from our natural resources. But, where is the money best spent? In this session, panelists will discuss where to draw the battlelines and get the most value from the limited resources available to mitigate these chemicals. This discussion will include the emerging technologies that are available to ultimately separate, concentrate, and destroy PFAS in our environment and how to effectively communicate the risks of PFAS to the public.
