PFAS Compounds: Facing the Challenge of an Emerging Contaminant



In the environmental industry, we like to deal in the known - but must occasionally face the unknown. In this episode of Environmental Experts Radio, Host David Coyne welcomes Dr. Karl Markiewicz of the ATSDR to discuss how a set of synthetic chemicals called PFAS has emerged as a pervasive contaminant that is creating unique new challenges to scientists and engineers. We discuss how experts are studying this new concern and are developing treatment solutions to protect both our environment and the public health.
