Webinar: Strategies for Optimal Anthropogenic Soil Management

This one-hour webinar will focus on Characterisation Plans, Risk Analysis, Reclamation Projects and Monitoring Plans


Optimal anthropogenic soil management for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) involves a multifaceted approach. Prevention entails strict industrial regulation, monitoring, and promoting less persistent chemicals. Robust waste management, like incineration or secure landfilling, can prevent PFAS from entering soil. Contaminated soil can be treated with in-situ chemical oxidation, phytoremediation, or activated carbon. Risk assessments are vital to tailor these strategies to specific soil and PFAS types. Ongoing research and collaboration between scientists, policymakers, and industry stakeholders are essential for sustainable PFAS-contaminated soil management.

Who should attend?

The webinar is of interest to regulators, industry professionals, developers, consultants, geologists, researchers and academics to scale up their knowledge by listening to the latest on chemical contaminants and their emerging issues.
