This National Groundwater Association (NGWA) conference focuses on approaches for the management, mitigation, and remediation of sites contaminated with per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). This conference is intended to provide an opportunity to share lessons learned and present state-of-the-practice in scientific and management approaches to addressing this high-profile issue.
Battelle is proud to be part of the 2019 PFAS Management, Mitigation and Remediation Conference.
We're at the forefront of PFAS research, conducting urgently needed research to better understand the fate and transport of PFAS and minimizing environment and human health concerns.

Plenary Session - Contaminants and Compliance: The 30,000 Ft. Perspective
The lack of a federal standard regarding PFAS has created challenges at all levels of government. This presentation will address the most current legislative options being discussed, as well as some of the most interesting developments on the PFAS remediation side.

Regeneration of Granular Activated Carbon used for PFAS Remediation
The most commonly used treatment for PFAS contaminated water relies on the use of granular activated carbon, GAC; however, there are currently no efficient regeneration options for spent GAC. This research investigates GAC regeneration and performance of regenerated GAC in adsorbing PFOA and PFOS. Learn more.
