A Closer Look at New and Not so New CEC’s: PFAS, Microplastics and Solvents

Wednesday, October 28, 2020 @ 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
This webinar is part of a research series sponsored by AWWA Water Science and the Joint Section Research Committee.

The term “pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs)” has been used as a synonym for contaminants of emerging concerns (CECs) in the water industry. The environmental and public health communities have focused more attention on newer “emerging” classes of contaminants, including per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and microplastics. This webinar series features presentations by leading researchers on three CECs in water—including solvents (trichloroethylene and 1,4-dioxane), microplastics, and PFAS. Learn More.
