Abstracts for the Presentations


Emerging contaminants are being targeted by environmental regulatory agencies.  For those chemicals with scant toxicological data on the effects to human health, the regulatory community will take a conservative approach for establishing health goals or action levels, as well as implement stringent restrictions on the release of these unregulated chemicals that can be costly to manufacturers.  One such emerging chemical is GenX, which is in a group of chemicals referred to as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).  Upon discovery of this unregulated chemical in drinking-water plants along the Cape Fear River in North Carolina, Chemours was identified as the source of GenX and has been targeted by state regulatory agencies and is subject to third-party lawsuits to mitigate releases; to pay for state-directed costs to assess the distribution of GenX to surface water, soil and air; and to be responsible for cleanup costs.
