Title Environmental Testing Lab Presents FREE Lunch and Learn on PFAS in Drinking Water
Introduction EMSL Analytical provides laboratory testing to identify PFAS, PFNA, PFOS, PFOA, GenX and many other chemicals.

Cinnaminson, NJ, November 22nd , 2019

EMSL Analytical, Inc. is hosting a free lunch and learn presentation along with a question and answer session related to perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in drinking water. This event will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 4th at its corporate headquarters located in the greater Philadelphia area.

PFAS chemicals can be found in a wide range of materials including food packaging, industrial production facilities, and commercial household products, especially non-stick products and household cleaners. A major source of these compounds building up in ground water is from fire-fighting foams used at airports and military bases where firefighter training occurs. These chemicals can seep into the ground water, polluting wells and drinking water sources.

Phillip Worby, EMSL’s Environmental Chemistry Laboratory Director for Lead and Chemistry, and Owen McKenna, EMSL’s National Organics Manager, will be go over PFAS compounds and why the compounds are important. The presentation will also cover exposure, health effects, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) action limits and New Jersey Action Limits.

The instructors will break down the differences between EPA 537 and EPA 537.1 test methods. The presentation will end with sampling information and EMSL’s analytical options. The lunch and learn includes a question and answer session at the conclusion of the presentation.
