NSW PFAS: Sustainable Management for Emerging Contaminants

NSW PFAS: Sustainable Management for Emerging Contaminants
Per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have become one of the most controversial emerging contaminates in Australia. These substances are extremely persistent and the long-term impacts of these contaminants are still relatively unknown.





The purpose of this technical seminars is; to provide an introduction to the origin and nature of PFAS, to investigate the Williamtown PFAS contamination and the implications for the Hunters water supply and to provide an outlook in this space for the future.

This technical seminar will be run at two locations, the Sydney and Newcastle Aurecon Offices, with speakers from both offices presenting during the seminar.

Attendees can look forward to light refreshments and canapes on arrival at both venues, after which the seminar will commence with three leaders from the industry speaking on different aspects of PFAS, followed by a Q&A session.

The event will begin with informal networking. Registrations close March 29th . Limited places available.
