U.S. EPA'S SCIENCE-BASED APPROACH TO UNDERSTANDING AND MANAGING ENVIRONMENTAL RISK FROM PFAS
Gillespie, A. | RemTEC Summit, February 26-28, 2019, Denver, Colorado. 25 slides, 2019

This presentation discusses EPA's approach to PFAS, focusing on different lines of research, development, and technical assistance work being conducted to enable EPA and their partners at the state, tribal, and community level to take action on PFAS. Work includes development and validation of laboratory analytical methods to detect and quantify PFAS in environmental media; application of computational toxicology and exposure models to better understand the potential for risk from different PFAS; development of standard toxicity reference values for use in assessing risk; and development, testing, and documentation of the efficacy and cost of different methods for treating, remediating, or otherwise reducing exposures throughout the PFAS lifecycle. https://www.remtecsummit.com/ext/resources/Static-Pages/presentations/Andrew-Gillespie.pdf
