The title of his discussion is "Environmental Remediation Considerations" regarding PFAS Firefighting Foams.

Eric's co-presenters are Elizabeth Denly of TRC Companies and Kent Sorrenson of Allonia.

Eric Kovich is a Senior Principal Engineer based in Florida with more than 20 years of professional experience focused in the areas of health, safety, security, and environment (HSSE) regulatory compliance, contaminated site assessment and remediation, environmental planning and permitting, and mergers and acquisitions.

ILTA's EHS&S Meeting brings together liquid terminal industry members and related practitioners to help shape ILTA's work on behalf of the industry. In particular, the meeting will highlight new and ongoing environmental issues and regulations and discuss issues including terminal safety, sustainable terminal operations, pipelines, marine terminals, chemical security, and cybersecurity.

Founded in 1974, ILTA is a key resource for the liquid terminal industry, advocating on behalf of terminals and suppliers in Congress and at the federal agencies. ILTA also maintains close working relationships with other organizations that interact with the tank storage industry.

Abstract

PFAS remediation presents levels of challenges that are not present with most other pollutants. The risk of cross-contamination is high due to the intentional addition of PFAS to materials and equipment that are used on site, and the ubiquitous presence of PFAS contamination from various sources that may be wholly separate from activity on the site. Moreover, the extremely low levels being discussed as threshold limits are challenging the limits of detection techniques. This panel is designed to answer your questions about how your company best approaches these challenges for your sites, and how can you stay up to date on new developments.
