Innovative Water Treatment Strategies for Challenging Conditions and Complex Matrices

December 12 9am PT/12pm ET
Speakers: Srinivasa Varadhan and Jim Deitsch

Engineers have recently adapted treatment strategies in response to evolving water quality regulations for legacy and emerging contaminants as well as the need for sustainable management of water resources. A combination of conventional treatment technologies often serves as the foundation for innovative approaches to treating industrial water, wastewater, groundwater, stormwater, or a combination thereof. This presentation will highlight multiple case studies that illustrate aspects of water treatment strategies to address challenging conditions and water quality matrices.

Global Product Stewardship Challenges, Compliance and Risks – PFAS, Merger and Acquisition Due Diligence, and Beyond

January 9th 9am PT/12pm ET
Speakers: Salvatore Giolando and Michael Wenk

Global Product Stewardship (GPS) is a product-centered approach to environmental protection which calls on those in the product life cycle — manufacturers, retailers, users, and disposers — to share responsibility for reducing the environmental impacts of products. In addition to focusing on chemical and product safety and sustainability, GPS prioritizes compliance with applicable current and emerging regulations. For decades, global chemical control and downstream product regulations, bans, restrictions, and reporting obligations have proliferated, creating major challenges for multinational corporations. This has been further complicated by increased attention to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and other emerging contaminants of concern. These GPS challenges represent a barrier to innovation and a source of high-stake risks for corporations and their investors who are engaging in business transactions, developing and commercializing technologies, dealing with litigation matters, or entering new markets on aggressive timelines.

GPS experts with knowledge of current and emerging regulations and scientific developments can also inform client product development strategies and even give clients a competitive advantage via improved speed to market or reduced testing/ registration costs. Expert attention to global raw material, product and supply chain compliance, and risk factors during transactional due diligence is vital to understanding and managing these risks, especially where new products or new markets are critical to the deal and enterprise success. Once a deal closes, Geosyntec professionals focus on post-merger integration or risk mitigation support as needed.
