Austin Meeting In Person

EPA’s hazardous substance designations shake up industry

 

What happens when the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designates a new hazardous substance, which is used or stored at almost every industrial Site in America? To help assist companies and stakeholders in understanding what ramifications will occur from the proposed EPA rulemaking, we have summarized the proposed actions into what this means for industry. By designating perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS), their isomers, and salts as “hazardous substances” under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), also often known as Superfund, it will have vast effects including changes to storage, reporting, permitting, transporting, spilling, environmental cleanup practices, and regulations around PFOA and PFOS. We will discuss:

  • What PFOA & PFOS are
  • What the EPA is proposing 
  • What will change concerning storage, permitting, and spilling
  • How to best prepare your company
  • How Waste professionals are prepared to help Industry
