PFAS – The Coming StormRead Time: 1 min
Manufacturing processes for several industries use a family of synthetic chemicals called per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Known as “forever chemicals” because they don’t naturally degrade, PFAS can be found in the water, soil, air, and human bodies—virtually everywhere in the world, even Antarctica. Key industries with significant documented discharges include PFAS production and processing, metal finishing, airports, pulp and paper, landfills, and textile and carpet manufacturing.
Of Counsels Michael Blumenthal, David Waxman, and Associate Jessica Johnson from McGlinchey’s Cleveland Office will present “PFAS – The Coming Storm” to the Association of Corporate Counsel on Tuesday, March 28, 2023. This presentation will explore what PFAS are, the impact of PFAS on humans, and the liabilities created by PFAS.
