The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold a webinar on August 17, 2022, on the “EPA PFAS Strategic Roadmap: Research Tools and Resources.” EPA states that “[a] growing body of scientific evidence suggests that exposure at certain levels to specific [per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)] can adversely impact human health and other living things.” The webinar will provide a brief overview of EPA’s PFAS Strategic Roadmap and ongoing efforts by EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) to address key PFAS research needs for environmental decision-making. During the webinar, ORD scientists will highlight two recently released data sources: EPA’s PFAS Thermal Treatment Database (PFASTT), which contains information on the treatability of PFAS via various thermal processes, and Systematic Evidence Map for PFAS, which summarizes available toxicity evidence for approximately 150 different PFAS. Recent updates to other PFAS resources will also be shared. Registration is now open.
