AEG is pleased to invite you to the Environmental Symposium on Dioxane, which will be presented as a half day webinar. 4 PDHs and Continuing Education Units will be available.
1,4-Dioxane (DXA) is a manufacturing impurity still found in many shampoos, personal care products and food containers; it is also a legacy contaminant at many old solvent spills, and due to groundwater contamination, and has impacted millions of people’s drinking water. AEG’s cross-section of experts will trace the origin of this widespread and notoriously difficult to remove Emerging Contaminant. Current EPA and State regulatory approaches will be examined, and the groundbreaking citizens’ action on Long Island that resulted in the nation’s first drinking water standard for dioxane will be highlighted. Dioxane remediation technologies around the globe will be surveyed, and an innovative new dioxane biofilter for onsite wastewater treatment will be introduced. The solution to the Dioxane problem is not yet apparent, but AEG’s Dioxane Symposium will bring you up to date on this now widespread contaminant.
