Webinar Series on PFAS
Webinar Series on PFAS – Assessment, Treatment Options and Lessons Learned
REGENESIS has been working with several consultancies, problem holders and universities around the world on the challenges that PFAS poses in the environment. Together, we have completed a number of successful laboratory, pilot and full-scale applications.
Webinar Recordings on Demand
In our PFAS webinar series, guest speakers explain more about these challenging contaminants, including lessons learned during site investigation, in situ remediation and modelling tools for treatment evaluation.

PFAS Regulations over Space and Time
In this webinar we were pleased to have as a special guest speaker Rosa Gwinn, PhD PG, Global PFAS Technical Lead at AECOM. Dr. Gwinn’s presentation looked at where PFAS regulations started and where they may be headed globally, including the United States. She was joined by Scott Wilson, President & CEO at REGENESIS, who shared the latest developments about colloidal activated carbon’s use in the remediation industry as a low-cost method of eliminating PFAS risk.
Six Pilot-Scale Studies Evaluating the In-Situ Treatment of PFAS in Groundwater
In this webinar, guest speaker Rick McGregor, President of InSitu Remediation Services Ltd. discusses the details of a series of pilot-scale field studies he has carried out, to evaluate different in situ remedial approaches to treat PFAS in groundwater.
PlumeStop® Longevity for In-Situ PFAS Plume Treatment
In this webinar we were pleased to have as a special guest speaker Grant Carey, Ph.D., President of Porewater Solutions. His presentation discussed PlumeStop longevity for in-situ PFAS plume treatment. He was joined by Ryan Moore, PFAS Program Manager at REGENESIS, who discussed in-situ treatment of PFAS using colloidal activated carbon to eliminate PFAS risk at a low cost.
A State Regulator’s Perspective on PFAS in Minnesota
In this webinar we were pleased to have as a special guest speaker Ginny Yingling, Senior Hydrogeologist at Minnesota Department of Health. Her presentation shared a state regulator’s perspective on PFAS in Minnesota. She was joined by Scott Wilson, President & CEO at REGENESIS, who discussed the extent to which colloidal activated carbon has been accepted by the remediation industry as a low-cost method of eliminating PFAS risk.
Challenges of PFAS in Groundwater – Lessons learned for Michigan’s Survey of Community Water
Guest presenters Steve Silver of the Michigan Dept. of Environmental Quality, and Patricia Byrnes Lyman, of the Michigan Dept of Military and Veterans Affairs (US), discuss the challenges of PFAS in groundwater and lessons learned from Michigan’s survey of community water: Discovery of unacceptable levels of emerging contaminants like per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in a community water supply; Immediate and longer-term actions to protect public health and ensure a reliable supply of safe drinking water; Lessons learned during Michigan’s survey of all its community water supplies in 2018.
Successful In Situ Remediation of PFAS in Canada
Remediation Expert Rick McGregor, President of InSitu Remediation Services Ltd in Canada, presents a PFAS remediation case study of a former industrial furniture manufacturing site in Canada on which a fire training facility was co-located. The site was to be remediated for petroleum hydrocarbon contamination when analysis indicated that PFOA and PFOS was present within the groundwater. Using direct push technology, Liquid Activated Carbon along with ORC Advanced was injected at 50 locations within the silty sand aquifer to address the groundwater contamination. Ongoing validation testing (now over 34 months) has shown that the PFOA and PFOS, as well as the petroleum hydrocarbons, had been rapidly reduced and maintained at below detection limits.
Eliminating Risk of PFAS Contamination – Low Cost In-Situ Remediation with Colloidal Activated Carbon
In this technical webinar, Scott Wilson, President & CEO of REGENESIS discusses eliminating risk of PFAS contamination in soil and groundwater via low-cost in-situ remediation with colloidal activated carbon. By coating flux zones of an aquifer with colloidal activated carbon, a permeable sorption barrier is created in-situ, purifying groundwater as it passively migrates. PFAS constituents from up-gradient source zones are rapidly sorbed to the carbon and removed from the mobile dissolved phase. By removing PFAS from the mobile phase, the route of exposure to down-gradient receptors is eliminated, thereby eliminating the down-gradient public health risk associated with PFAS.
In Situ Remediation: Modeling and Visualization Tools (including PFAS case study)
In the webinar, guest speaker Grant Carey, PhD, President of Porewater Solutions and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Toronto discusses Visual Bio™ and ISR-MT3DMS™, two visualization and modelling tools for evaluating remediation performance. As part of this, he discusses how to reliably predict the treatment longevity of a PFAS impacted site in Canada where PlumeStop was applied in barrier formation.
PFAS Perspectives: Lessons Learned from a Decade of Experience
In this live US webinar, we are pleased to have guest speakers Jack Sheldon, Senior Remediation Specialist at Antea Group, and Caron Koll, PG, LSP, and PFAS Lead at Antea Group. Their presentation discusses best practices from their experience working with PFAS contaminants in groundwater. Through more than a decade of developing sampling programs and interpreting PFAS analytical data, many lessons have been learned and this webinar focuses on a few of those lessons.
Emerging PFAS Legal and Regulatory Strategies: Updates for the Regulatory Community
Charles M. Denton, Esq., partner at Barnes & Thornburg LLP and immediate past chair of the firm’s national Environmental Law Department provides an overview of the emerging legal and regulatory considerations for PFAS contamination and key topics for the regulatory community, including businesses and local governments. He is joined by Chad Northington, Southeast District Technical Manager at REGENESIS, who will discuss low-cost, in situ remediation of PFAS using colloidal activated carbon.
Performing Due Diligence to Manage PFAS Liability Risk
In this webinar we are pleased to have a special presentation from Ned Witte, Attorney at Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. Ned’s presentation will discuss current trends and best practices for performing due diligence to manage PFAS liability risk. He will be joined by Ryan Moore, PFAS Program Manager at REGENESIS, who will discuss proven, low-cost in situ remediation solutions to mitigate risk from PFAS contamination in groundwater.
PFAS Contamination in Minnesota, US: Lessons Learned, Fate and Transport, and Reducing Exposure
In this webinar Virginia (Ginny) Yingling, Senior Hydrogeologist in the Environmental Health Division of the Minnesota Department of Health, discusses: The State of Minnesota’s investigation of an area of PFAS-contaminated groundwater that covers over 150 sq. miles; Challenges faced by Minnesota Department of Health in communicating the risk of PFAS to the public; Lessons learned from the state’s investigation of a chemical production facility; Key aspects of unique PFAS fate & transport behaviour observed, and successes in reducing exposures. Ginny is joined by Kristen Thoreson, PhD, Director of Research and Development at REGENESIS.
