Companies in the plastics and rubber industries can't afford to sit on the sideline; they need to know how PFAS bans and regulations will impact them. The European Union is looking at a regulatory proposal that conceivably could ban all PFAS, the U.S. EPA is stepping up its activity, and some U.S. states are considering their own PFAS regulations. In addition, we’ve reported on litigation resulting in multi-billion dollar awards and settlements.
Our PFAS Live editorial livestream will look at current and likely future PFAS regulations and how they will likely impact companies in the plastics and rubber supply chains. Sectors include packaging, automotive, industrial, medical, recycling and more. The program will be moderated by Bruce Meyer, editor of Rubber News who has covered recent developments in depth. Confirmed speakers include Jay West, senior director, chemical products and technology at the American Chemistry Council, and Peter Schmitt, an expert on health care packaging and managing director of Montesino Associates.
The livestream is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 26, and will be promoted to readers of Plastics News, Rubber News and Sustainable Plastics.
