Use of Class 1 Hazardous Waste Injection Wells for Aqueous PFAS Wastes
Class 1 Hazardous Waste injection wells have been used to manage constituents of concern for decades. It is overwhelmingly the largest method to manage hazardous waste in the United States. The concerns over PFAS discharges to water and air transport have increased interest in using underground injection. The EPA Interim Guidance on managing PFAS listed underground injection as the technology with the "least uncertainty" compared with other common and available technologies. The attendee will gain insight into the way in which underground injection is being used to manage PFAS from a number or sources. The presentation will also address the limitations of the technology and a brief comparison of Class 1 Hazardous and Class 1 Non-Hazardous injection wells.
