PFAS Contamination and Treatment w/ Dr. Erin Mackey and Dr. Jim Malley

December 8, 2020

Today, we are diving into the topic of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance, more commonly known as PFAS. We are speaking with Dr. Erin Mackey from Brown and Caldwell (Twitter: @brwncald | Instagram: @Brown_And_Caldwell) and Dr. Jim Malley from the University of New Hampshire (@UofNH) to learn where these compounds come from, why they are such a challenge, how they can be removed from drinking water, and what research is telling us about the future of PFAS control.

COVID-19 episode 1: The IUVA’s COVID-19 Response

April 21, 2020

The IUVA believes that UV disinfection technologies can play a key role in reducing the transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19; so, the association working hard to provide guidance on its safe and effective use. Today on Wavelength, we speak with Dr. Ron Hofmann, President of the IUVA, and Dr. Ted Mao, leader of the IUVA’s COVID-19 Task Force, about the potential roles of UV in this pandemic and the ongoing efforts of the Task Force.
