VBC 2020 Virtual Information Session Scheduled for 9-23

The Virginia Biosolids Council is pleased to present its 2020 Virtual Information Session Wednesday, September 23 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 NOON. The webinar will feature two presentations on matters associated with wastewater recovery and biosolids recycling, and we invite your members to participate; there is no cost to participate.

Dr. Greg Evanylo of Virginia Tech will be speaking. A member of the W4170 research group, Dr. Evanylo has conducted research on the effects of byproduct carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, and heavy metals on plant, soil, water, and air quality, and crop stress amelioration.

PFAS are widely used in a variety of industrial and consumer applications for over 50 years (e.g., fabrics, paper goods, cookware). They are now found throughout the world in a variety of biological and environmental matrices. Dr. Linda Lee, one of the webinar presenters and a Purdue professor of agronomy, received a $1.6 million grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to understand the ways in which these agricultural applications may affect surface ground waters that feed rural drinking wells in Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Dr. Lee will provide information on ongoing research activities.
