Per-and poly-fluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) contamination of soil and water is an important issue of significant concern across Australia and around the world. Swathes of agricultural land have been contaminated by PFAS substances being deposited in local water supplies.

Sectors from the Defence to Aviation are now contributing to the hefty remediation costs in an attempt to clean-up contaminated soil and water.

The PFAS Forum set to be held on the 13 November 2020 in Sydney, will bring together representatives from across industries aiming to address the situation alongside the Government environmental departments and remediation companies to explore the best route forward, innovative practices for reducing contamination and routes of collaboration between the sectors.

With the easing of restrictions and the continual improvement in the Australian situation regarding COVID-19, we have rescheduled the PFAS Forum to 13 November 2020 at the Radisson Blu Plaza in Sydney. All registrations have been transferred to the new date. If you have any queries, please contact our Customer Service team on 02 9080 4307 or

The event will be accessible live at the venue on the day or via a webcast and interactive meeting rooms.
