Stationary Source Sampling and Analysis including PFAS

Dr. William Anderson

Sr. Chemical & Analytical Consultant, Eurofins Environment Testing America

Dr. William Anderson has 38 years of experience as a consultant in the environmental laboratory testing industry.

Dr. Anderson's particular expertise is in analytical methodology and supporting quality assurance related to incineration and thermal treatment testing programs. He has extensive project experience regarding the analytical program design of incinerator and ambient air permitting activities. As an analytical chemist, he directly participates in the design and implementation of new analytical methods, project specific testing, and the supporting quality assurance protocols. Much of the work conducted by Dr. Anderson and his colleagues is used to generate legally defensible performance reports that are judged by various regulatory agencies, including the EPA and state authorities.  Dr. Anderson was the principal scientist in the development of stack sampling methods for the characterization of Per- and Poly- Fluorinated Alkyl Substances (PFAS).  The PFAS stack sampling method developed in the Knoxville Laboratory was the general design basis used for the EPA’s OTM-45 method which was recently released.

Dr. Anderson earned his Ph.D. degree in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Tennessee.
