A North Pole area environmental remediation company has been approved to incinerate PFAS contaminated soil. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, Moose Creek based Organic Incineration Technology is the first facility permitted to burn soils tainted by PFAS containing firefighting foams, which have polluted numerous sites around Alaska, including several in the Interior.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
