Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) refers to over 5,000 different man-made fluorinated compounds that are often present as mixtures in aqueous-film forming foam (AFFF), various commercial and industrial products and processes, and consequently in the environment. Treatment is a challenge, as many perfluoroalkyl substances are long-lived or partially degrade to form long-lived and highly stable compounds. Granular activated carbon and ion exchange are commonly used to treat PFAS in surface water and groundwater supplies. This presentation will describe new frontiers in PFAS treatment including innovative destructive technologies for PFAS and a lines of evidence approach for assessing the efficacy of PFAS treatment.
