Paper product production identified as the main source of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in a Norwegian lake: source and historic emission tracking

Factory producing PFAS coated paper products was identified as main source of PFAS in a contaminated sediment bed. December 9, 2020 | Environmental Pollution

Mass-Based, Field-Scale Demonstration of PFAS Retention within AFFF-Associated Source Areas

Study used concentration data via a high-resolution sampling and analytical protocol to estimate the PFAS mass distribution in source and downgradient areas of a former firefighter training area. December 3, 2020 | Environmental, Science & Technology

Software Comparison for Nontargeted Analysis of PFAS in AFFF-Contaminated Soil

Study analyzed soil contaminated with PFAS based aqueous film forming foam and compared the results to produced data analysis workflows using FluoroMatch and Compound Discovered, as established nontargeted analysis program. November 23, 2020 | American Society for Mass Spectrometry

Destruction of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs) in Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) with UV-Sulfite Photoreductive Treatment

Study finds that certain PFAS compounds contained in firefighting foam are readily degraded by applying UV-sulfite to diluted foam. Other structures, most notably short-chain PFAS, were more recalcitrant. April 28, 2020 | Environmental Science & Technology
