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

Assessing the Effectiveness of Point-of-Use Residential Drinking Water Filters for Perfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs)

Duke and North Carolina State University researchers find that many household filters are only partially effective at removing PFAS compounds from drinking water. Feb 5, 2020 | Environmental Science & Technology Letters
