Investigation of the occurrence of PFAS (per- and polyfluorinated alkyl compounds) in waste streams


The research project aimed to assess the risk of per- and polyfluorinated compounds (PFAS) for humans and the environment. As part of the project, PFAS were identified in certain waste streams, quantified and evaluated against the background of the requirements of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs). Relevant waste streams were identified through a literature review, f...read more
