OLEOLOGY PFAS process

This is the third article in a three-part series considering the challenges PFAS (per or poly fluorinated alkyl substances) present to the environment and potential solutions. Most short-term acute generation of PFAS is from the use of AFFF (aqueous fluorinated firefighting foam) in firefighting exercises and responses. More chronic and gradual long-term generation occurs from …
