SERDP-ESTCP, 43 pp, 2017

To provide strategic guidance for future research and demonstrations on management and remediation of aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) sites, SERDP and ESTCP conducted a workshop on May 2-3, 2017, in Washington, D.C. The objectives were to (1) review the current state of the science regarding sources of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) contamination, particularly AFFF, (2) evaluate currently available and developing technologies for characterization and remediation of AFFF sites, and (3) identify research and demonstration needs to improve remediation performance and efficiency, and ultimately reduce the cost of managing AFFF sites. Research needs identified during the workshop are described in Section 3.0, and demonstration and technology transfer needs are described in Sections 4.0 and 5.0, respectively. The broad needs categories are fate and transport properties, ecological risk characterization, treatment, and sampling and analytical procedures. https://www.serdp-estcp.org/content/download/45585/425201/file/PFAS%20Workshop%20Report%20Final%20September%202017.pdf
