PFAS: PER- AND POLYFLUOROALKYL SUBSTANCES
Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC) Website, 2018

ITRC is developing this series of fact sheets to summarize the latest science and emerging technologies for PFASs. ITRC has updated one of the three fact sheets produced in 2017—Naming Conventions and Physical and Chemical Properties—and has released three additional technical fact sheets on the following topics:
  • Environmental Fate and Transport (18 pages).
  • Site Characterization Considerations, Sampling Precautions, and Laboratory Analytical Methods (9 pages).
  • Remediation Technologies and Methods (12 pages).
Translation of the fact sheets into Spanish is underway. Publication of a fact sheet on PFAS-containing aqueous film-forming foam used in firefighting is anticipated in August 2018. http://pfas-1.itrcweb.org/fact-sheets/
