OVERVIEW OF IN SITU AND EX SITU TECHNOLOGIES IN DEVELOPMENT FOR THE TREATMENT OF PER- AND POLYFLUOROALKYL SUBSTANCES
Houtz, E. | California EPA Webinar, 5 April, Sacramento, CA, 2019.

This webinar covers conventional and innovative technologies to address PFASs in water and soil. Remediation of groundwater often requires a treatment train, combining conventional sorbents and engineered filtration with more innovative and emerging remediation solutions for PFASs. While in situ soil stabilization is a promising technique, ongoing research and development is being conducted to evaluate the longevity of fixation amidst circumneutral pH and biotransformation, which may enhance PFAS dissolution. Remediation of PFAS source zones and the associated groundwater plumes presently requires multiple technologies to protect human health in a cost-conscious manner.
