STATUS OF SERDP AND ESTCP EFFORTS ON PFAS AND INNOVATIVE APPROACHES FOR THE TREATMENT OF WASTE DERIVED FROM PFAS SUBSURFACE INVESTIGATIONS
Leeson, A. and D. Major, SERDP & ESTCP Webinar Series, Webinar #103, November 2019

SERDP & ESTCP sponsored two presentations. The first featured an overview of several projects aimed at developing a better understanding of the occurrence, fate, and transport, remedial treatment options, and ecotoxicity at aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF)-impacted sites and presented key findings from the May 2017 SERDP and ESTCP sponsored workshop. The second presentation featured a project to treat PFAS contamination in soils as well as investigation derived wastes, such as drill cuttings and spent granular activated carbon (GAC). The project evaluated GAC as a surrogate fuel to support smoldering above the 900C threshold required for PFAS destruction. PFAS adsorbed to GAC and then mixed with sand, or PFAS-contaminated soil mixed with uncontaminated GAC were tested. https://www.serdp-estcp.org/Tools-and-Training/Webinar-Series/11-07-2019
