Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a class of more than 4700 chemical compounds originating from anthropogenic sources. PFAS have been used extensively in a variety of products and industries, due to their high chemical stability and resistance towards degradation by heat or corrosion. On the downside, these chemical properties imply non-degradability and PFAS have been increasingly linked to cause severe illnesses. As a result, the presence of these compounds in plants and animals especially in areas close to industrial and military locations and the human body all around the world has been recognized as a major challenge for future remediation work.
BAM is working on the development of analytical techniques for PFAS as well as remediation of PFAS contaminated matrices and is currently a member of the PerFluSan network (https://www.perflusan.net) for PFAS analytics and remediation within Europe. In order to analyze PFAS contamination in different matrices, several analytical methods are available. Our main goal within this workshop will be the discussion of advantages and drawbacks of current state-of-the-art methods in contrast to various novel and less well-known techniques for PFAS analytics..
More infos and registration
The workshop is free of charge.
The registration can be done via WebEx.
Max. 40 persons on site. Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic we might change the workshop to a full online event in August 2021.
