Firefighting formulations used for military operations on Department of Defense (DoD) installations historically contain per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in order to meet the performance requirements of MIL-F-24385F. However, the PFAS in aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) poses risks to human health and the environment. SERDP and ESTCP have launched a number of projects over the years to research and demonstrate viable replacements for AFFF. More

Invasive species threaten the balance of all ecosystems. In island ecosystems, native species have evolved in isolation, unequipped to fend off new invasive predators, and risk extinction without space to which to retreat.  More


Abiotic processes play an important role in the natural attenuation of groundwater contaminants, and there is a demand for new and improved methods of measurement and/or enhancement of abiotic natural attenuation processes.  More
