Treatment technologies are needed to address per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in soil and groundwater. Significant investments have been made and are planned to develop and improve technologies for PFAS remediation, drinking water treatment, and waste management. In this environment of research and development, lines of evidence and best practices to assess the effectiveness of PFAS treatment technologies were developed.
In collaboration with PFAS researchers and practitioners, the project team developed lines of evidence, best practices, and other considerations for assessing PFAS treatment technology performance. The project was organized into three tasks:
This project developed clearer guidance, metrics, and checklists for researchers and practitioners to evaluate the fundamental success of PFAS treatment technologies at various stages of technology development. Project results may be relevant to other chemicals of concern beyond PFAS.
This project will result in clearer guidance for researchers and practitioners alike by providing appropriate metrics for evaluating the success of PFAS treatment at different stages of technology development. It will provide technology developers with clear metrics to follow to demonstrate technology efficacy and best practices to avoid common pitfalls. This project will also provide a basis for comparison of the effectiveness of different remedial technologies. Project results may be relevant to other contaminants beyond PFAS.
