Fluorinated Surfactants in Wastewater Treatment Plants

Project Number # 2046

Fate, Behaviour and Ecological Impact of WWTP Derived Flourinated Surfactants

Status:  In Progress

The objective of this research is to determine the impact of polyflourinated alkylated substances (PFAS) in wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluents and biosolids upon the receiving environment. This program of work will allow water utilities, government and regulatory agencies to better undestand the problems associated with PFAS and decide if further effort is required to minimise their impact
