PFAS: The European Perspective
The presentation will provide participants with an overview of the European practices as regards PFAS in the environment and will discuss the regulatory trends in managing this class of emerging contaminant, and the associated technical challenges. The following topics will be presented. • Overview on PFAS in the European environment • Risk assessment of PFAS in the environment • State of the Practice for analysing and remediating PFAS An overview of PFAS in the European environment will be provided and special focus will be given to the Scandinavian countries where substantial monitoring has occurred. In connection with risk assessment and strategy for remedial measures European threshold values for soil, drinking water and surface water will be presented. The presentation will also include an overview of the European State of the practice as regards analytical methods, investigative approaches and treatment options.
