PFASs are found in textiles, pans, makeup – and now also in human blood. They are suspected of causing cancer and disrupting the immune system. Accumulation also occurs from various sources into groundwater.
SFC Umwelttechnik, together with IonOXess GmbH, University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences Vienna (Department of Water-Atmosphere-Environment), MCI Management Center Innsbruck (Department of Environmental, Process and Energy Engineering) and University of Innsbruck (Institute of Analytical Chemistry and Radiochemistry), is researching innovative methods for the concentration and removal of PFAS compounds of various types from groundwater.
The project PFAS-Trap (C220002) is funded by Kommunalkredit Public Consulting (KPC) and has a duration of 3 years.
