PFAS

Per- and Poly-Fluoroalkyl Substances are emerging contaminants, which have gained significant media and public attention in recent years. Their widespread use and potential risks to human health and the environment present a challenge to environmental practitioners.

Predominantly found in Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AFFF) which have seen use on Defence, airport and fire-fighting training sites, PFAS are also used extensively in the manufacturing and industrial sectors and can also be found at landfills and within industrial estates. 

PFAS compounds persist in the environment, are highly mobile and bioaccumulate, making them exceptionally difficult to remove from the environment. The PFAS regulatory environment is also constantly changing as new toxicological information becomes available.

We have had substantial experience nationally and internationally in navigating the assessment and management of PFAS. We are PFAS subject matter experts, having worked on a multitude of high risk and high-profile assessment and remediation projects over the past decade.
