What Are PFAS?

PFAS are a growing concern due to their potential health effects and persistence in the environment. As a result, it is critical to have a comprehensive understanding of where PFAS are being used and how they are impacting your surroundings. PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are synthetic compounds that have been in use for more than 50 years and are present in a variety of goods, including wire insulation, non-stick cookware, cleaning products, textiles, leather, and paper.

The solubility of PFAS in water is a major concern as it allows them to travel long distances, contaminating different bodies of water and potentially entering the food chain. This means that the effects of PFAS can be far-reaching and have serious consequences for both human health and the environment.

How can you be exposed to PFAS?

  • Drinking water that is contaminated with PFAS
  • Eating seafood sourced from PFAS contaminated water
  • Inhaling and/or swallowing contaminated soil or dust
  • Using certain consumer products such as stain repellent for carpets
  • Eating or drinking from packaging that contains PFAS
  • Eating food that is grown or animals that are raised on properties that are PFAS contaminated

Risk Factors

Our team of experts is equipped with the latest technology and knowledge to measure and monitor various variables, including concentration, exposure level, mobility, toxicity, leachability, and the potential for bioaccumulation.

We provide comprehensive assessments and advice to help you understand the potential risks and develop appropriate strategies to manage and mitigate them.

How We Can Help

Investigating of PFAS involves:

  • Undertaking environmental monitoring. This monitoring provides quantitative and qualitative data and the distribution, concentrations, and types of PFAS
  • Determining the locations of PFAS on site
  • Understanding the environmental factors that may be impacted by any contamination
  • Ensuring any PFAS waste or contaminated materials are remediated to prevent release and properly disposed of
  • Providing recommendations for the management of the PFAs on site, including disposal and remediation
  • Undertake appropriate monitoring to check the effectiveness of any management measures put in place.

At your location, the concentration of PFAS, its exposure level, mobility, toxicity, leachability, and the potential for bioaccumulation must be closely measured and monitored. These variables determine the potential harm that PFAS can cause to human health and the environment. By tracking and analysing these variables, you can stay ahead of the risks and take necessary actions to prevent exposure and contamination.
