Toxfree offers a suite of PFAS treatment methods for decontaminating and destroying PFAS in water, soil, and foam.
Toxfree PFAS Treatment:
The chemicals within the PFAS compound are not broken down and require decontamination and treatment. PFAS treatment is necessary as the chemicals may pose risk to humans and the environment.
Per- and polyfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) or more specifically Per- and polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs), are emerging pollutants of increasing public health and environmental concern due to recent reports of their global distribution, persistence, toxicity and bioaccumulation potential. Of these Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) are the latest chemicals categorized as Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and listed under the Stockholm Convention.
These compounds have been produced commercially since the 1950s and used in a variety of consumer and industrial applications, Scotchgard™ to protect fabric, furniture, and carpets from stains, mist suppressants in the metal plating industry, hydraulic fluid in the aviation industry, surfactants in the photography industry, and fire-fighting foams.
Known fire-fighting applications with PFC’s include Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AFFF™) and Alcohol-Type Concentrate (ATC™) that were used to extinguish Class B fires that involve flammable fuels. With its ability to migrate in water PFAS can also be found in soil, concrete, groundwater, surface water, and sediments.
