PFAS, “eternal chemicals”

Spread the love

Ubiquitous in water, food and soil, PFAS are synonymous with a major health and environmental challenge. As an example, last year the German Environment Agency tested more than 1,000 children aged 3 to 17 and found PFAS chemicals in all of them.

One in five children had such high concentrations that damage to their health could no longer be ruled out. In our opinion, the increasingly stringent regulations with regard to them offer opportunities for investment in testing, environmental and public health monitoring, as well as in the cleaning, decontamination and sanitation of facilities. polluted sites.
