Substances from the PFAS group are almost impossible to dissolve and are also called “perpetual chemicals”. These harmful chemicals pose increasing threats to fresh water reservoirs in many countries .

In several areas of Denmark, PFOS has moved into groundwater. Are you looking to extract PFAS / PFOS from soils, maybe you should have a look at our EDGE extraction system.
