LIFE SOuRCE is an European project focusing on the demonstration and evaluation of sustainable on-site remediation technologies for PFAS-contaminated groundwater
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of more than 5,000 anthropogenic chemicals that pose known risks to human health and the environment.
Areas around industrial production, manufacturing, application sites, e.g., sites where fluorinated fire-fighting foams have been used, or landfills have been found to be particularly contaminated with PFAS, resulting in the contamination of drinking water supplies, both surface waters and groundwater.
LIFE SOuRCE aims to demonstrate innovative cost-efficient and versatile remediation solutions for PFAS contaminated groundwater, within affordable costs and covering the broadest range of contaminated site characteristics.
The project started in September 2021 and has a duration of four years.
