How can PFAS be destroyed?

Unfortunately, perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances are persistent contaminants, as some take over a thousand years to break down in the environment.

For this reason, they are very challenging to remove from soil and water, even with the most innovative technologies.

Even so, the Environmental Protection Agency is striving to eliminate PFAS from military bases with severe contamination nationwide by using the following methods and technologies:

When it comes to water supplies, filters with activated carbon or reverse osmosis membranes were found to be quite effective in removing PFAS. Furthermore, a new study found that PFAS can be removed from the environment by using sodium hydroxide, also known as lye, a chemical used to make soap, and dimethyl sulfoxide, a substance approved as a drug for bladder pain syndrome. These are harmless chemicals that will not cause any contamination if they are employed to remove PFAS from military bases.
