SERDP FY 2024 New Start Projects
Environmental Restoration (ER) Program Area
The objective of this Statement of Need (SON) was to develop an improved understanding on how different waste stream characteristics and physical and biogeochemical conditions affect the efficiency and effectiveness of PFAS destruction in non-thermal destructive treatment processes. Specifically, the goal was to address the following research needs:
The projects to be funded will be identified by the Fall 2023.
Research will lead to improved management of PFAS sites by facilitating the establishment of more cost-effective and efficient remedial action plans that are protective of human health and the environment. The improved remediation approaches that will be developed will increase the reliability of treatment processes and expedite the cleanup and closure of DoD impacted sites.
