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 of the transformation mechanisms, pathways, and kinetics of thermal destruction processes aimed at treatment of materials laden with PFAS. Specifically, the research areas of interest included:
The projects to be funded will be identified by the Fall 2023.
Developing destruction technologies for improved management and treatment of PFAS-laden materials will help facilitate the establishment of more cost-effective and efficient remedial action plans that are protective of human health and the environment. Additionally, the knowledge developed will improve the reliability and environmental sustainability of thermal treatment processes and expedite the cleanup and closure of PFAS-impacted sites.
