ASTM | Determination of PFAS in the Environment
A new ASTM International standard will help laboratories to better determine the presence of polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in environmental samples. ASTM’s committee on environmental assessment, risk management and corrective action (E50) developed the new standard.
PFAS are a large, complex group of compounds found in water, air, fish, and soil throughout the world. Additionally, some consumer, commercial, and industrial products contain PFAS. These widely used chemicals persist, breaking down slowly. The ongoing, expanding nature of PFAS environmental awareness and the need for more comprehensive investigations have caused increased demand for PFAS environmental sampling and analysis.
