In 2024, the Danish Environmental Protection Agency will launch eight crucial projects to enhance understanding of PFAS (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) risks and contamination, as recommended by a dedicated knowledge task force. These projects will explore diverse aspects such as PFAS in agricultural products, PFAS screening in food, and population-level monitoring. Additional initiatives include developing new analytical methods for PFAS, modeling PFAS transport in contaminated lands, and studying diffuse pollution from historical PFAS use. These efforts aim to fill significant knowledge gaps identified by the task force, which submitted a report proposing 12 projects to address these gaps effectively within the current financial year. The outcomes of these projects are expected to inform and refine PFAS management strategies by relevant authorities.
