New project for handling PFAS-contaminated materials

Published: 13 September 2019

The interest in finding workable solutions for managing PFAS-contaminated materials continues to increase. A regional project financed by InterregNord and the Norrbotten Region has been initiated.

The new project is a collaboration between Luleå University of Technology, Oulu University and the University of Tromsø to jointly develop degradation techniques for perflorinated substances in water and contaminated soil and scale up to a commercial application. The project, which is supported by business in all three parts of the region, will last for three years.
