Enrolment in Doctoral degree: SLU
1) To develop an innovative technique for in-situ remediation of PFASs contaminated groundwater based on funnel-and-gate treatment using new innovative sorbents, 2) To evaluate innovative treatment techniques including thermal treatment, washing and ultrasonic cleaning for infrastructure decontamination of materials contaminated with PFASs such as building materials and aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) fire sprinkler systems. 3) To apply the developed treatment technique for the removal of PFASs at GEHC.
SLU/Lutz Ahrens (M24, 8 w) exchange of information and working together with ESR11 to validate field applications for the removal of PFASs. VU/Hamers (M18, 8 w) to perform a number of in vitro toxicity bioassays before and after remediation. Visits to a wastewater treatment facility (Svenskt Vatten) (M12 after ATC3) and UFZ/Berger (after ATC6 in M24).
