Objectives: To determine the release of legacy, alternative and unknown PFASs to the atmosphere and consequences for near- and far-field human exposure. Releases of PFASs to air from fluoropolymer manufacturing and municipal incinerators are of particular interest.
Planned secondment(s): VU/Leonards (M14, 4w) sampling near fluoropolymer manufacturing plant in Netherlands. RCEES/Cai (M17, 4w) sampling near fluoropolymer manufacturing sites in China. ETHZ/Scheringer (M34, 8w) to work on LRAT modelling. 1-day visits to a local wastewater (Svensk Vatten) and municipal incineration facility in Stockholm (both M12 after ATC3) as well as UFZ/Berger (after ATC6 in M24). Host a visit from Chemours/ Russell following ATC2 to discuss human exposure modelling plans (M13) and visit Chemours/Russell when work has progressed (M31).
