PFASology is a science podcast covering the different disciplines of PFAS research. It is created by the 15 early-stage researchers (ESRs) within PERFORCE3. Over the course of the series, the ESRs will discuss the challenges and solutions associated with the global occurrence of PFAS.
Episode 7: PFAS in the air
In the city of Dordrecht, the Netherlands, PFAS emissions connected to fluoropolymers (like Teflon™) production occurred for decades, potentially exposing the local population. PFOA and GenX have been found in the water and soil and the government is investigating the possible effects of these chemicals on the population. In this episode, Joost Dalmijn talks about how he can measure PFAS in the air around fluoropolymer production plants.
