Battelle is developing new approaches to characterize and mitigate per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination in even the most challenging environments.
Battelle is leading the way in development of new solutions for emerging environmental problems—like PFAS. If you have a PFAS challenge to solve, we can support you every step of the way, from initial site assessment and characterization to stakeholder communication.

PFAS are commonly used in firefighting foams as well as water-repellant materials, non-stick cookware and takeout containers. There are more than 100 known PFAS compounds - PFOA and PFOS are two of the most well-known. Due to their possible impacts on human health, they are now emerging as an environmental contaminant of concern, particularly in industrial sites and on military bases. Research is urgently needed to better understand the fate and transport of PFAS compounds and how PFAS-contaminated sites can best be remediated to minimize environmental and human health concerns.
PFAS are highly persistent in the environment and biological tissue, and have been correlated with negative health impacts.
The same chemicals that improve our daily lives also can have harmful effects. Check out the four reasons why you should care.
Learn how Battelle developed a tiered “weight of evidence” approach to extrapolate toxicity for PFAS contaminants without toxicity data.
