Abstract:

The focus of this project was to help develop better understanding of PFAS fate associated with lower temperature below 600 C thermal treatment approaches. This included an effort to assess the potential benefit of CaOH2 amendments for lowering PFAS decomposition temperatures and off-gassing of volatile organic fluorine VOF species. A variety of thermal decomposition products were examined, including fluroride mineralized from the PFAS, sulfur oxyanions, and VOF species that evolved.
