Integrated, Science-Enabling Solutions

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been widely used in the United States in a variety of applications, and there are concerns about widespread contamination, environmental risks and human health implications. Battelle’s unmatched technical expertise, capabilities and facilities provide cost-effective solutions to address this challenge.

PFAS, PFOA, PFOS Assessment, Mitigation, Remediation and Restoration

Battelle has an accredited lab specific for PFAS

Accredited PFAS Lab

We apply rigorous quality controls to accurately measure even trace levels of PFAS in a variety of matrices including sediments, soils, water, leachate, biological tissues and drinking water. We are proud to say our laboratory in Norwell, Massachusetts, is one of only a few to have NELAP and DoD ELAP accreditation.

Battelle's credibility is based on independence and objectivity

PFAS vs. Past Contaminants

PFAS are significantly different than other environmental contaminants that have been dealt with in the past. Why? The strong carbon-fluorine (C-F) bond is what makes these compounds so useful in applications such as non-stick coatings and firefighting foams. But it also is what makes them difficult to remediate in the environment.
