Treatment Technologies for PFAS in Industrial Water Perfluoalkyl chemicals are organic chemicals whose hydrogen atoms have been replaced by fluorine. Polyfluoroalkyls have had many of the hydrogens replaced by fluorine. More than 4,000 perfluorinated and polyfluorinated substances (PFAS) have been produced since they were developed in the 1940s. More than 1,000 are listed in the […]Continue Reading
