Typical time/temperature/turbulence conditions in WTE facilities appear to have the capacity to achieve up to 99% destruction of PFAS. On the other hand, insufficient time/temperature/turbulence may result in products of incomplete combustion (PIC), which may further concentrate PFAS compounds.
Can technologies such as incineration and combustion safely destroy PFAS compounds?
A new report developed by SWANA's Applied Research Foundation addresses PFAS fate and transport in waste-to-energy facilities.
This report is available free to ARF Waste Conversion and Energy Recovery (WCER) Group subscribers. The report will be available for purchase to SWANA members and the general public in June, 2022.Read the Executive Summary
