As scientists and innovation advisors, we weigh consumer perceptions and fears about health effects of emerging contaminants, not only with the science and actual risk but also with our concerns as parents. This was the case with earlier work on perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs).
It’s challenging to destroy PFAS compounds using currently available technology options. We work with organizations to help them adjust operations to respond. When our client was considering funding the development and commercialization of an early-stage PFAS-destruction process, we helped them make the right investment decisions.
There’s growing concern that some chemicals in fast-moving consumer goods may have negative environmental and health impacts. Learn how we help clients identify and reduce or eliminate potentially harmful substances in their products, supply chains, and operations.
We are part of RTI International’s team of environmental engineers and chemists who are working to solve the public health threat related to PFAS. Learn more about our work in this area.
