SGS supports the monitoring of the mobility of PFAS in groundwater through high-quality analysis
SGS has cooperated with iFlux and Cyclopure to develop a new method for monitoring the mobility of PFAS in groundwater plumes. iFlux patented a passive sampling cartridge and technology, together with Cyclopure, which supplied the adsorbent needed to capture and remove PFAS from the groundwater, allowing for a unique flux measurement to be determined. SGS contributed its expertise, as an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory, in high-quality environmental measurement and analysis to determine the PFAS compounds.

As a result, these substances have been released into the environment and are now found in, for example, soil, ground- and surface water.
