PFAS team awarded research grant by ALGA

Key highlights
  • We’ve been awarded ALGA’s 2018 Research and Development grant 
  • The grant will be used to research “Improving measurement reliability of the PFAS TOP assay”
  • Our PFAS team is leading the charge in research for the treatment and removal of PFAS contaminants 

Our PFAS team has been awarded the 2018 Research and Development grant by the Australasian Land & Groundwater Association (ALGA). 

In collaboration with the National Measurement Institute (NMI), ALS and eurofins | mgt, the $45,000 grant will contribute to research on the topic of “Improving measurement reliability of the PFAS TOP assay”, which will aim to produce robust procedural guidelines and improved confidence in the TOP assay* used to test complex PFAS precursor contamination. 

Our project supports an industry research need that was recently identified in the PFAS National Environment Management Plan (NEMP). 

We’re proud of our dedicated, specialist PFAS team who are actively researching and developing innovative, practical and cost-effective technologies that can be used to remediate PFAS contamination. 

We look forward to sharing the results of our findings with the environmental community.
