PFAS Waste Management Solutions
US Ecology is committed to being a valuable resource in the development of safe and compliant disposal solutions that protect human health and the environment. Per- and Polyfluoroalky substances (PFAS) have been produced in the US since the 1940s and are used in a wide variety of products and applications. PFAS are persistent in the environment and resistant to environmental degradation. The potential bioaccumulation of PFAS is a concern and EPA considers PFAS to be emerging contaminants.
Examples of PFAS waste:
- Contaminated soils, sludges, and liquids
- Firefighting foam impacted areas and AFFF concentrate
- Filter cake and water treatment media
- Landfill leachate
- Industrial by-products from plating, finishing, manufacturing and other sectors
