PFASs (Per and PolyFluorinated Alkyl
Substances), are a large family of highly persistent, synthetic chemicals that
accumulate in the environment and in the human body. They can be
transported in surface water or groundwater contaminating drinking water and
water used in urban and industrial processes and can provoke negative effects on the environment and the human health.
Since PFASs are "forever chemicals", the remediation of polluted sites is technically difficult and costly.
The aim of the FOUNTAIN Project is to propose an effective solution to this problem with special focus on the Surface Finishing Industry.
