The contamination of drinking water with industry fluorinated residues has been an urgent concern in North America for decades. Chemical manufacturers in the United States have historical meant that large, point-source pollution has been a regional issue. But in the last 10 years it has become glaringly apparent that the “forever chemicals” and related species are truly a global issue. China is taking steps to address PFAS contamination and human exposure by implementing new regulations on these chemicals in drinking water. This presentation will discuss the most recent technology and solutions that will help scientists and laboratories detect and quantify PFAS in China and around the world.
