UNIVERSITY GRANTED FUNDING FOR PFAS RESEARCH PROGRAM

The University of Newcastle has received $1.5-million to help address PFAS contamination.

It’s part of a national research program to remediate soil and groundwater contaminated by domestic and defence uses of the chemicals, something that’s been causing major heartache for residents near RAAF Base Williamtown.

The uni’s study will focus on immobilising, absorbing and then burning off contaminated biosolids at high temperatures.
