Testbed PFAS seeks testers

Skip to newslisting

There are currently no sustainable methods for processing soil or water, contaminated with PFAS. There is a great need for objective and independent identification and evaluation of various decontamination methods. Identification and evaluation of substitutes for firefighting foams containing PFAS is also necessary, in order to facilitate efficient and sustainable firefighting of complex fires.

For this reason, in cooperation with the Swedish defence authorities, RISE will set up a testbed for identifying, verifying and validating methods for processing contaminated soil and other areas, as well as for testing and evaluating substitutes and substitute methods for future PFAS-free firefighting. The testbed is to contribute to the societal need for realistic and cost-efficient decontamination methods to be used on PFAS-contaminated soil and water. The results from the test bed are to be used as a basis for future procurement of services and methods.

We are now looking for companies, innovators, researchers and other actors as testers within the field of decontamination methods as well as producers of alternative solutions within the field of substitutes, methods and firefighting equipment. Selection and prioritization of testers will be made by the testbed steering group.

To report your interest, please e-mail your contact information and a description of the method/solution for decontamination or firefighting - the 10th of January 2020 at the latest - to the following address: Show e-mail address.

Should you have any questions, please contact Tove Mallin, RISE, e-mail: Show e-mail address., Telephone number: +46 (0)10-516 5567
