LIFE CAPTURE aims to examine the characteristics and behaviour of PFAS contaminants, with the intention of finding innovative remediation solutions for PFAS-contaminated soil and groundwater. The overarching objective is to develop sustainable management methods for dealing with PFAS contamination in soil and groundwater. The project is overseen by eight European partners (ABO, Greensoil Group, iFlux, Universita Milano Bicocca, Politecnico di Milano, SGS, Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet and Viacqua), who are working closely together to guarantee its success.

LIFE CAPTURE project organises a scientific session in the frame of Remtech Europe entitled  “Characterisation and risk assessment of PFAS contaminated sites for an efficient remediation design.”
This session will bring together researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to discuss the latest advances in the field of PFAS contamination, including characterisation and risk assessment of contaminated sites, and the development of efficient remediation strategies. The session will include presentations from the European project LIFE CAPTURE, as well as presentations selected from submitted abstracts.

The session will be held on Wednesday 20th September 2023 from 14:30 to 19:00 in presence in Ferrara during Remtech Europe 2023
