PFAS remediation research receives millions in federal funding

Published 03 October 2018

The Federal Government has announced new funding for research into PFAS treatment and remediation, as contamination continues to plague communities across the country.

The PFAS Remediation Research Program is a new initiative administered by the Australian Research Council, which aims to encourage the development of technologies to treat PFAS-contaminated environments, including groundwater, waterways and marine systems.

It has so far awarded $8.2 million to nine research projects, including $1.1 million to researchers from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) to develop technology capable of treating large quantities of PFAS-contaminated water in a cost-effective way.
