PFAS Resource Center


Welcome to Draper Aden’s per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) Resource Center. On this page, you’ll find links to everything on our website that relates to the research and remediation strategies of PFOA, PFOS, and other related chemicals.

Introduction to PFAS


PFAS is an acronym for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. They are anthropogenic chemical compounds used in myriad manufacturing processes and are commonly found in consumer and industrial goods such as anti-stick coatings, water repellents, and fire suppressants. PFAS are sometimes referred to as “forever chemicals,” which render this family of compounds highly useful in everyday products but also makes them persistent in the environment when released.


Whether you’re a manufacturer, water or wastewater treatment plant operator, solid waste manager, or site developer, PFAS will increasingly impact your regulatory compliance and therefore your bottom line. It’s difficult to accurately sample and measure above background concentrations because these compounds are present in everyday products and packaging.


At Draper Aden Associates, we can accurately assess the nature and extent of contamination and recommend the most effective and economically feasible treatment solution. Based on our assessment, we can recommend removal of compounds, design and implement treatment, assist with regulatory tasks (to maintain compliance following safe drinking water standards), and provide construction administration and operations assistance for the treatment system.
