National PFAS Contamination Coalition Statement on Incineration of PFAS

The National PFAS Contamination Coalition strongly opposes the incineration of PFAS-contaminated wastes and collected PFAS products as incineration and other similar thermal treatment technologies and facilities have not been specifically permitted to treat PFAS nor have they been demonstrated to destroy PFAS, ie reducing it to carbon, fluoride salts and/or other constituents. We also object to placing collected PFAS product in landfills which can readily leak PFAS to the surrounding environment.  Instead, collected PFAS product should remain stored within each state until safe alternatives to incineration are in place and fully operational.
