Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF)

DoD’s R&D to Identify Cleanup Technologies

Beyond the research and development efforts to find a fluorine-free alternative to AFFF, DoD recognizes that historical use of AFFF may have already impacted the environment on or around military facilities.

To address existing impacts, DoD is supporting and funding more than 85 SERDP and ESTCP projects addressing treatment technologies to cleanup PFOS and PFOA, and more than 20 SERDP and ESTCP projects addressing sampling, analysis, and monitoring of PFAS. More information on these efforts can be found on our Cleanup Technologies page.
