Abstract

This issue of Remediation is dedicated to one of the most pressing topics in the remediation industry – per‐ and polyfluorinated alkylated substances (PFASs). The articles comprising the issue address critical topics in the rapidly advancing area of PFAS investigation, assessment, and remediation. The articles were curated and coordinated by Dora Chiang, an AECOM Vice President, and Claudia Walecka‐Hutchison, an EH&S Remediation Manager at The Dow Chemical Company. Each article was peer reviewed by at least two environmental experts specializing in the subject matter to improve the technical quality of the articles in this unique issue of Remediation.If you ask almost any remediation professional what emerging contaminant is receiving the most attention in today's remediation market, you would be surprised if the answer is something other than “Why PFASs of course.” Sessions at remediation conferences with PFAS‐related topics are consistently standing room only as attendees yearn for information on this rapidly developing topic. The remediation community has become accustomed to chemicals being identified and designated as “emerging.” However, PFASs pose more challenging issues to the remediation community than other emerging chemicals for the following reasons:The complexity and uncertain nature of the chemistry, although there are more than 3,000 PFASs,
