PFAS Monitoring in Water Works of Berlin, Germany

by | Articles, Environmental Analysis


FrederikZietzschmann_200This presentation, produced by Separation Science, in collaboration with Agilent, forms part of an on-demand symposium covering new methods in PFAS testing, featuring thought leaders from across the globe. This key talk titled 'PFAS Analysis: Application in the Water Works of Berlin, Germany' given by Frederik Zietzschmann  from the Laboratory of Berliner Wasserbetriebe, Germany is now available to watch. Below is an outline of the presentation:

Format: On-demand Presentation

PFAS are an abundant class of legacy and current contaminants in the catchments of many water works around the world. In Berlin, Germany, PFAS are monitored extensively due to the prospective strict regulatory measures from the European Union and German environmental authorities. With required limits of quantification in the very low ng/L range, sensitive techniques are applied and potential improvements are explored. These analytical means are complemented by research activities regarding PFAS analysis, sampling, and removal, as well as contributions to national and international standardization.

By watching this presentation you will learn that:

  • Thorough monitoring of PFAS will be required by many water works due to strict regulatory limits
  • Analytical sensitivity must be further increased to satisfy the required limits of quantification
  • Technologies for PFAS removal must be improved to comply with limit values
