Our technologies

In order to evaluate and identify the mechanisms of action and the lifecycle of this class of persistent contaminants, SCENARIOS will use a crosstoxicological approach that includes the study of human and environmental safety by using molecular systems biology, toxicogenomics and phenotypic screening, supported by bioinformatics and cheminformatics.

In order to develop, use and demonstrate such an integrated set of solutions, the following specific objectives have been identified.

Smart detection of PFAS

Implementing a fast, low-cost and accurate determination of PFAS to allow inexpensive widescale measurement and (bio)monitoring of PFAS congeners in any environmental and biological sample.

Integrated Approaches to Testing and Assessment (IATA) and Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA) for PFAS

Expanding the ERA framework of non-regulated PFAS and congener mixtures on a long-term scale, implementing a specific class of IATA for PFAS.

Innovation for PFAS remediation.

Development and implementation of an integrated engineering and biological remediation strategy for cleaning PFAS-contaminated environmental compartments, so as to eventually improve their potential ecosystem service (e.g., soil biodiversity for soil fertility).
