In the April 16, 2024 Federal Register (Fed Reg_PFAS Destruction_EPA Guidance_2024-04-16), for public review and comment the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the availability of updated Guidance for PFAS destruction and disposal.  EPA is requesting public comments by October 15, 2024.  Below is text copied from the enclosed Federal Register notice:

The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020…..”directs the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to publish interim guidance on the destruction and disposal of perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and materials containing PFAS and to update the guidance at least every three years, as appropriate. The EPA is releasing an update to the December 20, 2020, interim guidance for public comment. The updated guidance builds on information pertaining to technologies that may be feasible and appropriate for the destruction or disposal of PFAS and PFAS-containing materials. The 2024 interim guidance also identifies key data gaps and uncertainties that must be resolved before the EPA can issue more definitive recommendations about PFAS destruction and disposal technologies.”
