    Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a large family of man-made, globally-distributed chemicals. They include perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS). PFAS have been widely used in consumer products such as non-stick cookware, carpets and carpet treatment products, food packaging, aqueous firefighting foams, and in the aerospace, automotive, construction, and e ...

    Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been detected in the effluent of municipal. industrial, and military wastewater treatment plants. In addition, a recent study found PFAS in the effluent of on-site septic systems, which serve about 25% of the US population. The predominant compounds found in wastewater effluent have been perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate ( ...

    Since ancient times, people have used pipes to transport water from source to point of use. The pipes have been made of many materials, including stone, concrete, wood, metal (lead, iron, copper) and, most recently, plastic. Plastic pipes made of rigid polyvinyl chloride (PVC) are now widely used to carry drinking water and waste water in homes and other buildings, and sometimes outside of buildi ...

    There are more than 250 million vehicles in the United States that transport people and goods. Primarily powered by internal combustion engines, they emit 1.8 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. A typical passenger vehicle emits 4.7 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. The many older vehicles still in use are the major emitters, although newer, more fuel efficient vehicles still pro ...

    Recently it has been found that metal alloy tubes used in industrial processes that operate at high temperatures can degrade and emit toxic metals. As a case in point, ethylene (C2H4) is widely used in the chemical industry as a feedstock in the production of industrial chemicals and consumer goods—e.g., plastics, antifreeze, solvents, and detergents. Ethylene is produced in furnaces by &ld ...
