PFAS Data – what is available? Denmark and Sweden
This month talk initiators are Melissa from IVL/Sweden and Anne Mette from Defense minister/Denmark who has presented available database in respective countries.
Mapping the contaminated sites is the one of the first steps towards PFAS work, but many countries lack those databases. Denmark has measurements since 2012, and Anne Mette presented the open database system for polluted sites and its structures. Melissa showed corresponding ones from Sweden. Questions were raised such as “who is managing the site?” “who can edit?” “How often is the database updated” etc.
