@nomand Any idea how one might safely get rid of PFAS products? 🤔
At my insistence we've been phasing them out in my family, but I'm not sure if just throwing them in the trash was such a great idea.


@csepp @nomand current methods sounds rather energy intense: scientificamerican.com/article

maybe at some point bacteria or fungi could evolve or be "developed" that are able to decompose them, but then of course the question becomes what are the decomposition materials?

probably CO2 and Fluorine-whatever-the-heck-is-nearby…
