Parsons And Battelle Deliver Industry-Leading PFAS Investigation Capabilities
CENTREVILLE, Va. (February 17, 2021) – Parsons Corporation (NYSE: PSN) announced today that the company has entered into a collaborative agreement with Battelle Memorial Institute (Battelle) to combine Parsons’ unique per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) investigation approach and tools with Battelle’s patented PFAS analytical and site investigation tools and technologies. The combined capabilities will deliver a unique and highly advanced approach to help clients quickly, efficiently, and cost effectively investigate potential PFAS impacts and understand PFAS liabilities.
PFAS is one of today’s most significant environmental issues, and is being addressed around the world at aviation, industrial, manufacturing, and wastewater treatment facilities. The bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) allocates $10 billion in new funding to help communities investigate and mitigate PFAS and similar emerging contaminants in water and wastewater systems.
“We recognize there is no one-size-fits-all approach to PFAS investigation, and our approach is complementary with Battelle’s investigation technologies to produce extremely high quality data quickly and cost-efficiently,” said Joe Cudney, senior vice president, energy and environment, for Parsons. “Our combined capabilities will provide a powerful PFAS investigation market discriminator, mitigating risks and liabilities through innovation, insight, and advocacy.”
Parsons’ investigation approach utilizes rapid data production, real-time data interpretation, and three- dimensional model updates to actualize field-based decision making and bring more value to the investigation dataset. Battelle’s investigation technologies include source tracking for PFAS, rapid tests to determine PFAS presence, fate and transport modeling specifically designed for PFAS, passive PFAS sampling devices, and an optimized total oxidizable precursor assay.
