Program 2024-25 124th Call for projects

Special call for projects – Eternel Pollutants (PFAS)

The environmental persistence and bioaccumulation of per- and polyfluoroalkylated substances (PFAS) is a concern in Quebec, Canada and worldwide. These compounds have been detected in drinking water, in soils and even in certain aquatic organisms. In addition, national biomonitoring surveys have revealed the presence of numerous PFASs in human blood.

The search for solutions to reduce the use and impact of these eternal pollutants on flora and fauna remains a major challenge, both in Quebec and worldwide.

It is in this context that the CRIBIQ is launching the Special call for projects – Eternal Pollutants (PFAS), as part of the Support Program for Research and Innovation Organizations (SPO) of the Quebec's Ministry of Economy, Innovation and Energy (MEIE), which is aimed at companies and public research institutes in Quebec (IRPQ) wishing to collaborate in developing processes for managing and eliminating PFAS-type cation exchange resins (CERs) present in municipal waste.
