Bo Guo said: "PFAS have been discovered almost everywhere in the world. While toxicological research is still ongoing and very limited data is available, it's clear that these types of chemicals can cause adverse health effects, including cancer, at very, very low concentrations," "We are talking about parts per trillion levels" External link

Mark Brusseau said: "We have the long-term persistence, their presence pretty much everywhere in the environment, and the toxicological impacts from exposure. Those three things together make PFAS very critical emerging contaminants of concern," External link

Mark Brusseau said: "At many sites, particularly at military bases and industrial sites where they're using PFAS, the concentrations in the soil are very high, often much higher than they are in groundwater," "We are observing that, at many sites, the soil is a reservoir, like a source zone of PFAS, that can then have long-term potential for contaminating groundwater" External link

Bo Guo said: "It is important to continue studying how PFAS behave underground at these sites, especially in the face of a changing climate and growing competition for water resources here in the Southwest," External link

Frédéric Pitre says: “We can say that yes we’re growing trees instead of growing something else but we can also take advantage of that to produce something of increased value,” “It creates an environment for birds and insects … it increases biodiversity and cools down the area—it makes green islands instead of heat islands” External link

Frédéric Pitre says: “We are pretty convinced that wastewater can be efficiently treated [with willow trees],” “We’ve expanded our reach, we are trying to see if the willow trees can also clean up more industrial related waste contaminated water … for example looking into emerging contaminants—that’s where the research is going now” External link
