  • The Swedish Air Force will replace its PFAS fire fighting foam it uses at its bases with a more environmentally friendly one.

  • PFAS are man-made chemicals that can contaminate water supplies and don't easily biodegrade.

  • Just this month, a court in Blekinge county said residents whose drinking water was contaminated by the chemicals for years have the right to compensation.
