How is it possible that 1.3 million liters of PFAS-containing fire-fighting foam is stored on a business park in Doetinchem? And why was there no intervention when the barrels started to leak? VU professor of toxicology and environmental chemistry Jacob de Boer investigates in the broadcast how polluted the soil is, and tests apples on PFAS from the adjacent garden. Watch the broadcast (De Boer can be seen from 13 min). Moreover, the program makers had an interview (in Dutch) with him. You can find the interview here.
