Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
First time I read about PFAS was a contamination near Antwerp and the refusal by 3M to accept responsibility for damages and cleanup.

Surreally serious: PFAS paralysis follows astonishing scandal

The PFAS scandal surrounding the 3M factory in Antwerp has continued to unfold, teetering ever closer to the realms of absurdity. While Belgians are no strangers to surrealism, the scandal is as serious as it is ridiculous. As the plot progresses, its dramatic turns could make a worthy sequel to Mark Ruffalo's Dark Waters - Donkere Waters anyone?

The massive pollution and releases of PFOS - one of the most well-known forever chemicals belonging to the PFAS chemical family - and dodgy deals to hush it up have dominated news channels in Belgium for months now.
