PFOA and PFOS
PFOA & PFOS have been overlooked as an environmental contaminant until recently. These compounds have been widely used in firefighting foams and consumer products for decades. Similarly to PCBs, PFOA & PFOS spread easily, do not break down, and can remain in water plumes indefinitely. With new regulations requiring treatment down to the parts per trillion range, effective treatment will be a growing concern in upcoming years.
H2K Technologies has treatment solutions Specific treatment approach will vary with concentration and individual site characteristics, but removal can generally be handled by a combination of activated carbon, ionic resin, and solids filtration. While carbon is often the most cost effective option, ionic resins are selective for PFOA/PFOS and can provide better removal when other organic loading is present. Our experienced team of engineers can review sampling data, model treatment performance, recommend treatment approach and estimate the media lifespan for your project. Our expertise will help you provide a custom turnkey solution to provide effective results for the lifespan of a project.
