PFAS Remediation - What are PFAS Chemicals and how are they treated?

PFAS CHEMICALS

Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals that include the long-chain fluorinated compounds PFOA and PFOS. GenX is a short-chain replacement compound. PFAS chemicals are utilized in industrial applications and consumer products. They are widely used to make products more stain-resistant, waterproof, and nonstick.

HOW ARE WE EXPOSED TO PFAS?

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are manmade chemicals persistent in the following: 

TREATMENT OF PFAS IN GROUNDWATER

A sophisticated water treatment system is needed to treat and discharge any water from construction sites where PFAS groundwater contamination is present. The complexity of the chemistry demands a complex solution. Carbon adsorption systems are a popular choice when treating PFAS contamination in stormwater and groundwater but may not always be the most cost-effective solution.
