Hydrosil was contacted to evaluate treatment methods for contaminated landfill leachate which showed high levels of PFAS and PFOA compounds. The concentrations of the contaminates were above the Wisconsin Groundwater Quality Public Health Enforcement Standard for PFOA. Initially the leachate was treated with four different medias one of which being HS-PF. The HS-PF showed the highest removal rates ranging from 78–100% removal, as shown below. The pilot study was completed at 5 gpm.
Hydrosil’s HS-PF is designed to remove per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The media is an economical and efficient remediation process which removes both long and short chain compounds. Contact a Hydrosil representative to discuss an application today.
