Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals that includes PFOA, PFOS, and many other chemicals. PFAS is used in a variety of industries around the globe and are a growing environmental concern. Hydrosil has worked with several clients around the U.S. on this emerging contaminant. This particulate client working with an air force base was required by state to meet a discharge limit of 70 ppt. The client was currently at a concentration of 250 ppb and did not know how to reduce the concentration using an economical method.
Hydrosil suggested the HS-PF which resulted in approximately 90% removal of the PFAS. Hydrosil then suggested running the system through a HS-ACC bed for a polish. The client was satisfied with the cost of the project and met the enforced state regulations on PFAS. The HS-PF is an economical solution which does the heavy lifting. HS-PF followed by an activated carbon or resin makes an efficient and cost effective remediation system.
