PFAS were first invented the 1930s as a nonstick and waterproof coating. Since then, their applications have expanded to cookware, textiles, fire-fighting foam, cosmetics, industrial applications, and more. As a result, they have become ubiquitous in the environment. The risks posed by PFAS have been well documented. As a result, evolving state and federal regulations are targeting clean-up of these chemicals.
Vadose Remediation offers multiple solutions to remediating PFAS contamination. We offer adsorptive media in FluoroSorb, thermal remediation for in-situ destruction of PFAS, and FluxSorb™ IS, an injectable colloidal carbon product (CCP) for the adsorption of PFAS within a contaminated groundwater plume. More information on each of these solutions can be found below. Contact Vadose Remediation for more information on PFAS removal options or to schedule a customized presentation for your team.
CETCO's FluoroSorb media is a proven adsorptive media for PFAS compounds. With superior performance to activated carbon and lower overall cost to ion exchange resin, FluoroSorb offers a unique solution to PFAS contamination. FluoroSorb can be deployed as a water treatment media, as part of an in-situ stabilization application, in a permeable reactive barrier, or as a sediment cap.
Vadose Remediation offers thermal solutions through TerraTherm for in-situ PFAS removal. The higher temperatures in a TCH system will effectively reduce PFAS concentrations by over 99%, mainly through vaporization at the increased temperatures.
FluxSorb™ IS is an activated CCP consisting of low micron size particles, which allow for effective delivery and distribution within the subsurface. The particles demobilize and create an effective treatment zone for contact with the contaminated groundwater plume. As the water flows, contaminants are captured within activated carbon pores, where their concentrations are reduced.
