Amid a deeper awareness of the health and environmental impact of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), CETCO is pleased to announce the launch of FLUORO-SORB® adsorbent, a proprietary, NSF-certified product that effectively treats multiple variants of PFAS.
Unlike other sorbent products that are selective and unpredictable in adsorbing PFAS, FLUORO-SORB adsorbent binds the entire spectrum of PFAS—including PFOA, PFOS, PFHxS and PFNA—efficiently and in a wide variety of removal and remediation processes. FLUORO-SORB also controls the source of contamination and can be deployed easily as a flow-through treatment media, as a passive in situ treatment (permeable reactive barrier and in-situ stabilization and solidification [ISS]) or used in a CETCO REACTIVE CORE MAT® composite geotextile mat for sediment capping.
FLUORO-SORB resists competitive adsorption from other water and sediment contaminants. Because of its higher adsorption properties and higher density, it requires fewer change outs than granular activated carbon (GAC), resulting in a substantially reduced total cost of ownership.
FLUORO-SORB adsorbent can serve as a pre- or post-treatment media in connection with other technologies including GAC or ion exchange resin (IER) water treatment trains. This compatibility and seamless integration maximizes the removal of PFAS contaminants while improving efficiency and extending the life of existing GAC systems. Additionally, when combined with in situ treatment (ISS or PRB) of the PFAS source, FLUORO-SORB adsorbent will significantly reduce the reliance on “pump and treat” alone for achieving hydraulic control of a contaminated site.
