INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND STARTUP OF AUSTRALIA'S FIRST REGENERABLE RESIN SYSTEM FOR PFAS REMOVAL
Woodard, S. | RemTEC Summit, February 26-28, 2019, Denver, Colorado

A 200-gpm regenerable ion exchange (IX) resin system was installed in spring 2018 to remove PFAS from groundwater at the Royal Australian Air Force Base Williamtown. The system includes pretreatment filtration to remove suspended solids, IX resin to remove fouling agents (including iron and natural organic matter), specialized IX resins for PFAS removal, and an in-vessel regeneration process used to strip PFAS from the IX resin. Influent concentrations to the full-scale system range from 18 to 410 g/L. More information: http://www.defence.gov.au/environment/pfas/williamtown/managementactivities.asp
