BENCH-SCALE STUDY TO EVALUATE THE USE OF ADSORPTIVE MEDIA IN A PERMEABLE BARRIER TO REMOVE PFAS FROM LANDFILL GROUNDWATER
Barajas, F. | RemTEC Summit, February 26-28, 2019, Denver, Colorado. Poster, 2019

In this study, bench-scale laboratory experiments were set up to demonstrate the effectiveness of materials such as natural soil, wood shavings, and biochar used in a permeable barrier for removing PFAS from groundwater, as well as to optimize the composition of the media used. The experimental approach was conducted in two separate phases that included batch and flow-through experiments. The results will provide insights on the use of certain materials to improve the removal of PFAS when using permeable barriers, how those barriers can be designed based on the media recipe, and information about the adsorptive capacities of such media. https://www.remtecsummit.com/ext/resources/Static-Pages/presentations/Francisco-Barajas.pdf
