TECHNICAL SOLUTION FOR REMOVAL OF PFAS IN WATER
Buhl, J. | RemTEC Summit, February 26-28, 2019, Denver, Colorado. 20 slides, 2019

Groundwater investigations in Nuremberg, Germany, detected PFAS in groundwater downgradient of an airport site. A fire-fighting training area located near the airport was identified as the PFAS source in both the soil and groundwater. The maximum level of PFAS in the groundwater measured about 777 µg/L. Several techniques potentially suitable for treating PFAS in water were tested in the lab, including the PerfluorAd technology, which removed >90% of PFAS. Results from field trials undertaken in November 2014 led to the installation of a full-scale system in September 2015. Data from September through December 2015 showed a reduction of PFAS compounds of 86.7-98.09%. Remaining PFAS compounds were then removed with an activated carbon polish. https://www.remtecsummit.com/ext/resources/Static-Pages/presentations/Jurgen-Buhl.pdf
