Pumps United PFAS treatment system

Thursday, 04 April, 2019 | Supplied by: Pumps United



Pumps United has engineered a treatment process that is designed to remediate per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) contamination and deliver clean water that is reported to exceed human drinking standards by approximately 500 times.

The treatment system is claimed to remove PFAS and precursors to levels of PFOS < 0.0002 ug/L and perfluorooctanoic acid < 19 ug/L, which exceed existing Australian benchmarks. Once removed, PFAS are chemically bonded to dry filters and media, then incinerated, minimising transport and storage risks and halting the progression of PFAS permeation.

The solid waste stream produced from the method is claimed to be 80 times less than current conventional PFAS treatments. The system operates from a compact footprint of two shipping containers, relative to conventional systems that currently require up to a thousand square metres to treat similar contaminant volumes.

Pumps United is also trialling ‘soil washing’ as efforts in site remediation accelerate, and is undergoing research and development in underground ‘water glass’ barriers to prevent migration of contaminated liquid into already treated areas — building containment zones that allow for holistic site remediation.
