pfas treatment

Elevated concentrations of Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are increasingly detected in waste streams, raising concerns regarding their potential adverse impacts on human health and the environment. These compounds exhibit remarkable stability and resistance to biodegradation, rendering their removal and degradation particularly challenging in water treatment processes.

The combination of these properties makes that these compounds are of concern in water treatment, as removal (for example by adsorption) and degradation are both challenging. We will develop a scheme with novel adsorbent materials implemented in high-throughput filters, including regeneration of the filter before breakthrough, and a thermal reductive step to mineralize the PFASconcentrated regenerate solution.
