Removal of Perfluoroalkyl Substances by PAC Adsorption and Anion Exchange [ Project # 4344 ]

  title={Removal of Perfluoroalkyl Substances by PAC Adsorption and Anion Exchange [ Project \# 4344 ]},
  author={Leigh-Ann Dudley and Elisa Arevalo and Detlef R. U. Knappe},
1. Assess the effectiveness of commercially available PACs with a wide range of physicalchemical characteristics for PFAS removal 2. Determine whether enhanced PFAS removal can be accomplished with superfine PAC (SPAC) as a result of faster PFAS adsorption kinetics and/or a larger PFAS adsorption capacity 3. Evaluate the effects of resin type and dose as well as background water quality on PFAS removal by anion exchange 4. Identify regeneration conditions that restore the PFAS removal capacity… 

Modeling of Perfluoroalkyl Substance Adsorption to an Ion Exchanger using PHREEQC

Poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are environmental pollutants used in many products such as outdoor clothing, food packaging, cleaning agents and fire-fighting foam. The substances have

Granular activated carbon adsorption of perfluoroalkyl acids from ground and surface water

Adsorption of perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) by granular activated carbon (GAC) was evaluated in bench‐, pilot‐, and full‐scale studies to determine effects of PFAA characteristics and background

Occurrence of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in source water and their treatment in drinking water

Data and literature reports on PFAS occurrence in drinking water and treatment methods for their removal are reviewed, with the most promising and readily applied treatment technologies being activated carbon, anion exchange resins, and high-pressure membrane systems.

Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances

Perand polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), also commonly referred to as perfluorinated chemicals or PFCs, are a group of anthropogenic chemicals with past and current uses in industrial processes and

Enhanced host–guest complexation of short chain perfluoroalkyl substances with positively charged β-cyclodextrin derivatives

Short chain perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), replacements for long chain legacy PFAS such as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), have similar toxicity, negative health effects, and exceptional

Recently Detected Drinking Water Contaminants: GenX and Other Per‐ and Polyfluoroalkyl Ether Acids

For several decades, a common processing aid in the production of fluoropolymers was the ammonium salt of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). Because PFOA is persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic, its

Ionic Fluorogels for Remediation of Per- and Polyfluorinated Alkyl Substances from Water

Ionic fluorogels are demonstrated as effective adsorbents for the removal of 21 legacy and emerging PFASs from settled water collected at the Sweeney Water Treatment Plant in Wilmington, North Carolina.
