CETCO launches FLUORO-SORB® adsorbent for the remediation of PFAS

  • CETCO launches FLUORO-SORB® adsorbent for the remediation of PFAS

About the entity

CETCO provides high-performing products worldwide across a broad range of construction projects, including bentonite-based waterproofing for underground structures and drilling applications including foundation, slurry wall, tunneling, water well.

Amidst a deeper awareness of the health and environmental impact of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), CETCO has launched FLUORO-SORB® adsorbent, a proprietary, NSF-certified product that effectively treats multiple variants of PFAS. 

Unlike other sorbent products that are selective and unpredictable in adsorbing PFAS, FLUORO-SORB® adsorbent binds the entire spectrum of PFAS — including PFOA, PFOS, PFHxS and PFNA — efficiently and in a wide variety of removal and remediation processes. FLUORO-SORB® also controls the source of contamination and can be deployed easily as a flow through treatment media, as a passive in situ treatment (permeable reactive barrier and in-situ stabilization and solidification - ISS), or used in a CETCO® REACTIVE CORE MAT® composite geotextile mat for sediment capping.

Efficient and effective​

CETCOs proprietary product, FLUORO-SORB® adsorbent, resists competitive adsorption from other water and sediment contaminants. Because of its higher adsorption properties and higher density, it requires fewer change outs than granular activated carbon (GAC), resulting in a substantially reduced total cost of ownership.

FLUORO-SORB® adsorbent can serve as a pre- or post-treatment media in connection with other technologies including GAC or ion exchange resin (IER) water treatment trains. This compatibility and seamless integration maximizes the removal of PFAS contaminants while improving efficiency and extending the life of existing GAC systems. Additionally, when combined with in-situ treatment (ISS or PRB) of the PFAS source, FLUORO-SORB® adsorbent will significantly reduce the reliance on "pump and treat" alone for achieving hydraulic control of a contaminated site.
