We have to live with PFAS

As the unrivaled authority in PFAS treatment and removal, the water treatment experts at Calgon Carbon have the solution for PFAS.

A One-Two Punch to Fight Back Against PFAS

For more than a decade, the PFAS experts at Calgon Carbon have proven that our FILTRASORB® 400 Granular Activated Carbon product removes PFAS compounds to non-detectable levels. 

But what happens with the spent activated carbon laden with these so-called forever chemicals? 

Our PFAS experts sought to answer this question and prove that our PFAS removal technology offers a safe and effective solution to remove these compounds from the spent activated carbon. 

PFAS Removal and Destruction > 99.99%

In a peer-reviewed article recently published in the highly respected Remediation-The Journal of Environmental Cleanup Costs, Technologies, & Techniques, Calgon Carbon detailed our study at a full-scale manufacturing site on the removal of PFAS from spent activated carbon through a process called reactivation. 

This groundbreaking research shows that not only can PFAS be removed from the environment using granular activated carbon, but reactivation can effectively and completely remove those same compounds from the spent carbon and destroy to >99.99%.

This site is intended to educate and inform water treatment specialists, environmental managers and others who are focused on PFAS mitigation and destruction strategies that there now is a way to live without PFAS.
