Advanced Environmental Remediation
Why Should You Care?
Recently discovered environmental contaminants are a global threat to wildlife and human health and are causing new challenges to our communities. These emerging contaminants do not biodegrade under typical environmental conditions and resist most treatment technologies making them extremely persistent in the environment. Remediation is becoming more complex requiring site specific, cost-effective and scalable treatment approaches.
Health-based advisories for two of these emerging contaminants – perfluoroctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) have been developed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and adopted by some state agencies. These perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) are made-made and are used in a variety of products including firefighting foams, and coating additives. Another emerging contaminant, 1,4-dioxane, is often found as a co-contaminant at solvent release sites such as landfills, solvent recycling facilities, vapor degreasing operations, and fire-training areas. Exposure of these emerging contaminants to humans and wildlife has been widespread and has the potential to cause adverse ecological and human health effects.
