PFAS & Emerging
Contaminants

Emerging contaminants are new or re-emerged chemicals of concern found in medicines or personal care, cleaning, lawn care, and agricultural products, that may cause adverse health or environmental impacts. These include per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), a group of dangerous emerging contaminants (EC) chemically and biologically persistent in the environment. Governments are enforcing more stringent limits down to parts per trillion (ppt) to manage the health risks to humans and wildlife.

 

 

Traditionally, PFAS are removed by activated carbon filtration (ACF) followed by ion exchange (IX) polishing, but these methods have shortcomings. They are ineffective at removing shorter-chain PFAS compounds, and the solid wastes generated are prohibitively expensive to dispose of. Reverse Osmosis (RO) has been moderately effective in removing PFAS, but also generates a liquid concentrate waste stream that is difficult to dispose of due to higher TDS and PFAS concentrations.

Introducing ForeverGone

ForeverGone is a complete all-in-one solution to permanently remove and destroy PFAS.


The current best available technologies for PFAS treatment merely concentrate or transfer wastes from one medium to another, necessitating further handling and transportation for ultimate disposal by landfilling or incineration.


Gradiant’s ForeverGone pairs two proven technologies, Micro-Foam Fractionation and Destruction Engine, to produce water that meets or exceeds the recently announced latest US EPA drinking water standards for PFAS. Micro-Foam Fractionation separates PFAS into a highly concentrated micro-foam optimized for removal. The Destruction Engine uses electro-oxidation to permanently eliminate the full range of PFAS chemicals from the micro-foamate. The integrated solution achieves comprehensive PFAS removal at the lowest total cost, setting new standards for simplicity, efficiency, and sustainability.

Micro-Foam Fractionation

With our separation and concentration technology, we inject billions of microbubbles into contaminated water to effectively separate and concentrate PFAS for immediate destruction. Rigorous technology evaluations confirm that our system meets stringent EPA standards by completely removing PFAS compounds.

 

  • Meet stringent regulatory limits with industry leading PFAS removal for a broad range of contaminated waters
  • Achieve the lowest cost PFAS removal from the industry’s most effective technology
  • ZERO waste media generated or environmental impact — no harsh chemicals, or expensive consumables, and extremely low energy requirements

Destruction Engine

Gradiant’s destruction technology eliminates the concentrated micro-foamate via electro-oxidation, using proprietary electrodes. This powerful technology enables the permanent destruction of all PFAS compounds, forever, ensuring a safe, reliable water supply.

 

  • Complete destruction of the full range of PFAS compounds
  • Leaves no trace with just harmless by-products
  • In-line destruction eliminates cost and complexity of shipping PFAS waste off-site for treatment

ForeverGone’s modular design scales easily and adapts to a robust range of feed and product water conditions. The all-in-one PFAS removal and destruction solution is available as standalone containers that can be promptly shipped, installed, and commissioned at customer sites.

Gradiant is now working with customer partners to deploy ForeverGone to their sites, offering a unique opportunity to eliminate PFAS efficiently and sustainably. Forever.
