FLUORO-SORB® Adsorbent is a proprietary, NSF-certified product designed to globally support per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASPFAS stands for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. These are a group of synthetic chemicals that have been widely used in...) remediation.
FLUORO-SORB® Adsorbent binds across the spectrum of PFAS, including PFOA, PFOS, PFHxS, and PFNA, unlike other sorbent products that are selective and unpredictable in adsorbing PFAS. Additionally, FLUORO-SORB® Adsorbent is less impacted by co-contaminants in the waste stream, such as gasoline- and diesel-range hydrocarbons, chlorinated solventsChlorinated solvents are a group of organic compounds that contain chlorine and are commonly used in various industrial processes, such..., natural organic matter (NOM), salinity, and pH, in comparison to other PFAS adsorbents. As FLUORO-SORB® Adsorbent platelets begin to adsorb PFAS, the platelets expand on a nanometer scale, which allows for greater sorption kinetics and capacity. This unique capability makes FLUORO-SORB® Adsorbent significantly more adsorptive than other commercially available products marketed for PFAS.
AST has an exclusive agreement with CETCO to provide the proprietary FLUORO-SORB® technology for in situ injection applications domestically and internationally to immobilize PFAS. Since FLUORO-SORB® Adsorbent is a solid material, it is applied through direct injection as a slurry suspension. AST’s decades of experience successfully injecting slurries into overburden, transition zones, and fractured bedrock settings makes this partnership a natural and complementary fit.
