Groundwater Remediation

Activated carbon removes impurities in contaminated groundwater remediation and landfill treatment projects.

Our activated carbon products are used in contaminated groundwater remediation projects and to treat leachate from landfills, typically as a polishing step in the final treatment process to remove:

  • Dissolved organic compounds
  • Non-biodegradable, or poorly biodegradable, compounds

If wastewater is properly treated upstream, granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration is a reliable and cost-effective purification technology for waste streams that frequently contain complex mixtures of chemical compounds. After a certain service time, spent GAC is usually replaced with thermally reactivated, or new, GAC. We supply a number of activated carbon grades to meet specific adsorption, mechanical strength, pressure drop and backwash rate requirements.
