dc.description.abstractPer- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are emerging environmental contaminants that have received significant recent attention due to their relatively common occurrence in the environment, recalcitrance in treatment systems and potential adverse human health impacts. While there are currently no maximum contaminant levels established by the United States Environmental Protection Agency for PFAS chemicals, social awareness has motivated the Department of Defense, manufacturing companies, and water providers to address the presence of these contaminants in drinking water supplies by using advanced treatment techniques. Currently, the complexity and costs associated with treating PFAS are barriers for widespread implementation of a remedial practice. Consequently, the primary goals of this study were to evaluate the performance of a novel adsorptive media compared to existing PFAS treatment technologies and develop a decision support tool to aid in PFAS treatment selection based on performance and cost.
