EPA P3 Video Presentation
This poster describes the problem statement, provides information on the proposed treatment approach, details the environmental and socio-economic benefits, and gives the initial results and findings as well as summarizes anticipated results and findings. Preliminary results show the sorption behavior of PFOS and PFOA in several different soil types and the ultrasonic effectiveness of high frequency ultrasound at different power levels. Future results hope to show the effect of different clay types on PFAS sorption and demonstrate the feasibility of degrading PFOS and PFOA within solids using ultrasound.
