WQRF Emerging Contaminant Webinar


Update: Emerging Contaminant Removal and Microbial Growth in Membrane Filtration and Activated Carbon POU Systems

Through a WQRF-funded grant, Dr. George Zhou evaluated the removal of three PFAS chemicals (PFOS, PFBS, PFHxS), manganese, uranium and Legionella by point-of-use (POU) devices.  Three unique POU reverse osmosis membranes and three unique activated carbon filters were tested in this study. Join us for a discussion on how the technologies performed.
