PFAS Removal from the Water Management Specialists

As a result of our success with the research and implementation of PFAS removal under the Membrane Australia brand, our team created a new division dedicated to continual PFAS development called PFAS Environmental Groundwater Remediation.

Just like Membrane Systems, the company is 100% Australian owned and operated by a team of dedicated experts. We strive to provide reliable and economical remediation solutions to improve the health of Australians and reduce the dangerous impact PFAS has on our environment.

The PFAS Environmental Groundwater Remediation team use Australia Certified equipment, instruments and materials to construct our PFAS removal plants to ensure they’re high-quality, purpose-built and designed for sustainable operation. These systems are available in varying capacities to suit flows ranging from 100kl up to 2ML a day. As portable models, they can be utilised across numerous locations—including the remote locations, with operational support and servicing available whenever necessary.

What is PFAS and Why Does It Pose Such a Hazard?

Why Is PFAS removal so important? Well, PFAS stands for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, which is a group of chemicals used in many household products across Australia including non-stick cookware, food packaging, fire retardants and stain-resistant carpets. Effectively, its purpose is to create a non-absorbent barrier to enhance the performance of these items.  

The issue is that PFAS compounds are highly soluble in water, and don’t break down. This means they can flow large distances, contaminating ecosystems and moving through food chains which results in ingestion by animals and humans.

While varied water treatment technologies and processes have been utilised in attempt to remediate the issue, some efforts have resulted in the creation of a contaminated biproduct that can be equally as harmful for the environment. However, Membrane Systems Australia is proud to offer a complete green solution through patented technology and partnership with our devoted research team.
