Featured Article: The Problem with PFAS Waste Incineration 

This article written by Maureen Dooley, VP – Industrial Sector of REGENESIS and published in Environmental Science & Engineering discusses the problem with PFAS waste incineration. The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) released a memo placing a moratorium on the incineration of materials containing PFAS. No commercially available disposal or incineration methods have proven effective at preventing the ‘forever chemicals’ from being recycled back into the environment. The use of the colloidal activated carbon (CAC) technology to contain PFAS in place avoids the creation and disposal of wastes whose ultimate fate cannot be assured. CAC has been successfully applied at PFAS-contaminated sites worldwide. The patented CAC technology from REGENESIS filters PFAS from groundwater to remove human and environmental exposure risks.

Article: PFAS Are Everywhere. Now What?

This article written by Steve Barnes of REGENESIS Remediation Services (RRS) and published in Water & Wastes Digest discusses what can be done about PFAS contamination now that it is likely to remain ubiquitous. The immense scope of the PFAS problem demands remedies for high-priority contaminated sites that are effective, economically viable, and environmentally sustainable. Colloidal activated carbon (CAC) treatments have demonstrated years of effectiveness in the field, including the world’s first in situ PFAS treatment achieving 100% PFAS removal (i.e., from several thousand parts per trillion to non-detect levels) for more than six years thus far.

Case Study: Cleanup Goals Met Post PetroFix Application 

This case study reviews a former gasoline station located in the Florida Panhandle, where an underground storage tank (UST) release site is now poised for closure. After reviewing the available remedial options, Advanced Environmental Technologies, LLC (AET), a leading environmental consulting and engineering firm, determined PetroFix® Remediation Fluid would provide the most economical and efficient means to reduce concentrations below the groundwater cleanup target levels and achieve site closure.

Employee Spotlight: Will Clogan, RRS East Region Project Manager

Ask Will Clogan, REGENESIS Remediation Services (RRS) East Region Project Manager II, what he values most in his work and you will likely get a quick response about the importance of teamwork. That’s because there are numerous facets of his work where he routinely relies on other RRS staff to assist in making sure projects have successful outcomes. With such a large geographical territory and the responsibility of numerous projects at a given time, it is typical for Clogan to encounter a range of challenges. One, in particular, involved a site that called for installing a PRB in weathered bedrock with a large vertical interval. Naturally, teamwork played a key role in the outcome. He shares, “This particular site posed many challenges with the installation of wells and formation acceptance. Every section of the PRB threw a new challenge. RRS field staff, REGENESIS technical support, and our client collaborated daily to overcome the challenges. Eventually, the collective support and creativity allowed the team to overcome the challenges and install the PRB.”

Article: If PFAS are Everywhere, What is the Point of Remediation? 

This article written by Chad Northington of REGENESIS and published in Florida Specifier discusses what can be done about PFAS contamination now that it is likely to remain ubiquitous. With PFAS confirmed to be fully entrained in the hydrologic cycle, some might question how it is possible to clean up the “forever chemicals.” After all, if PFAS are everywhere, what is the point of remediation? Remediation of PFAS source zones is clearly needed to prevent further PFAS exposure. The immense scale of the PFAS problem demands remedial solutions be economically and environmentally sustainable.

Information About Our Fall Webinar Series 

REGENESIS invites you to attend the Fall Webinar Series. Throughout the fall, we will be featuring webinar events with key environmental thought leaders. Topics will cover a numerical approach developed by Langan to ensure air data quality control, a PFAS State of the Union, PFAS mitigation and managing liabilities, and managing vapor intrusion liability. Each webinar will provide an opportunity for questions and answers. Certificates of completion are available on request. Sign up for the upcoming webinars today!
