Environmental Business Journal recognizes REGENESIS for In Situ PFAS Remediation
Technology Merit Award awarded for remediation of PFAS with PlumeStop Colloidal Activated Carbon.
REGENESIS has been recognized by the Environmental Business Journal (EBJ) with a Technology Merit Award for PFAS Remediation, highlighting the company’s success with its product PlumeStop® Liquid Activated Carbon™ for the in situ treatment of PFAS. The award was presented in a virtual award ceremony held on the 11th February, free to the entire US environmental industry community, honoring award-winning organizations and projects for their outstanding business performance in 2020.
In 2020, Regenesis treated seven PFAS sites while adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic and developing protocols to ensure safe work practices. PlumeStop® Liquid Activated Carbon™ has been widely accepted and successfully used for in situ treatment of PFAS-contaminated groundwater to eliminate exposure risk to downgradient receptors. PlumeStop has been applied or is in the planning phase on 114 project sites worldwide, including industrial properties, Department of Defense facilities, airports, and Superfund sites.

How in situ PFAS remediation works
Treatment involves injecting and coating subsurface soil grains with 1 to 2 micron-sized carbon particles, which chemically sorb PFAS compounds and other organic contaminants from the groundwater as it naturally flows through a treatment zone. This treatment process transforms the underlying geology into a groundwater purifying filter, preventing the PFAS from migrating further. PlumeStop treatments for PFAS are designed to last for decades, corroborated through independent, peer-reviewed, third-party studies.
PlumeStop PFAS treatments have proven successful, with the target PFAS compounds reduced and maintained below their regulatory cleanup levels on all of the applications completed to date. Compared to ex-situ PFAS treatment approaches (i.e. pump and treat), PlumeStop in situ treatments do not generate new waste streams and have demonstrated substantial project life-cycle cost reductions.
