Removing PFAS from wastewater

The project

Iv specialises in developing innovative solutions for water treatment and storage and promoting circularity. The need for clean and sufficient (drinking) water is constantly on the increase. Iv is participating in a research project with a waste processor to investigate how PFAS can be effectively removed from wastewater before it is discharged into surface water.

The challenge

The increasing demand for clean and sufficient (drinking) water, combined with the growing problem of contaminated water, poses challenges for water treatment and circular solutions. A specific issue is the presence of PFAS in surface water, a complex group of chemicals that are difficult to treat or remove.

This research project aligns with Iv’s ambition to promote circular water solutions, from ensuring wastewater quality to promoting water reuse in industry. The research evaluates various treatment technologies, including ozone and separation technologies, to remove PFAS. The aim is to gain insight into the sources of PFAS contamination and develop strategies to manage the chain as early as possible and ensure the quality of water streams.

The impact

By developing effective treatment methods, the amount of harmful PFAS in wastewater can be reduced before it is discharged into surface water, thus contributing to maintaining water quality and minimising environmental impact. The research is helping the industrial sector to meet stricter regulations and reduce contamination, strengthen the water cycle, and promote sustainable water management.
