Australia’s Leading Water Treatment Technology with the Australian and International expert in PFAS, Dr Jimmy Seow reviews the OLEOLOGY treatment system and shares his expertise on PFAS removal.
Australasia’s Most Effective PFAS Removal Services
Classified as emerging contaminants, PFAS are a group of non-degradable chemicals with an unknown impact on humans and the environment. Known for their resistance to water, oil and heat, these potentially toxic chemicals have been widely used in a range of products, including firefighting foams across Australia.
Water that has been contaminated with PFAS can lead to human exposure when consumed. It can also impact the land and other foodstuffs, including meat and vegetables, further impacting human health as the PFAS passes through the food chain. With our advanced water treatment technology, OLEOLOGY can reduce contaminant levels to less than 0.005 part per billion, aiding your operation, government or community.
PFAS – a Global Concern
Known as perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, PFAS does not naturally degrade in the environment, making them a global point of concern.
In the Northern Territory, drinking water contaminated with PFAS has been linked to common firefighting chemicals, while low levels of PFAS have also been found in blood samples in America. The chemicals are known to become more concentrated in the blood and organs overtime, which has been linked to adverse health effects in laboratory tests.
Combating PFAS contamination with water treatment technologies and services is the most effective way to reduce PFAS in water supplies. Using innovative MyCelx technology, OLEOLOGY can tailor a PFAS removal solution to your needs.
