Proven Results to Non-Detectable Levels
International expert in PFAS, Dr Jimmy Seow reviews the OLEOLOGY PFAS Water Treatment System and shares his expertise on PFAS removal.
Known as perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, PFAS is a man made compound and does not naturally degrade in the environment.
Also referred to as fluorochemicals, as well as the “Forever Chemical,” due to their persistency in the environment and humans, PFAS contains one or more carbon atoms whose carbon-hydrogen bonds are replaced by carbon-fluorine bonds. The carbon-fluorine bonds are the shortest and strongest chemical bonds, hence its chemical reactive stability and persistency.
PFAS has excellent heat, chemical and thermal stability; stain, water and dirt repellence and wetting; and surfactant properties. Hence, they are used in a wide variety of products and processes.
Globally PFAS can be found everywhere even in whales and polar bears in the Arctic.
Since the discovery of the harmful effect of PFAS countries are now phasing out the production however more PFAS analytes are being discovered as product IP is being released.
Human impact has been confirmed from various sources around the world and most recently released by the University of Michigan has linked PFAS with Ovarian and Testicular cancers.
PFAS has a half life between 40-90 years and bio accumulates within the environment.
Environmental impact with water and land has also greatly affected the agriculture and horticulture ecosystem. Farming of meat and vegetable crops further impacts human health as PFAS passes through the food chain.
The world is connected by its oceans, and the persistence of the PFAS precursors and analytes enables the contaminants to travel across the globe without interference.
PFAS has a half life between 40-90 years and bioaccumulates within the environment. If you wish to read more about PFAS below are articles written by world-leading experts on this issue.
There is a focus on only some contaminates however there is a remaining 6600+ contaminants and currently laboratories can only test for 35. The world is still learning.
OLEOLOGY can effectively and permanently remove all PFAS contaminants to below detectable levels in order to:
