The Environmental Group (EGL) is undertaking a commercial trial with Reclaim Waste at its licensed facility.

The announcement follows a successful polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) separation and concentration trial with Victoria University at a pilot plant.

PFAS is a group of man-made chemicals found in stain-repellent fabrics, polishes, waxes, paints and cleaning products, which don’t break down and can accumulate over time. Studies have suggested exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects.

The company says its separation and concentration technology is a viable solution for treating PFAS-contaminated groundwater, surface water and wastewater in the current trial.

The company says trials with the university have enabled it to finalise the inputs into the treatment system to successfully separate PFAS from the liquid waste stream. This technology was developed as a direct result of the research partnership between the two institutions over the past two years.

The results exceeded the company’s expectations, with samples removing between 99.4 per cent and 100 per cent of regulated PFAS in the treatment process.

EGL says it aims to have a trial plant capable of treating 50,000 litres per day mobilised to Reclaim Waste in the coming weeks for the trial to commence, following an EPA licence being granted.

If the separation process is deemed successful at removing regulated PFAS below the required levels, the company will use its own in-house design, drafting and engineering services to fabricate its first commercial plant.

EGL says research and development will continue into the treatment of PFAS contaminated soils, with trials currently underway with Victoria University.

The Environmental Group closed up 1.01 per cent at 10 cents on August 27.
