Fluoranthene Removal from Water
Fluoranthene is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) and a member of the fluorine-substituted polycyclic aromatic compounds. It is a colourless solid that forms naturally from the incomplete combustion of organic matter.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and various other research studies have identified fluoranthene as a hazardous substance with potential carcinogenic properties. It is a primary concern due to its persistence in the environment and the potential risks it poses to aquatic life and human health.
As a result, effective methods for fluoranthene removal from water are essential to safeguard ecosystems and drinking water supplies.
This article explains why it’s important to remove fluoranthene from water and looks at different techniques being used. We will also introduce the Nyex Rosalox system as probably the most efficient and environmentally-friendly fluoranthene removal options.
