Project Summary

ORIN conducted a pilot test to treat soil contaminated with PFAS using BAM X, a pyrolized cellulosic material. BAM X was applied directly to 30 cubic yards of contaminated soils and thoroughly mixed with an excavator. Samples were collected immediately after soil mixing, one year post soil mix, and three years post soil mix.

Project Results

Following the application of BAM X, totals concentrations decrease by 86% with no detections for PFBS, PFOA, or PFNA. A slight increase is observed in PFOS concentrations, whereas PFHxS and PFBS continued to decline year over year. Overall Total PFAS is 79% lower than initial concentrations.
