CSIRO Research Article: Sorptive remediation of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) using mixed mineral and graphene/carbon-based materials
Dr Supriya Lath
As the degradation of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and related per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFASs)
is energy-intensive, there is a need to develop in-situ remediation strategies to manage PFAS-contamination. The sorption of
PFOA by graphene oxide (GO), an iron-oxide-modified reduced-GO composite (FeG) and an activated-carbon(C)/clay/
alumina-based adsorbent, RemBind (RemB), are evaluated.
