Removal of PFAS and Organic Micropollutants with Hollow Fiber NanofiltrationHollow fiber nanofiltration (HFNF) provides a robust barrier to PFAS compounds and organic micropollutants found in surface waters and wastewaters. With more evidence emerging linking PFAS and OMPs to negative health effects, regulations are being continually developed that limit concentrations allowed in drinking waters and effluent discharge. A description of the HFNF technology and its applicability in the overall process of PFAS and OMP removal from water, followed by lab and pilot scale results from tests on PFAS and OMP-laden surface and wastewaters will be presented and discussed.
Speakers: Nik Mehta (NX Filtration)

One-Step Surface Water to Drinking Water Pilot with Hollow Fiber Nanofiltration in Melbourne, FloridaHollow fiber nanofiltration (HFNF) membranes have gained increased attention in recent years due to certain performance advantages over traditional polyamide-polypiperazine based spiral-wound NF membranes in reusing difficult-to-treat water. NX Filtration provided a fully-automated, remote-monitored HFNF pilot system to Jacobs Engineering at the Melbourne Water Treatment Plant in Florida for a 3-month pilot test to produce drinking water quality from surface water in one step. This paper details the pilot results and compares the OPEX/CAPEX considerations for a full-scale 20 MGD plant with that of a conventional hollow fiber MF-spiral NF system.
