PFAS and emerging contaminants in industrial water treatment - challenges and solutions for treatment and process simulation

Kristen Jenkins, PE

VP – Sustainability Solutions

OLI Systems, Inc.


Wastewater generated from industrial facilities varies widely by industry, and even within an industry depending on the type of source materials and production processes used. Similarly, the complexity of industrial water treatment varies depending on the wastewater matrix, number and type of constituents requiring treatment and discharge criteria. As regulations change, criteria are promulgated for more pollutants or the criteria are lowered, which increases the complexity of treatment and results in some facilities deciding to eliminate a liquid discharge to surface water completely. In addition, considering sustainability in the treatment evaluation requires a multi-faceted evaluation. This presentation will cover the changing regulatory status for PFAS and other emerging contaminants, impacts on treatment technologies, sustainability, and the role of process simulation in identifying a treatment solution.
