Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) are persistent organic pollutants that were heavily produced in the industry from 1920 to 1979. This class of chemicals is a known carcinogen and has serious detrimental effects on animals and humans. Due to low water solubility, PCBs can persist for decades in soil and sediments, slowly leaching into stormwater and groundwater. The MYCELX Polisher outperforms all other PCB removal solutions.
Failure to meet federal or state requirements for PCB discharge can result in continuous and repetitive penalties. Common treatment technologies suffer from excess regulated waste generation and periodic breakthroughs during rainfall or other high-volume waste events.
The MYCELX Polisher is a patented and customized technology that removes PCBs from water and is the technology of choice for Superfund, energy and utility companies in North America.
