GLRPPR Sector Resource: Why Activated Carbon Makes Sense for PCB Remediation

Title:
Why Activated Carbon Makes Sense for PCB Remediation

Abstract:
Careless disposal practices and accidental discharges in the past contribute to the present amount of PCBs in groundwater and in sediments of rivers and lakes. Growing public and government concern over health hazards has led to new practices to safely remove and dispose of PCBs. Residual contamination has been effectively treated by systems using activated carbon adsorption media. (pdf, 3 pp)
