A Naturally Elegant PFAS Remediation Technology by EPOC Enviro

PFAS REMEDIATION BY EPOC ENVIRO

What is SAFF®?

SAFF ®  (Surface Active Foam Fractionation) is a sustainable PFAS remediation technology, invented by EPOC Enviro. This award winning system uses the power of rising air bubbles to rapidly remove harmful target contaminants from the environment.

EPOC Enviro has pioneered the foam fractionation process to enable physical separation of PFAS from water using nothing more than aeration and clever design.

SAFF
 is an optimal technology for your PFAS remediation needs.

The SAFF® Difference

Proven

SAFF is a mature technology proven over many years on multiple sites globally to rapidly remove PFAS compounds from landfill leachate and other impacted waters

Robust

SAFF is a versatile and reliable technology that is able to manage complex chemistries in landfill leachate

Sustainable

SAFF contributes zero harm to the environment by using no consumables, minimal energy and labour, and produces no waste other than PFAS hyper-concentrate

Destruction Ready

SAFF achieves high PFAS concentration factors, making it easier and cheaper to destroy the PFAS waste

SAFF® DISTRIBUTOR - North America

Allonnia is a bio-ingenuity company dedicated to extracting value where others see waste. Allonnia believe that elegant solutions to the world’s biggest problems will be found in the world’s smallest organisms. 

SAFF® DISTRIBUTOR - Europe

 Envytech’s expert treatment techniques deliver the most effective, economic and environmentally sustainable solutions for emerging contaminants in soil and groundwater. With one of Sweden’s largest and most modern fleet of water treatment facilities for the treatment of PFAS-contaminated water and soils, we provide the latest treatment technologies on the world market.

 

4never Solution - North America

4never™ has combined the technologies and expertise of four partner companies to create one complete solution. This closed-loop, sustainable and contaminant-free solution eradicates PFAS, leaving no harmful byproducts.

SAFF20

 

SAFF20 offers a convenient containerised PFAS water treatment plant that suits many lower flow sites. Housed in a 40’ shipping container, the system is the perfect choice for smaller water treatment projects with short to medium term timeframes. 

The SAFF20 unit includes an enclosed weatherproof field office for staff to prepare samples and document the day’s activities, along with a control room and equipment storage area.  

The SAFF20 is a low maintenance, plug and play system that can be operating within minutes of arriving on site.  Its intuitive remote telemetry system means that it requires minimal on-site operator supervision. 

  • Capable of treating up to 20m3/hr. 
  • Configured with two primary SAFF vessels and one secondary SAFF vessel.  
  • Conveniently housed in an easily transportable 40’ shipping container (12.2 x 2.4m footprint).  
  • Lowest OPEX of any PFAS remediation technology.  
  • No consumables, such as IX Resin or GAC, are required.  
  • No solid waste produced. Concentrated PFAS is the only by-product of the process.  
  • Easily manages cross contamination, high organic and sediment loads, with no reduction in efficiency.   
  • Includes integrated site office, control room and spare parts storage area. 
  • Plug and play, self-bunded system which can be operating within minutes of arrival to site.  
  • Delivered to site using standard container handling vehicles, cranes or forklifts. 
  • High grade remote telemetry system means minimal operator presence on site.

SAFF40

 

SAFF40 is the compact workhorse in the SAFF fleet. The containerised solution provides high flow-through capabilities within a portable footprint. The SAFF40 suits the majority of PFAS impacted sites including landfills and source zone contamination areas. 

  • Capable of treating up to 40m3/hr. 
  • Configured with four primary SAFF vessels and two secondary SAFF vessels.  
  • Conveniently housed in an easily transportable 40’ shipping container (12.2 x 2.4m footprint).  
  • OPEX is many times lower than conventional treatment technologies.  
  • No consumables required (no IX Resin or GAC).  
  • No solid waste produced. Highly concentrated PFAS is the only by-product of the process.  
  • Can manage all contaminated water types from drinking water through to landfill leachates and sewerage. 
  • Covered workstation for sample preparation and paperwork.  
  • Highest throughput, lowest treatment cost containerised system available.  
  • Plug and play, self-bunded system can be operating within minutes of arrival to site. 
  • Delivered to site using standard container handling vehicles, cranes or forklifts. 
  • High grade remote telemetry system means minimal operator presence on site.
