Perchlorate Treatment Solutions

Ion Exchange

Demonstration of Ion Exchange Process to Remove Perchlorate from Water

ARA was tasked with engineering a perchlorate-selective, regenerable ion exchange process that would significantly reduce treatment cost. more

ARA provides complete solutions to perchlorate contamination problems. ARA developed the world’s first non-combustion commercial treatment system for perchlorate destruction. Our patented technologies have been proven to successfully remove perchlorate from highly contaminated ground water. Services range from perchlorate contamination consultation to the design, construction, and management of large-scale perchlorate remediation systems. Our experts ensure that the appropriate site-specific options are evaluated, and that cost effective solutions are implemented.

Services include:

  • Perchlorate treatability studies
  • Pilot testing
  • Process development
  • Engineering, construction, and operational support

Our patented perchlorate treatment solutions include biological, ion exchange, and chemical/physical treatment systems. ARA performs cleanup solutions for government and commercial clients in the U.S. and abroad.

Our research facility in Panama City, FL is equipped with bench scale reactor systems and with the analytical equipment necessary to evaluate the full spectrum of perchlorate treatment solutions for any given application. We perform pilot testing for drinking water, groundwater, and industrial wastewater applications. Our transportable treatment trailer can be configured with either biodegradation or ion exchange systems, or a combination of both, to meet onsite field demonstration needs. We have successfully engineered treatment systems that have been operating since 1997.
