CETCO launches FLUORO-SORB® adsorbent for the remediation of PFAS

According to CETCO, unlike other sorbent products that are selective and unpredictable in adsorbing PFAS, FLUORO- SORB® adsorbent binds the entire spectrum of PFAS — including PFOA, PFOS, PFHxS and PFNA — efficiently and in a wide variety of removal and remediation processes. FLUORO-SORB® adsorbent also controls the source of contamination and can be deployed easily as a flow through treatment media, as a passive in situ treatment (permeable reactive barrier and in-situ stabilization and solidification – ISS), or used in a CETCO® REACTIVE CORE MAT® composite geotextile mat for sediment capping.

Solarban 90 Solar Control Low-E Glass Solarban 90 glass combines industry-leading solar control performance with a true neutral-reflective clear-glass aesthetic. United with clear glass in a standard 1-inch IGU, Solarban 90 glass has a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.23, visible light transmittance of 51 percent and an LSG ratio of 2.22. Solarban 90 glass facilitates the use of smaller HVAC systems to reduce initial capital expenditures and long-term cooling costs. It also enables architects to design buildings with larger expanses of glass to promote daylighting, diminish the need for artificial lighting and connect building occupants to the outdoors. Mountain views, energy efficiency highlight new Ent Center at UC Colorado Springs. Photography by Tom Kessler
