Research on Granular Activated Carbons for Clean Drinking Water

The video covers a talk by Prof. Susan D. Richardson from the University of South Carolina on Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) for Water Treatment. She states that the US Environmental Protection Agency only regulates 11 disinfection byproducts (DBPs) currently in drinking water but so far about 700 DBPs have been identified in drinking water.

A lot of research has taken place on GACs, but many people think it is expensive to switch to GACs. So, many plants use disinfectants from chlorine to chloramine. During the study, it was noted that plants using new GAC filters were able to remove as much as 80% of DBPs. She believes that it is a good method to follow to get safer drinking water. She is excited to be sharing her expertise on GACs with others attending the PITTCON Conference and Expo, as well as learn from them.
