PFAS & Emerging Contaminants

Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and emerging contaminants don’t break down easily, making them difficult to remove from our water sources. Newterra offers pre-engineered adsorber filtration systems for effective removal at any flow rate.

Meet compliance and keep the public safe with filtration and treatment systems that are easy to operate. Newterra designs custom treatment systems to meet the direct needs of your site with cost-efficiency and reliability at the forefront.

From municipalities to military installations, we provide optimal PFAS removal design that accounts for each water source’s overall composition, type and concentration of PFAS compounds. This allows us to customize a solution that’s energy-efficient and high-performing for your unique location.

Reduce Costs With Energy Efficiency

The most cost-beneficial PFAS removal system uses energy efficiently. Newterra considers the physics of your treatment equipment and the impact on energy usage to tailor a system that maximizes your budget. Our systems also have the lowest pressure drop in the industry, which effectively reduces energy usage.
