What is FluxSorb™ IS?

FluxSorb™ IS is an injectable colloidal carbon product (CCP) designed to target difficult-to-treat contaminants like chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs), benzene/toluene/ethylbenzene/xylenes (BTEX), per and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), and other pollutants. It is manufactured exclusively for Cascade by FluxSorb Technologies, an affiliate of ADA Carbon Solutions, the leading provider of activated carbon in North America.

What Is It Designed to Address?

  • Chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs)
  • Per and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)
  • Benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylenes (BTEX), and methyl-tert butyl ether (MTBE)
  • And more

Cascade ChemistriesHow Does It Work?

Activated carbon is a class of adsorbent materials that have irregular, amorphous carbon atom structure and a high surface area. The form of the activated carbon can range from granular to powdered to colloidal, depending on the required end-use application.

FluxSorb™ IS is an activated CCP consisting of low micron size  particles, which allow for effective delivery and distribution within the subsurface. Once injected, the particles demobilize and create an effective treatment zone for contact with the contaminated groundwater plume. As the water flows, contaminants are captured within activated carbon pores, where their concentrations are reduced  through sequestration, destruction, biodegradation, and/or neutralization.

Why FluxSorb™ IS?

  • High surface area makes it especially effective in absorbing pollutants and providing surface oxidation, reduction, biodegradation and metal complexing
  • High persistence in the subsurface allows for greater efficacy against recalcitrant chemicals
  • Injectable colloidal activated carbon that is suited for highly specialized high-flow applications 
  • Shorter time frame to achieving groundwater targets
  • Shorter time frame to reducing risk starting during active remediation projects
  • Sustainable groundwater reductions
  • Minimized breakdown products or metals conversion to a higher risk oxidation state
  • Eliminates safety or site infrastructure risks associated with hazardous chemistries
  • Easily integrated as a combined remedy with other remediation chemistries and amendments
