TPO (Treatment Plant Operator) recently published an article entitled "Are PFAS Regulations Going Too Far?"

In the article, Ned Beecher of the Northeast Biosolids and Residuals Association says, "The challenge is that full destruction requires incineration at about 1,000 degrees Celsius, which is pretty hot. Most sewage sludge incinerators are not burning at high enough temperatures to destroy the PFAS.” On top of that, most Heat Exchanger manufacturers exclude from their warranties any damage due to heating medium inlet temperatures in excess of 927 degrees Celsuis!

Multiple Hearth Furances can consistently run these necessary temperatures, and IFCO has designed and upgraded many MHFs to do this. Why reinvent the wheel and spend millions of dollars when a Multiple Hearth Furnace can destroy PFAS?
