What’s Up with 1,4-Dioxane

March 23, 2022

Join us on March 30 to see how working with a trusted partner who can optimize technologies and process flow can help municipalities achieve the best results at the lowest cost. One of a limited number of partners with two principal technologies addressing 1,4-dioxane, De Nora delivers experienced contaminant removal using ultraviolet advanced oxidation process (UV AOP), UV + hydrogen peroxide oxidation process (UV H2O2 or UV peroxide), ozone advanced oxidation process (ozone AOP), and chlorine advanced oxidation process.

According to the U.S. EPA, 1,4-dioxane is expected to move rapidly from soil to groundwater and may migrate rapidly in groundwater, ahead of other contaminants. While more prevalent in certain states, 1,4-dioxane has been detected in groundwater sources across the US. This synthetic chemical, widely used as an industrial stabilizer, has been deemed hazardous to humans by the U.S. EPA and could potentially impact tens of millions of people.

Some state agencies have begun to implement their own standards for 1,4-dioxane. In places where the problem is widespread, regulations are likely coming sooner than later. The good news is that municipalities have options to address this contaminant of emerging concern (CEC).

Understanding the 1,4-dioxane problem, evaluating treatment options and selecting the right technology while keeping operating expenses in check can be a lot to consider.  On March 30, De Nora will discuss how multi-barrier technologies combined with deep process knowledge and piloting expertise are addressing the problem of 1,4-dioxane contamination in North America.

We’ll look at:

  • What 1, 4-dioxane is and how it gets into water
  • Where 1, 4-dioxane is found, where it’s regulated, and current EPA guidelines
  • The principal AOP technologies for treatment and when they are applied
  • How to choose the right advanced oxidation process
  • Piloting for long-term success
