Abstract : The overall objective of this work was to evaluate the efficacy of using FXB bioreactors and post-treatment to remove perchlorate from drinking water and to produce water that meets all regulations. Specific project emphases included the demonstration of sustained perchlorate removal capabilities; the identification and evaluation of process limitations and potential failure scenarios; and the development of realistic designs and cost estimates for full-scale, potable FXB biological perchlorate treatment.
