Within this overarching theme, this volume consists of two parts. While the contributors of this volume are from an array of country backgrounds including Australia, China, Denmark, Germany, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan, the UK and the USA, the majority of the chapters refer to Asia, especially China, as the powerhouse of the global economic growth. We hope that the methodological insights offered in this volume will help build the theoretical bridges between the West and the East.

Research Methodology in Strategy and Management. These discoveries have prompted a greater focus on PFAS from research institutions, regulatory agencies, and the public. Several US states have issued more stringent guidelines.
Recent legislative action is moving toward designation of these compounds as hazardous substances under the CERCLA designation which would result in EPA regulations and significant industrial impacts. This presentation will present an overview of the chemistry and applications of PFAS, a review of regulations and current efforts to curb PFAS exposure and contamination, and current methods for removal of PFAS from water.

Per- and poly fluoroalkyl substances PFAS pose health risks to the public which come with long-term exposure. State advisory limits range from 70 parts per trillion ppt down to as low as 13 ppt. PFAS are highly stable due to the strong carbon-fluoride bonds and are highly miscible in water which make their treatment challenging. Therefore, conventional destructive techniques are ineffective, and most treatment options rely on specialized separation strategies. One approach treats PFAS in groundwater landfill leachate by implementing a permeable barrier.
Batch and column experiments demonstrated and optimized in-situ PFAS removal from the groundwater by evaluating different adsorptive organic media mixed with soil. These media included wood shavings and high organic content biochars. Removal capacities were quantified from batch tests and breakthrough curves were obtained from the column study. This technology utilizes a proprietary anode which is highly selective for PFAS destruction and requires the addition of sodium sulfate to increase the electric conductivity.
Bench-scale experiments in a 5-gallon, prototype reactor have been performed using laboratory PFAS-spiked water, contaminated groundwater, and ozone-fractionation process-effluent water, in which the PFAS concentrations were parts per billion ppb , ppb, and ppb, respectively. These approaches highlight the diversity of applications within the PFAS-treatment realm. Currently, removal techniques that rely solely on separation, such as granular activated carbon and ion exchange resin, are more mature and widely implemented.
However, for scenarios such as landfill leachate plume migration containment, the use of biochar or other media mixed with soil may constitute a more cost effective, and even sustainable approach. Lastly, the search for reliable technologies capable of ultimately destroying PFAS is important, and electrochemical oxidation can play a role as a potential tool and alternative to treat these contaminants in combination with separation techniques. Since then, many other commercial uses have been found for PFAS compounds.
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl compounds, commonly known as PFAS, are a large family of synthetic chemicals that are recognized as emerging contaminants. PFAS are found in a wide range of products we use every day, including fire retardants, water repellents, car waxes, and even food packaging. As a group, PFAS compounds do not biodegrade but do bioaccumulate. They are water soluble and very mobile. They are found in groundwaters near landfills, airports, military bases, car washes, and various manufacturing sites. Although some are not especially dangerous, others have been shown to cause serious health issues.
In this overview presentation, we present information regarding the origin of these compounds, a brief history of how they came to be a recognized health risk, and the current best practices for removing them from our potable water supplies. In this session we will focus on some of the new -ish water and wastewater treatment challenges that the power industry is currently facing.

Come to this session and get energized! This paper shares the results of a recent literature survey conducted by the Electric Power Research Institute that was focused on capturing key permit information across multiple facilities. This work provides new insights into what the industry is seeing with regards to toxicity-based permit requirements. This paper summarizes key findings related to the extent of toxicity-related permit issues for the power industry.
LOAD Linear Optimization and Assessment of Dispatch model optimizes hourly power generation by minimizing generation costs and constraining water use.
Imposition of water constraints in drought-prone Southern Texas indicates fuel switching, electricity price increments, coal plant cycling and localized shifting of generation in the region. Power plant wastewater treatment plants employing conventional mixers have difficulty achieving stringent metals limits due to formation of colloidal particles that pass through clarifiers and granular media filters.
Case studies are presented where adjusting pH setpoints, changing to low-shear mixers and pumps and relocating sludge recirculation to the same tank as ferric addition promoted generation of high density solid that improved metals removal performance. Jeffery Easton, P. John McLennan, Ph. Low-level boron removal from wastewater is a rising challenge for industry, and an upcoming regulatory pressure for many.
Boron is a difficult constituent to remove or treat with traditional methods and processes.

It is highly soluble in most forms and presents significant removal difficulty due to its small size and often uncharged nature. Traditional treatment technologies such as precipitation, coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration including membranes and common ion exchange have little or no effect on boron compounds in low concentration. This paper presents an overview of existing and new treatment technologies for the removal of boron from wastewater. Specifically-adapted technology is required to make boron separations possible.
Therefore, it is beneficial for engineers to know what technologies are available when approaching a new boron removal requirement and how to apply those technologies. Boron removal methods such as boron-specific ion exchange, boron specific membranes, boron sorbents and hybrid boron removal technologies are presented for consideration.
Data and predictive model simulations are offered to guide the design of lab and pilot studies in order to determine full-scale applicability of select technologies.
