Our DEXSORB adsorbents offer superior performance against micropollutants compared to activated carbon, a nonselective charcoal introduced over 100 years ago. From dosing requirements to adsorption rates to life cycle costs, DEXSORB is a 21st century technology that solves the pervasive problem of water contamination by harmful chemicals in dilute concentrations of one part per billion and less.
DEXSORB vs Activated Carbon
DEXSORB MP achieves full removal of micropollutants such as Bisphenol-A (BPA) in seconds as compared to minutes for activated carbon.

DEXSORB MP outperformed Coconut Coir Activated Carbon (CCAC) in removal studies of 83 micropollutant compounds, removing 30 chemicals to more than 90% in flow through tests compared to only two by CCAC.

DEXSORB PFAS can reduce PFOA levels in groundwater to meet 2017 EPA and New Jersey limits.
DEXSORB significantly outperformed FS600 activated carbon in the removal of PFOA and PFOS in high concentration studies with a diluted AFFF solution.
