Pallas PFAS Filter Cartridge
Single Point of Use Domestic Water Filtration
Is the tap water in our European countries safe? Definitely! The European Drinking Water Directive provides clear guidelines and monitors the quality of our drinking water. Yet we see the demand for Point-of-Use (POU) solutions increasing. Events like Corona, PFAS pollution, microplastics in our waters... ensure that the population is more aware of how they use their drinking water. A good evolution that keeps us all on our toes.
As Pollet Water Group, together with our customers and partners, we are in the front row when it comes to detecting trends, new technologies and the continuous improvement of water treatment. It all comes to perfecting water! As an example, we saw an increase in demand for single-point-of-use cartridge filters within the domestic segment. PFAS contamination dominated the Belgian news for months, but is known across the continent. The production and use of PFAS in products has resulted in the contamination of drinking water supplies in several European countries. Do not be mistaken: it remains healthy to drink tap water. There are very low levels of PFAS in tap water and it can be filtered out. But the specific cartridges further reduce that concentration of PFAS.
What is PFAS?
PFAS is the collective name for more than 4700 chemical substances that include a combination of fluorine compounds and alkyl groups. Per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) substances are resistant to high temperatures and are water, dirt and grease repellent. They are therefore widely used in industrial applications and consumer products. The new European Drinking Water Directive (EU 2020/2184) includes PFAS as a 'new' drinking water parameter. The European standard for the 20 most relevant individual PFAS-20 is 100 nanograms per litre (ng/l). The water companies continue the measurement efforts in a targeted manner and map out the options for reducing the concentrations or at least not allowing them to increase.
