Federal | Military | Defense

Federal Industry

Since the earliest days of treating PFAS on military installations, ECT2 has been a proud partner of the Department of Defense for protecting human health and the environment. Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) has been a critical tool in fire suppression and fire-training at military bases worldwide. Its effectiveness in rapidly controlling fires has made it the go-to solution for military installations. However, while invaluable in fighting fires, AFFF contains PFAS, which is known to have environmental impacts and led to contamination in both soil and water.

ECT2’s Experience and Solutions

ECT2’s team is a clear choice for PFAS remediation on Federal sites. Technologies for cleaning up PFAS in all media is evolving as rapidly as PFAS regulations are changing. As a technology agnostic company, we are customer-centric and focused on designing custom treatment systems tailored to each unique project goals and treatment objectives. Our team of PFAS experts enables us to be on the cutting edge of many emerging contaminants that are concerning to federal entities, including contaminants such as selenium and 1,4-dioxane.

The value we bring to our clients includes, but is not limited to:

  • An in-house Research and Development (R&D) lab for bench scale testing and treatability studies to optimize PFAS treatment system designs
  • A team of experienced professional engineers and fabricators who have designed, built, and are operating projects in over nine countries, including the largest PFAS treatment systems in the world
  • Under our parent company, Montrose Environmental, we have PFAS projects at over 34 federal installations
  • Our PFAS treatment technologies have been applied to drinking water, groundwater, surface water, AFFF releases, investigative-derived waste (IDW), soil wash rinseate, and various pilot tests which has allowed us to have the knowledge to tackle any PFAS problem

With a wide range of PFAS treatment tools and solutions, we offer mobile and fixed treatment solutions for project sites and technologies such as Granular Activated Carbon (GAC), SORBIXTM PURE (single-use ion exchange resin), SORBIXTM RePURE (regenerable ion exchange resin), Foam Fractionation (FOAM-XTM), AvPURE, and our new proprietary AFFF fire truck and system cleanout and transition service. Additionally, we offer our patented SuperLoadingTM process that contributes to our unique approach for Separate > Concentrate > Destroy. The ECT2 team is very active in the ultimate destruction of PFAS with both internal efforts and external partnerships with leading destruction vendors.

ECT2 is proud to have partnered on projects with the U.S. Army, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), U.S. Air Force (USAF), U.S. Navy, Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), and the General Services Administration (GSA).

AFFF Transition and Cleanout Video

This new video captures the process and solution that the ECT2 team developed to transition and cleanout firefighting vehicles and equipment. Our non-toxic, biodegradable two-part cleaning solution performs considerably better than competing triple rinse solutions and is focused on providing a sustainable solution that generates less waste.
