In April and May 1990, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), under the Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) program, demonstrated Dupont/Oberlin's microfiltration system at the Pamerton Zinc Superfund (PZS) site in Palmerton, Pennsylvania. The microfiltration system combines Dupont's Tyvek T-980 filter media with Oberlin's automatic pressure filter and is designed to remove solids larger than 0.1 micron in diameter from liquid wastes. The microfiltration system demonstrated at the PZS site was evaluated primarily in terms of its ability to remove metals (mainly zinc) and particulates from the contaminated groundwater on site, while producing a dry filter cake and filtrate that meet applicable disposal requirements.
