Arsenic removal

Iselin, N.J.-based Engelhard Corp. has developed technology to enable smaller municipalities to more efficiently and cost-effectively meet tough new standards for the removal of arsenic from drinking water. The USEPA has adopted new standards that lower the maximum contaminant level for arsenic in any U.S. drinking water system to 10 parts per billion (ppb), down from the current 50 ppb, starting in January 2006. According to the USEPA, 97 percent of the affected water systems are small, serving fewer than 10,000 people each.
