Accelerate your biologic drug development with Praesto®
Purolite resins effectively remove perchlorate to create drinking water that is clean and safe.
Purolite has been at the forefront of perchlorate ion exchange resin development since it was first discovered in groundwater. We produced some of the first resins used in the industry and have continued to improve our offerings in accordance with our commitment to helping provide clean safe drinking water. Perchlorate-selective ion exchange resin is the best available technology for impacted groundwater remediation. We work closely with communities and municipalities throughout the world to help deliver perchlorate-free drinking water and remediation solutions.
Perchlorates enter the environment through industrial activities. The most common sources are solid propellant for rockets, missiles, and fireworks —but perchlorate can also be naturally occurring. Perchlorate in drinking water supplies is a growing health concern as it can damage the thyroid gland that controls human growth, development and metabolism. It is particularly detrimental to developing fetuses and young children as it can affect brain development and cause hearing loss, speech delays or impairment, as well as have other effects on motor skills.
