Phosphate fertilizer stacks

In 2016, the United States Environmental Protection Agency reported that nearly 6000 municipal drinking water systems violated the maximum concentration of lead allowed in drinking water by the Agency’s Lead and Copper Rule, putting tens of millions of Americans at risk. The problem of lead contamination of drinking water is likely significantly widespread, as Flint, Michigan’s water supply was not on this list. Since drinking water is most often transported from municipal purification facilities to individual households through lead pipes, solutions to this problem are not easily found. Ideally, low cost, high flow lead removal filters for both residential and commercial supply lines would address this significant need. Periodic Products, in conjunction with one of its industry partners, is currently developing an economical high-flow filtration system utilizing one of its metal-binding polymers to address this pressing need.
