ADYA WATER PURIFYING SOLUTION REDUCES WEST VIRGINIA CHEMICAL (MCHM) BY 99.9%
Through testing conducted by an independent, U.S. EPA-certified laboratory, it was determined that Adya, Inc.’s water purifying solution, Adya Clarity, reduces up to 99.9% of the chemical 4-Methylcyclohexanemethanol (MCHM) from water.
The chemical, 4-Methylcyclohexanemethanol (MCHM) was spilled into the Elk River just upstream from the Kanawha County municipal water intake in Charleston, West Virginia on January 9, 2014, contaminating the water supply to over 300,000 West Virginia residents.
The U.S. EPA-certified laboratory, Envirotek Laboratories, Inc. of Mullica Hill, New Jersey, conducted the MCHM Reduction Test using Adya’s water purifying solution, Adya Clarity. The following procedures were performed:
Three liters of tap water were spiked with 400 μg of 4-Methyl-1-cyclohexanemethanol (MCHM) in a flask. Added 12 mL (4mLper liter) of Adya Clarity solution to the spiked solution, the flask was closed, mixed well and let sit for 12, 24, and 48 hours inside a fume hood. One liter of the solution was filtered through a 0.45 micron paper after 12 hours, a second liter of the solution was filtered through a 0.45 micron paper after 24 hours, the final liter of the solution was filtered through a 0.45 micron paper after 48 hours, the initial spiked solution and the filtered solutions were tested following the EPA method 525 for drinking water. The results are summarized below:
FILTERED WATER RESULTS
|Time Before Filtering||MCHM concentration in Adya Clarity Filtered Water||% Reduction|
|12 hours.||7.5 µg/L||94.4 %|
|24 hours||3.5 µg/L||97.4 %|
|48 hours||<0.1 µg/L||99.9 %|
The Adya Claritysolution combined with the 0.45 microns filter paper reduced the MCHM concentration in the tap water by 99.9 % after 48 hours treatment.
WHAT IS MCHM (4-methylcyclohexanemethanol)?
4-methylcyclohexanemethanol (MCHM) is a chemical used to process coal. MCHM does not have explosive nor flammable properties. It is classified as an organic alcohol with an odor reported to smell like licorice.
HOW DANGEROUS IS MCHM TO HUMANS?
Unfortunately, information regarding the impact of MCHM to human health and the environment, either acute or chronic, is not fully known. Apparently, there are no human health studies. One study, owned by Eastman Chemical Company, where MCHM was tested on rats, is considered to be proprietary information and has not been released to the public.
