Fire Fighting Foam Containment

Aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) solution is used extensively in fire suppression systems for aviation facilities and fire training facilities. AFFF systems are proven and essential to protect these valuable, mission essential aircraft and hangar facilities. AFFF consists of fluorosurfactant (PFAS), hydrocarbon surfactants, solvents, inorganic salts, corrosion inhibitors, and water.

New generation AFFF is non-hazardous and biodegradable. The major concern with AFFF is the large volume of solution that can be produced from hangar fire protection systems. Because AFFF is biodegradable, the breakdown by bacteria consumes oxygen. Uncontrolled AFFF discharged to the environment can deprive aquatic life of oxygen and cause fish kills.

If allowed to enter sewage treatment facilities in large volumes, AFFF can disrupt the treatment process by killing necessary bacterial cultures within wastewater treatment facilities (WWTFs). Many WWTF’s prohibit the discharge of AFFF laden wastewater unless the AFFF concentration is less than 50 ppm.
