Dec. 30, 2014, Denver – A recent study concluded SBA-IX can be effective for removing
hexavalent chromium from a Colorado district’s ground water supply.

pilot-scale testing to explore the treatment process for removing hexavalent
chromium (Cr(VI)) from the District’s groundwater supplies, said a news release.

The primary goals of this study were to
evaluate Cr(VI) removal performance of strong base anion exchange
(SBA-IX) and to compare and validate commercially available SBA-IX resin
performance in terms of Cr(VI) exchange capacity, regeneration quality,
and frequency requirements.

Results were released in a study entitled "Hexavalent Chromium Treatment with Strong Base Anion
Exchange."
