Calgon touts filtration system
Removes chemical contaminant from water

ROBINSON TOWNSHIP  A technology developed by Calgon Carbon Corp. is
allowing communities in California to draw potable water from sources
previously contaminated by an additive found in rocket fuel.

CEO Jim Cederna said the Robinson Township-based company's ISEP system 
short for ion separation  is being used by municipal authorities and
water providers to remove a chemical called perchlorate from water that
flows from the San Gabriel Water Basin, near Los Angeles, to residents
in Southern California.

When the toxic chemical is ingested by humans, it can affect thyroid
hormone production, which can cause illnesses such as Graves' disease
and cancer, in addition to impaired neurological development in infants
and fetuses, according to the federal Environmental Protection Agency.
