Helping Provide Clean Water


Water Cleaning Technology

Strategic Solutions Integrated, Inc (SSI) has a team of personnel who understand the needs of providing clean water for a multitude of challenges facing planet earth. We work to assist in the application of uniquely designed water technology to cheaply address multiple verticals impacting clean water and seek to find innovative and disruptive technologies in the clean water sector.  

SSI is proud to bring technology that provides real solutions to addressing the country's poly- and perfluoroalkly substances (PFAS) challenges.  Introducing PFAS-Clear and the DEFENDER. 


Water Technologies

Strategic Solutions Integrated, Inc. developed a portfolio of water cleaning capability that addresses water challenges facing the planet. Some of the greatest challenges stem from the inability to provide agile access to water sources that require cleaning. We are addressing this challenge through mobile systems that are capable of operating in more than ninety percent of locations around the world.


SSI’s proprietary and patented PFAS-Clear mobile systems reduces PFAS-contaminated wastewater and other toxic contaminants such as Trichloroethylene (TCE) to non-detectable levels and eliminates metals and other organic and inorganic compounds to below the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Maximum Contamination Level (MCL) for safe drinking water at the customer's location.


PFAS is a primary component of AFFF (Aqueous Film-Forming Foam), which is a firefighting foam that quickly extinguishes fuel fires on ships and aircraft.  Two members of the PFAS family, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) are under review for potential harm to humans.  Both PFOA and PFOS are in the news for contaminating ground water.   AFFF is used as part of fire suppression systems and in emergency responses at chemical plants, oil refineries and rigs, and notably in aviation operations. AFFF works by quickly spreading out over the surface of the fuel, depriving the fire of oxygen, quickly extinguishing even large fires. The foam also prevents the hot fuel from reigniting. AFFF that contain fluorine chemicals are used to put out dangerous fuel fires quickly and keep them out; however, recent legislation is phasing this out of the Department of Defense operations.  The EPA established the Lifetime Health Advisory (LHA) at 70 parts per trillion (ppt) for PFOA and PFOS in 2016. In 2024, the EPA established a 4 ppt MCL for PFOA and PFOS in drinking water.  SSI's technology was already in compliance with this new regulatory limit in 2020 and has proven its capability to reduce PFOA and PFOS as well as 27 other PFAS analytes to non-detectable levels (< 1.8 ppt) in projects for the Navy in 2023, meeting the EPA's proposed new regulatory guidance.  SSI continues to improve its ability to eliminate PFAS-contaminated wastewater through improved destruction capability and multiple filtering systems designed to remove and, in many cases, destroy the PFAS molecule at the customer's local site.  This eliminates the costly transportation requirements and eliminates the chance a hazardous spill incident.  SSI's PFAS systems also reduces GenX, PFBS, PFNA, and PFHsX to zero, which meets the EPA's target Hazard Index Value for these isotopes of less than "1".  


The DOD instituted numerous policies designed to limit or eliminate all incidental discharge of AFFF and is in the process of replacing AFFF from current storage vessels with a similar fluorine molecule structure (replacing 8-chain molecule structure with a 6-chain molecule structure).  Research is underway to replace the fluorine molecule structure with a safe substitute; however, this will take many years. 


Because high concentration levels of PFOA and PFOS molecules and other PFAS isotopes are in AFFF, Department of Defense (DOD) facilities, other Government agencies, State and Local Firefighting operations collect AFFF and store it for later destruction. The destruction process is under review and is time consuming, expensive, and requires transport of dangerous materials on local roadways over far distances.

The PFAS Challenge

Finding Environmentally Safe and Economically Available Methods to Permanently Destroy PFAS Isotopes

  • PFAS contamination is a growing concern both at home and abroad.

  • Incineration is currently not approved by the DoD and solidification does not destroy the PFAS molecule creating legacy issues.

  • EPA has instituted new Federal regulatory levels of 4 parts per trillion (ppt) for PFOA & PFOS and considering designating PFOA and PFOS as a HAZARD.

The Solution

 SSI’s PFAS Remediation Systems:

  • Reduces PFOA, PFOS, GENX, PFBA, PFNS, PFHsX to non-detectable levels (<1.8 parts per trillion) --- NOW! 

  • New system coming on line that will be able to reduce PFAS molecules to less than .016 ppt.

  • Meets EPA’S proposed National limits of 4 PPT for PFOA, PFOS and “1” for GenX, PFBS, PFNA, & PFHxS!

  • Eliminates legacy issues of PFAS remaining in landfills, protecting the DOD from future liability issues!

  • Significantly reduces cost to eliminate PFAS from your installation - up to 40% reduction!

  • Reduces/eliminates the transportation challenge - all PFAS elimination operations are conduct at the customer's local site requiring no transportation of cleaned water!

  • Meets DOD destruction requirements!

SSI's PFAS cleaning systems reduce PFAS analytes to non-detectable levels.  It also removes many heavy metals, organic, and inorganic contaminates to below the MCL established by the EPA for safe drinking water.  The PFAS-contaminated wastewater is reduced up to 100 percent.  This results in a significant reduction in volume of PFAS-contaminated wastewater, if any volume at all.  The filtered water effluent resulting from the PFAS-Clear operations meets EPA standards and can be discharged to the ground or in a local sewer system in accordance with Federal, State, and Local requirements.  

PFAS-Clear System

PFAS-Clear is a mobile operation comprised of a proprietary system of components designed by SSI to treat PFAS-contaminated wastewater.  PFAS-Clear is designed to address problems with water contaminated by PFAS, other water-soluble toxins, hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS). PFAS-Clear successfully cleaned PFAS-contaminated wastewater to non-detectable levels from 72 million ppt to non-detectable levels to <4 ppt. It also reduced PFAS-contaminated bilge water and PFAS-contaminated sewage water to non-detectable levels.  PFAS-Clear mobile system processes between 5,000 and 20,000 gallons per day and is scalable allowing for larger projects to be completed.  The system has a small footprint allowing agile adaptation to almost any job site. The process is environmentally safe and provides a solution to total remediation of PFAS-contaminated wastewater.

A PFAS-contaminated and other soluble toxin ground water cleaning system

The DEFENDER is patent pending technology designed to stop toxic underground plume migration, creating a “PFAS invisible fence” protecting adjacent properties and underground aquifers from further contamination.  The system can be sub partitioned within a contaminated plume to address specific challenges. The DEFENDER cleans the plume faster through the use of a series of hydraulic loops designed to provide continuous (24/7/365) processing/flushing of cleaned water and a hybrid of current and proprietary horizontal technologies. The DEFENDER has the ability to eliminate contaminated plumes up to 90% faster than current pump and treat technology.

The system eliminates the need for site excavation resulting in reduced environmental impact; eliminates above ground piping requirements; almost eliminates vertical well operations; and, eliminates water removal from the site. Furthermore, DEFENDER cleans all water-soluble contaminants including PFOS/PFOA, hydrocarbons, TCE etc.  (If water can pick up the contaminant, DEFENDER can clean it).

The system operates at a lower capital cost compared to current pump and treat techniques and provides continuous plume cleanup with regular measurement of contaminant levels in the groundwater which allows for an ability to quantify cleanup processes.

Hydrodynamic Activation & Cavitation (HYDAC)™ System

SSI’s fixed and mobile proprietary HYDAC™ technology works on the principals of hydrodynamic cavitation using an orifice to restrict fluid flow to create a pressure drop in the fluid downstream of the orifice resulting in short-lived microbubbles. When the microbubbles collapse, they induce temperatures that can reach up to 10,000 K, which cause chemicals, heavy metals, and biologicals to be denatured and rendered inert. The insoluble salts precipitate out and are removed. The HYDAC™ eliminates a high percentage of heavy metals, viruses, and all biologicals.  The system is combined with a specialized ionizer that further reduces biologicals. 

The HYDAC  provides:

  • 95% removal of Heavy Metals of Concern
  • 100% of Biologicals        100% Degassing

The Human Powered Pump Purifier (HumP3)​

SSI works with North American Recycling Technologies to bring the the Human Powered Pump Purifier (HumP3)™.  The HumP3™ is a double reciprocating device which uses the force of gravity to assist a person to pump thousands of gallons of water a day with very little effort. Simply stated, “no power source other than human power is required”. This system can be operated by a child or small adult and produce 24k gallons per day (GPD) or 1000 gallons per hour.

  • The system uses a swinging pendulum, which makes it much easier to pump water manually from any source of water or wells to 100 feet.
  • The HumP3™ will be combined with the HERO™ or CeraPur™ system to provide ultra-pure, potable water at little or no costs
  • The general-purpose pump is specifically designed to pump surface water by suctioning and can lift water up to 100 feet from a water source to the pump.
  • This pump is very durable, easy to maintain and can be set up and operate near a river, creek, pond, lake or any flooded area within about one hour.
  • In addition to treating virtually any type of contaminated water source, the machine can also be set to bypass all filters when it is needed to pump out a cistern or flooded area or for irrigation or sanitation needs.
  • There are four different pressure settings that can be selected depending on the desire of the operator. Changing from one setting to another is easy and takes only a few seconds.
  • The HumP3™ has the option of being operated with power, if desired.
  • The HumP3™ comes in three sizes to accommodate a range of needs by the customer: small (100 GPD), Medium (1,000 GPD), and Large (24,000 GPD). Larger systems require special order.
