Claros Technologies, a chemical engineering company, is a case study in how such technologies can provide an end-of-life solution for PFAS. The company has a sorbent that captures PFOS and PFOA in water, a process that concentrates them, and a defluorination treatment that breaks their powerful chemical bonds.
Front page coverage in the Minneapolis Star Tribune Business section on May 27th, 2022 highlights the importance and enthusiasm around the recently announced partnership with the Kureha Corporation. "Claros Technologies, which last year raised $5.35 million in venture capital, has struck its first major agreement to scale its system to "capture, concentrate and destroy" PFAS chemicals from wastewater."
Claros is proud to be featured as the University of Minnesota celebrates the launch of its 200th Startup. The foundational patent technology was born at the University and was nurtured through the TechComm startup pipeline to be launched in 2018.
Claros Technologies announced the closing of a $5 million Series A funding round led by Portland based 3x5 Partners.
