Chemistry Solves Problem of “Forever Chemicals”
While quick to point out the risks and liabilities of the EPA designating PFOA and PFOS as hazardous substances, Global Counsel also pointed out that “tailwinds abound for companies
monitoring and remediating PFAS chemicals, and chemical manufacturers developing PFAS-free products.”
New technologies hold the promise of destroying PFAS, taking the “forever” out of “ forever chemicals.” 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.
