International Fiber Journal March 2023: Nanocomposites: Self-disinfecting Fabrics

Crescoating Infuses Textiles with Antimicrobial Properties That Don’t Wash Out - The paradox of hospitalization is that the very places patients go to improve their health can make them sick. Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are a major public health threat in the United States, with one in 31 patients getting infected during or after receiving treatment in hospitals. A new Crescoating technology creates self-disinfecting fabrics that are as safe for the environment as they are for people, holding the promise of significantly reducing HAIs, which could save many lives and billions of dollars annually.


Hawaii Public Radio: Company says new technology destroys PFAS in wastewater, landfill effluence

The Conversation has been looking at these forever chemicals known as PFAS — compounds that do not break down in the environment. We connected with John Brockgreitens, the vice president for research and development at Claros Technologies, about the company’s success with using ultraviolet light to treat PFAS in water.


Waste360: How Innovative Technologies are Battling PFAS in Water Systems

Recycling water is one of the best hopes for maintaining access to reliable, safe water sources for communities nationwide. Water resilience is increasingly important since climate change is predicted to threaten water availability and water quality. New technologies that provide robust testing, capture and concentration and permanent destruction of PFAS can instill confidence that recycled wastewater can be safely used for drinking, irrigation and watershed restoration without any harm to human or environmental health.

Star Tribune: Destroying ‘forever chemicals’ is a technological race that could become a multibillion-dollar industry

Several companies, including Claros Technologies in Minnesota, are trying to engineer ways to destroy PFAS chemicals. That's a question researchers and companies across the country are eager to answer, as regulation tightens on PFAS — per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances — and the chemicals' producers face a mountain of lawsuits.
