Claros Technologies

Textile Industry Targeted as a Major Contributor to PFAS Pollution

New technologies hold the promise of destroying PFAS, taking the “forever” out of “forever chemicals.” One such technology was created by Claros Technologies. The chemical engineering company provides an end-of-life solution for PFAS, with a sorbent that captures PFOS and PFOA, a process that concentrates them, and a defluorination treatment that breaks their powerful chemical bonds.
