Claros Technologies seeks a cleaner Earth

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could wipe away pollution with a sponge? Turns out you can, and a new company in Northeast has developed the technology to do it. A spinoff of a University of Minnesota research program, 15-employee Claros Technologies just recently moved into 1600 Broadway NE. This little group of scientists has come up with a way to remove per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAs) from wastewater. It’s a major game-changer.

Claros Technologies, Kureha partner to develop a cutting-edge PFAS capture-and-destruction system

Claros Technologies announced its strategic partnership with Kureha America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Kureha Corporation Japan to scale up a state-of-art technology that is capable of capturing, concentrating and destroying “forever chemicals” (PFAS) from wastewater. The comprehensive solution is able to capture and concentrate PFAS chemicals, then permanently break their carbon-fluorine bonds into safe, naturally occurring elements. Kureha will collaborate with claros to develop commercially feasible system and install the system for Asian markets.
