Scientific technology may have led to the PFAS contamination problem, but it’s also leading to solutions. Technologies developed at the University of Minnesota and being offered by Claros Technologies detect and destroy PFAS in wastewater, leaving only detoxified water and naturally occurring elements.

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.

Metal nanoparticle-coated textile has been proven to possess antimicrobial properties but has not been adopted by healthcare facilities due to risks of leaching and subsequent loss of function, toxicity, and environmental pollution. This work presents the development and testing of antimicrobial zinc nanocomposite textiles, fabricated using a novel Crescoating process.
