Dr. John Brockgreitens, research and development director at Claros Technologies, talks to Madelaine Thomas about its proprietary technology that completely destroys PFAS from textile wastewater and materials.
Claros Technologies, a US-based company that was incubated at the University of Minnesota, is working to clean up the industry by capturing and destroying per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in textile wastewater. This is a huge step forward for the industry, particularly as companies in manufacturing nations are hit by new regulations that reduce the amount of textile effluent and wastewater that companies can create and dispose of.
Claros Technologies has been working on its proprietary technology since 2018. Dr John Brockgreitens, research and development director at the company explains: “We are able to actively grow, for lack of a better word, chemical functionality on to support materials.”
