A Report on PFAS Disposal
- Aug 1, 2022 5:18 pm GMT
A new article has come out discussing technology for disposal of PFAS chemicals. The article mentions filtration techniques using activated carbon, which takes the chemicals out of water, but still leaves the disposal problem. The new systems, to actually break down PFAS chemicals, are being developed by Battelle, with its PFAS 'Annihilator', the University of California at Riverside, the State University of New York at Stony Brook and other universities. The systems are electromagnetic, or use enzymes, or use metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), among others. It is reasonable to suspect that Battelle's system, which seems furthest along, could be commercialized on a large scale within a year or two. Battelle's system does produce carbon dioxide, and this seems like a good opportunity for a collaboration with carbon capture technology.
