Battelle’s PFAS Annihilator Victorious Over ‘Forever Chemicals’

Jeff Kart of Forbes writes about a new breakthrough technology to combat PFAS chemicals.

The C3 Take
  • Per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) chemicals, or “forever chemicals,” have been found in water, air, fish, and soil and have been linked to harmful health in humans.
  • Battelle has created a water oxidation technology called the PFAS Annihilator that can breakdown these harmful chemicals.
  • In its testing and trial period, the Annihilator demonstrated more than a 99.9% destruction of total PFAS materials.
  • This innovation could pave the way for a cleaner and healthier environment.

“‘The end product is inert salts and PFAS-free water,’ Dindal says, summing up the results of a recent pilot demonstration project at a wastewater treatment facility in Michigan. There, a mobile Annihilator was used to ‘safely and completely destroy’ PFAS in contaminated water at a plant operated by Heritage-Crystal Clean.”
