In our lab tests, we can remove these possibly carcinogenic compounds. Of course, lab and real life are not the same. In the surface or process water, multiple substances are present that might interfere with the PFAS uptake. Nevertheless, our treatment remains effective in removing PFAS from polluted natural water. Compared to incinerating the whole PFAS-containing stream, Inopsys’ alternative is more sustainable, in both financial and ecological terms.
Our new research project looks at other PFAS, such as smaller and more polar fluorinated compounds. The main goal is to work out the operational parameters of future water treatment installations. We are currently researching waste- and groundwater samples from contaminated sites, with stakeholders from the government and industry. The recent results look encouraging, and we are committed to providing a green and efficient solution to the PFAS challenge. Because at Inopsys, we are ready to say farewell to forever chemicals.
