Method For Removing PFAS in Liquids

VALUE PROPOSITION Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a widely used but toxic and carcinogenic group of man-made chemicals. They are extremely resistant to degradation and will persist in the environment and in the human body. PFAS are highly water soluble, thus contaminated drinking water is the primary source of exposure. The most common...
