The PFAS challenge: how is Puraffinity solving it with technology?

Project specs




Henrik Hagemann






PFAS may be the worst global environmental challenge of modern times, so there’s a need to think outside of the box to tackle these chemicals. Current technologies aren’t able to effectively remove PFAS due to their unique chemical and physical properties, making them highly resistant and stable in the environment and water. Puraffinity’s unique approach leverages science and engineering disciplines to design and manufacture targeted adsorbents that can remove PFAS across a wide range of applications.
