Can we get rid of "forever toxins"?

Jan 16, 2020 6:00:00 AM / by Riggs Eckelberry


Good morning!


That was last week's headline in Newsweek.

What's this about?

You're going to hear a lot more about perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), which are generated by things like nonstick coatings on pans.

They are called "forever toxins" because they don't seem to leave the human body.

Now there is the fight between Congress (with its PFAS Action Act of 2019), and the Administration, which says it already has its own PFAS Action Plan at the EPA...

Well, I'm not about to take sides, but it is a good thing these PFAS are getting attention, because they are a very nasty pollutant in water.

How do we get rid of PFAS?

It's very hard to treat water for PFAS. But it does appear that using electricity (that's us) can work, in conjunction with other technologies.

The quantities of these toxins are very small, requiring precision equipment to even measure! We made that investment at our headquarters. 

Liquid chromatography- mass spectometry device To measure minute quantities of toxins, we installed this sophisticated Liquid
chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC-MS) device at our HQ in 2017.

Coming together for a solution

The solution to PFAS is a high priority. We should put aside any proprietary concerns.

Therefore, I am offering to contribute our knowhow, without obligation, to help in this fight.
