SHERBROOKE, August 17, 2022 – E2metrix, a leading Canadian innovator for clean and green water treatment, announces today a successful delivery and start-up of its first US-based commercial-scale ECOTHOR®-AOP unit for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) destruction in water.
Moreover, results show impressive PFAS destruction performance at a drinking water plant in the US Southeast.
Mo Laaroussi, Founder & CEO of E2metrix, said the following: “Current strategies for protecting our waterways from these forever chemicals involve expensive separation techniques – adsorption via granular activated carbon or ion exchange resins, concentration using reverse osmosis, or flotation via foam fractionation.
But none of these approaches destroy the PFAS.
Our patented ECOTHOR®-AOP electro-oxidation technology, already commercialized for other contaminants, enables low-cost, onsite destruction of PFAS, eliminating what would otherwise be a forever problem.
Stay tuned this fall for results on this, along with news on other projects, case studies and sales channels.”
