Since 2016, NuQuatic Advanced Water Technologies has developed and deployed at scale its innovative platform to remediate excess nutrients to unprecedented low levels. Born out of a mission to create a better world through innovation, NuQuatic has continued focused research and development into the treatment of recalcitrant water contaminants utilizing its core technology platforms. Today, NuQuatic Advanced Water Technologies announces ADVANTAGE™, a novel new technology for the collection, concentration, and destruction of PFAS discovered in the Earth’s drinking, industrial and source waters.
Polyfluorinated compounds, synthetically manufactured chemicals, collectively referred to as PFAS, the so called “forever chemicals” have recently been elevated to hazardous status, even at extremely low concentrations. PFAS originated with the development of nonstick cooking utensils, firefighting foams and dozens of other products and now have been found in more than 60,000 sites in the United States alone. Effective, economically viable PFAS removal and destruction technologies have been unavailable until now. NuQuatic’s ADVANTAGE™ process presents a first to market effective, scalable, sustainable, and affordable solution for the removal and destruction of PFAS.
