Resources For PFAS Destruction

Get the latest news on PFAS, regulations, company updates, products, latest projects & more.

As more and more regulations come into effect, PFAS is moving further up the agenda for those working in waste management. Operators and owners need to understand their options before it is too late.

Immerse yourself in Aclarity's inspiring journey of innovation and environmental stewardship from a B2C company to a leader in PFAS destruction with this podcast from (Don't) Waste Water. Antoine Walter talks with CEO Julie Bliss Mullen about the challenges Aclarity has encountered and the groundbreaking technology developed to combat PFAS contamination.

Sit down with Julie Bliss Mullen, CEO at Aclarity, in this Future Engineering Club podcast episode. Forever Chemicals have taken over the world and most of your everyday items contain the chemical compound now known to be carcinogenic. The issue is complex but the answer is simple: We must eliminate the use of PFAS and remove it from our environment.

Companies are seeking technologies to destroy PFAS compounds, known as "forever chemicals," to comply with regulations and reduce liability risks. Emerging techniques like electrochemical oxidation, supercritical water oxidation, and other innovative methods can effectively break down PFAS, offering a cost-effective solution to prevent them from entering drinking water.

Aclarity, the leading PFAS “forever chemicals” destruction  company, has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan as the 2023 Company of the Year, and was  identified as best-in-class in the North American per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) substances  treatment industry.

In this podcast episode of Liquid Assets, Ravi Kurani interviews Julie Bliss Mullen, founder of Aclarity, a startup addressing the global threat of PFAS chemicals. Julie discusses her transition from PFAS research to entrepreneurship, highlighting Aclarity's innovative electrochemical systems that aim to destroy PFAS contamination. The episode explores the urgent PFAS crisis, evolving regulations, and the potential for sustainable technologies, offering a comprehensive view of innovative solutions and business models in water purification.

Aclarity has secured a substantial financial milestone that promises to reshape the landscape of the industry, and Pulse 2.0's spotlight on this funding round. Dive into this exclusive coverage to unveil the financial dynamics and future prospects that make Aclarity's Series A funding a compelling narrative in the evolving PFAS sector.

It's generations too late to keep toxic PFAS out of the environment. A clutch of startups, including Aclarity, are developing methods for eliminating these ‘forever chemicals’.

We're thrilled to share the exciting news that Aclarity has successfully raised $15.9 million in its Series A funding round. The round was led by Aqualateral, with participation from several notable investors, including HG Ventures, Bidra Innovation Ventures, Nor’easter Ventures, MassVentures, and Burnt Island Ventures.

Nothing Lasts Forever

The characteristic of being a nearly unbreakable bond is what makes PFAS useful in such a wide variety of applications— it’s also why these chemicals are a slow-brewing environmental disaster. But nothing really lasts forever. Julie Bliss Mullen uses electrochemistry to sever the nearly unbreakable bond in PFAS forever chemicals. 

Aclarity Makes PFAS a Problem of The Past

Since winning the 2022 Urban Water Challenge, new federal and state regulation around PFAS is providing a tailwind to Aclarity’s work. More than 6 states had PFAS regulation go into effect in 2023, including a first-in-the-nation PFAS ban in Maine, bans on use in personal care and food packaging, and new labeling requirements. Additionally, the US EPA lowered its safe threshold levels for PFAS in drinking water and is exploring new effluent limitation guidelines and pretreatment standards for landfill leachate to combat PFAS contamination.

PFAS Destruction Pilot Shows Promising Results

Existing methods for managing PFAS in landfill leachate merely transfer the chemicals within our environment," adds Mullen. "By proving scalability and leading unit economics, our customers now have a feasible solution to destroy PFAS forever, reducing environmental impact, liability, costs and operations while increasing capacity and public health.

Aclarity Destroys PFAS Chemicals Forever in Full-Scale Pilot

Aclarity, a leading PFAS destruction technology company, announced today that it has successfully destroyed PFAS chemicals at a customer’s site, at volume, in landfill leachate, a primary source of PFAS contamination in the environment.
