★ PFAS Regulations: Polyfluoroalkyl Substances compounds are subject to increasing regulations, covering areas such as drinking water and wastewater.

★ PFAS Variety: There are over 4900 recognized PFAS compounds, but current regulations focus on six of them.

★ Detection Challenge: The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)‘s wastewater test can detect approximately 15,000 PFAS-related compounds, highlighting the scale of the challenge.

★ Collection Techniques: Existing collection techniques like activated carbon, ion exchange, and membranes can remove PFAS but don’t destroy it.

★ Aqueous Electrostatic Concentration Unit: This innovative technology captures PFAS onto membranes by exploiting their polarity, resulting in minimal waste generation compared to traditional methods.

★ Environmental Impact: The technology prevents PFAS from bioaccumulating and transforms it into inert salts, reducing its environmental impact.

★ PFAS in Consumer Products: PFAS compounds are found in various everyday products, including makeup, dental floss, and contact lenses.

★ Future Regulations: Upcoming rules will cover more than just where PFAS is found in water; they will also deal with how PFAS is used in making things and everyday products.

★ Cupridyne Clean: It’s dedicated to being the top provider of Odor Eliminator Products and systems, prioritizing excellence and trustworthiness in addressing Commercial Odor Control issues.
