Aclarity Closes $3.3 Million Seed Round To Deploy PFAS Destruction Technology, Eliminate Cancerous Chemicals From Water
A federal roadmap for addressing PFAS chemicals calls for more cleanup work in the United States. You might say a water treatment technology company called Aclarity is taking a different path: destroying the per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, aka PFAS, using a proprietary electrochemical process.
“This new, unique treatment method replaces standard PFAS disposal methods such as capturing for incineration, deep-well injection and sending to landfill,” the Massachusetts company says.
Aclarity’s work will be boosted after closing a $3.3 million seed financing round. This year, the company plans to double the size of its team to 13 employees, complete two long-term pilots at customer sites and develop a model for a 2023 pilot.
