Michigan State University-Fraunhofer USA, Inc. Center for Coatings and Diamond Technologies (MSU-Fraunhofer) is developing a scalable treatment option for PFAS-contaminated wastewater that is currently ready for pilot-scale investigation.

Electrochemist and lead researcher on the project, Dr. Cory Rusinek, will discuss the method to use an electrochemical oxidation system that uses boron-doped diamond electrodes. The process breaks down the contaminants’ formidable molecular bonds, cleaning the water while systematically destroying the hazardous compounds.
