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, visited the MSU Bioeconomy Institute on November 28 and provided an overview of 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.
