AECOM and Aquatech Partner for PFAS Destruction Using DE-FLUORO™ Technology

AECOM, renowned for its expertise in infrastructure consulting, and Aquatech, a global leader in water and process technology, have joined forces to expedite the deployment of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) destruction technology. This collaboration leverages AECOM’s top-ranked water and environmental practice and innovative DE-FLUORO™ PFAS destruction technology with Aquatech’s industry-leading electrochemical technology expertise and track record of scaling comprehensive technology solutions and services. This partnership aims to accelerate DE-FLUORO as a prominent PFAS destruction solution.

Frank Sweet, CEO of AECOM’s global Environment business, highlighted the significance of the agreement in advancing DE-FLUORO PFAS destruction technology. He emphasized the capability provided by Aquatech to offer end-to-end commercialization services, from initial evaluation to on-site treatment programs. This collaboration strengthens AECOM’s PFAS practice and enhances its ability to address clients’ complex contamination challenges.

DE-FLUORO, a patented electrochemical oxidation technology developed over six years, has demonstrated its effectiveness in destroying PFAS across various waste streams in the United States, Australia, and Europe. It has been successfully deployed in diverse industry sectors, achieving environmentally friendly PFAS destruction.

Beverley Stinson, CEO of AECOM’s global Water business, underscored the agreement’s potential to position DE-FLUORO as a preferred solution, providing communities worldwide with access to safe, cost-effective, and sustainable PFAS destruction technologies.

The collaboration aims to tackle challenging applications, including aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) clean-outs, PFAS-impacted rinse water, ion exchange resin still bottom waste, reverse osmosis brine, separated and concentrated industrial and municipal waste streams, and landfill leachate.

C Ravi, President and CTO of Aquatech, emphasized the company’s ability to deliver comprehensive PFAS management and destruction solutions tailored to customer needs. This includes separation, concentration, and destruction, supported by treatability studies, analytical support, and onsite operation and maintenance services. The agreement is expected to accelerate technology adoption and provide essential, economically viable services to address the urgent need for safe and reliable PFAS destruction.
