An inaccurate statement on this MSU website states, "Conventional treatments utilizing coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation and filtration will not remove PFAS." Researchers at Univ of Arizona + Rice University say, "not true". Univ of Arizona + Rice Univ used a nano-iron slurry that removed both PFAS + PFOA (see https://www.synthetic-metals.com/UnivArizona_PFOA-PFAS.pdf) in 2012. Our nanostructured iron based sorbent may not be conventional, but it deploys like a flocculant, has a BET surface area 17.5X greater than the slurry UofA + Rice used, and will remove PFAS + PFOA. Skeptical? Contact me via email, and I'll send you a jar testing (+/- 10 grams) for free, so you can test for yourself.

Hi:

Thank you for making us aware of this research. I'll see if we can clarify the article. All the best to your continued research on PFAS.
