Successful Advancements for Removal of “Forever Chemicals” from Water

PORTLAND, Maine – May 29, 2024 – Earlier this week, ECT2’s parent company, Montrose Environmental Group, Inc. (“Montrose”) (NYSE: MEG) shared highlights from its presentation with 3M Company at the Bank of America 31st Annual Transportation, Airlines and Industrials Conference in New York.

ECT2’s Chief Innovation Officer, Steve Woodard, Ph.D., P.E., joined the panel with Montrose President and Chief Executive Officer, Vijay Manthripragada, and 3M’s Chief Technology Officer John Banovetz, Ph.D., to discuss “PFAS Panel: Advancing Technology for a Cleaner Tomorrow.”

Utilizing ECT2’s SORBIX™ RePURE technology, a regenerable ion exchange resin technology for the removal of PFAS from contaminated water, 3M’s systems are a sustainable and effective solution for treating these highly contaminated waters. Unlike other PFAS treatment systems, this process is capable of removing both long and short chain PFAS compounds.

“We have developed multiple technologies to remove [PFAS] from the environment, and 3M is leading the way,” said Dr. Steve Woodard. “We’re going to benefit a lot of industries, communities and government, but most importantly, the health and welfare of communities.”
