Towards an efficient method for removing PFAS from water

Today’s cyclodextrin is highlighting a wonderful and important achievement from Aalborg University by Mads Koustrup Jørgensen and Thorbjørn Terndrup Nielsen, who are combining cyclodextrin chemistry and membrane technology in a new filtration project. They hope to present an effective and economically sustainable method for removing PFAS from our drinking water within a few years.

“In short, by rinsing a membrane in a specific alcohol solution of cyclodextrins, we can make the cyclodextrins bind to the membrane surface, making it functional for PFAS absorption without the need for complex chemistry,” says Mads Koustrup Jørgensen.
