Media feature Apul research about destroying forever chemicals

The Bangor Daily News, the Courier-Gazette, WFVX (Fox22/Channel 7 in Bangor) and WABI (Channel 5 in Bangor) featured the research of Onur Apul, an assistant professor of environmental engineering. Apul will investigate how to destroy the forever chemicals, or PFAS, that accumulate in a common water filtration technology, granular-activated carbons. Apul’s work will be funded by a recently announced $250,000 grant from the National Science Foundation. WCSH in Portland also reported this research award.
