Apul speaks to BDN about company working to remove PFAS

Onur Apul, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Maine, was interviewed by the Bangor Daily News for an article about ECT2 (Emerging Compounds Treatment Technologies), a Portland-based company conducting pioneering work in the removal of toxic per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), also known as forever chemicals. “As a Maine-based researcher it makes me proud to see Maine on the forefront of R&D in such a critical field. I work on fundamental aspects of PFAS remediation and think about sustainability, and ECT2 is working in the field to deploy novel ideas,” Apul said.
