Maine Monitor interviews MacRae about PFAS elimination technologies for op-ed

The Maine Monitor spoke with Jean MacRae, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Maine, for an opinion piece about reimagining the creation and reuse of material goods in order to phase out PFAS, or “forever chemicals.” Maine has put itself at the forefront of researching how to break down these chemicals fully, a process for which the technology does not yet exist, according to the report. MacRae, however, says “In the long run, it’s going to be good for Maine to have done this [work].” The Maine Monitor also highlighted PFAS research being conducted at UMaine.
