A UMaine professor is researching how to destroy ‘chemicals forever’

A University of Maine researcher and professor thinks he may have found a way to remove the “forever” from “forever chemicals.”

Over the next three to four years, Onur Apul, an assistant professor of environmental engineering, will investigate how to destroy forever chemicals, or PFASs, that accumulate in a common water filtration technology used by US municipalities.

Apul’s work will be boosted by a recently announced $250,000 grant from the National Science Foundation.
