Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) will evaluate the efficacy of AirSCWO's destruction of PFAS waste as the DoD considers innovative remediation solutions for national military facilities.
DURHAM, NC / ACCESSWIRE / February 8, 2023 / 374Water (NASDAQ:SCWO), a social impact, cleantech company, today announced it has partnered with WSP, a globally-recognized professional services firm, to demonstrate the efficacy of the AirSCWOTM 6 as a scalable, mobile and field-ready solution for destruction of per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) at U.S. Air Force bases.
This work will be performed under an AFCEC Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) contract awarded to WSP by the Air Force Civil Engineer Center's (AFCEC) Environmental Directorate. The AFCEC BAA contract comes at a time when the Department of Defense (DoD) is actively seeking solutions for PFAS remediation, and the awarded project will be the first field-scale case study to use SCWO technology to destroy the PFAS-laden spent media generated from the groundwater pump and treat remediation systems.
"WSP is excited to partner with 374Water on this AFCEC BAA contract. The demonstration of AirSCWO's scalable, mobile and field-ready capabilities has far-reaching implications for clean and efficient destruction of PFAS," said WSP principal investigator, Dr. Dora Chiang. "A mobile PFAS destruction solution will deliver significant savings by eliminating the costs of storage, shipping and hazardous waste fill, while removing the threats these substances pose to service personnel and contractors, their families and surrounding communities," said Howard Teicher, Senior Director, Government Affairs at 374Water.
