Montrose Environmental Group Leadership, 3M Chief Technology Officer Discuss Successful Advancements for Removal of “Forever Chemicals” from Water

Share

Montrose Environmental Group, Inc. (“Montrose”) (NYSE: MEG) today shared highlights from its presentation with 3M Company at the Bank of America 31st Annual Transportation, Airlines and Industrials Conference in New York. Montrose President and Chief Executive Officer, Vijay Manthripragada, and Montrose Chief Innovation Officer, Steve Woodard, Ph.D., joined 3M’s Chief Technology Officer John Banovetz, Ph.D., for a panel titled, “PFAS Panel: Advancing Technology for a Cleaner Tomorrow.”

During the panel, Montrose and 3M discussed how both companies are innovating to remove PFAS compounds from complex water sources at 3M’s chemical manufacturing sites at an unprecedented scale, and the intersection of sustainability including through the use of Montrose’s proprietary ion exchange technology.

“Our company is based on innovation and science, and therefore we’re looking for partners in the same vein,” said 3M’s Dr. Banovetz. “We were quickly able to find a partner in Montrose and have been very thankful for their partnership and helping us achieve our sustainability goals, particularly, our water quality goal.”

“We work with many Fortune 500 companies. John and the 3M leadership team are among the most sustainability-oriented leaders we’ve had the pleasure of working with,” said Mr. Manthripragada. “When the Montrose and 3M teams were thinking about how to [remove PFAS from water], sustainability mattered. The byproduct of that [collaborative] innovation and technology development is a solution that delivers a lot less waste, uses a lot less filtration media, has a smaller footprint which is arguably safer for workers, and uses less energy.”

Montrose’s patented regenerative solution features small plastic beads with special physical properties that give them a high affinity for PFAS and the ability to remove the compounds from water. Instead of discarding and replacing the beads once used, they can be washed and reused. Further, Montrose has developed technology to clean the spent regenerative solution using distillation and super-loading, allowing for its continued reuse. Pairing the resin treatment technology with the regenerative solution, provides a sustainable PFAS treatment system that is effective in removing PFAS from the environment.

Dr. Woodard noted that the systems developed for 3M through the collaboration have also been deployed globally and are benefiting communities as far away as Australia.

“We have developed multiple technologies to remove them from the environment, and 3M is leading the way,” Woodard said. “We're going to benefit a lot of industries, communities and governments, but most importantly, the health and welfare of communities.”

INTRESO Highlights Sustainable Alternatives as EU Considers a Ban on Sulfuryl Fluoride20.6.2024 08:00:00 CEST | Press release

International Treatment Solutions (INTRESO) Group has written to the EU Commission’s Standing Committee on Biocidal Products to highlight the availability of safe, effective and environmentally sustainable alternatives to sulfuryl fluoride, ahead of a 21 June meeting which will consider a ban of the chemical for the preservation treatment of wood [PT8], and as an insecticide and acaricide for the control of insects and arachnids [PT18]. On 21 June, representatives from EU Member States will vote on a proposal to ban the use of sulfuryl fluoride, an extremely harmful synthetic greenhouse gas with a global warming potential more than 4500 times that of carbon dioxide, for these fumigation purposes. In what amounts to an effective ban, the EU is considering withdrawing approvals for the continued biocidal use of sulfuryl fluoride, due to a lack of data on the potential risks to human health posed by the chemical. INTRESO Group produces BLUEFUME™, a highly effective and environmentally sus
