Don't Move PFAS. Destroy It.

Learn how Battelle's PFAS Annihilator™ destruction technology – powered by supercritical water oxidation – destroys per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), prevents them from transferring elsewhere and doesn’t create harmful byproducts.

What's Inside

Battelle has adopted supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) for PFAS destruction. In bench-scale trials of more than 30 PFAS-contaminated sample types, PFAS Annihilator demonstrated more than 99.99% destruction of total PFAS on multiple occasions.

This white paper provides a glimpse into the science behind the technology, the various Annihilator systems we have available for use and some highlights of the data we've complied while running the system in our lab.

Destruction Using SCWO

SCWO is a promising solution for destruction of PFAS in contaminated soils, groundwater, wastewater and concentrated waste streams.

A Scalable Solution

It all started with our bench-scale test program about two years ago. Now, we have Annihilator systems available for deployment in the field.

Unique Benefits

Annihilator achieves near complete destruction of PFAS, regardless of carbon chain lengthy or structure. It also generates few-to-no unwanted byproducts.

A Look at The Data

With all the runs we’ve done with the bench-scale Annihilator unit, we’ve tested a variety of media and have lots of data.
