EGL Water’s vision to protect and preserve access to clean water is what drives our innovation efforts. Partnering with top research institutions such as Victoria University, we develop low-cost technologies to answer emerging water treatment issues across Australia and the world.

Victoria University EGL Water

Our research partner, Victoria University’s Institute for Sustainability and Innovation, has spent months testing the efficacy of the pioneering technology. Researchers have found an 87 percent reliable reduction in PFAS-contaminated water. This ground-breaking result signals the technology’s major potential for cost-effectively removing PFAS from the environment.

New technology for PFAS remediation

EGL Water is proud to announce research results of our latest technology developed for PFAS water treatment.

Our research partner, Victoria University’s Institute for Sustainability and Innovation, has spent months testing the efficacy of the pioneering technology. Researchers have found an 87 percent reliable reduction in PFAS-contaminated water. This ground-breaking result signals the technology’s major potential for cost-effectively removing PFAS from the environment.

Per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are toxic chemicals that have found their way into the natural environment, including Australia’s vital the water table; farmland and waterways. The leaching of PFAS contamination into the environment is a growing problem resulting from these chemicals being widely used for decades in the manufacture of household and industrial products. Until 2015, PFAS was also used in firefighting foam due to its heat-resistant properties. Specialised water treatment technology is urgently needed to eliminate PFAS from our waterways.

EGL Water’s unique patented technology is significantly more effective than other methods. Existing technologies use an absorption process to remove PFAS from a water stream, which requires a subsequent incineration process. By contrast, our technology actually destroys the PFAS, converting it to a non-toxic chemical.

After rigorous R&D and testing phases, EGL Water is now pleased to be commercialising the exclusive PFAS treatment technology.
