CWA Innovator Secures $1.3M in Funding for PFAS Remediation

January 19, 2024

In a significant milestone for environmental sustainability and public health, CoreWater Technologies, Inc., an innovator in the Cleveland Water Alliance (CWA) network, has successfully secured $1.3 million in funding. This achievement is a testament to the groundbreaking work being done in the realm of PFAS remediation, a critical challenge in today's world.

CoreWater Technologies' Groundbreaking Work

CoreWater Technologies, an innovator in sustainable water treatment solutions, has been at the forefront of developing technology to combat the pervasive threat of PFAS, also known as "forever chemicals," in our water sources. Their recent accomplishment in securing substantial funding reflects the urgency and importance of their mission. This financial boost will significantly accelerate the development and deployment of their innovative PFAS remediation technology.

Understanding PFAS

PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are a group of man-made chemicals found in various everyday products. These chemicals are notoriously durable, resisting natural degradation processes, which leads to their prolonged presence in the environment and potential adverse health effects on humans and wildlife. PFAS contamination in water sources is a growing concern, with more than 200 million people in the U.S. estimated to be drinking water affected by these chemicals.

The Role of CWA in Supporting Innovations

Cleveland Water Alliance is committed to supporting the evolution of innovative technologies like CoreWater's. By offering water accelerator testbeds, CWA has provided companies with the unique opportunity to deploy and refine their technology in real-world scenarios. This support goes beyond mere resource allocation; it encompasses mentorship, networking opportunities, prototyping, and a platform for innovators to connect with stakeholders, industry leaders, and end-users.

Impact of the Funding

This recent infusion of capital marks a significant step forward for CoreWater Technologies. With these funds, the company plans to expand its field-testing initiatives, scale up production, and further enhance its proprietary technology. This advancement is not just a win for CoreWater but a victory for the broader community, as it brings us closer to solving the challenge of PFAS contamination in our water sources.

Looking Forward

The success of CoreWater Technologies is a shining example of how a network of support can propel innovators to achieve remarkable feats. As CoreWater continues to develop and deploy its groundbreaking technology, CWA remains committed to its mission of nurturing innovations that tackle real-world water challenges. This collaboration underlines our dedication to ensuring that the water we rely on is safe, clean, and sustainable for future generations.
