Deveron passes 2-stage Pilot and Onboards New PFAS Enterprise Customer

Deveron announces the onboarding of a new enterprise contract with a prominent player in Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (“PFAS”) remediation in water. PFAS are synthetic chemicals that have garnered significant attention due to their widespread use and potential environmental and health concerns.

After completing a 2-stage pilot program, during which the client sent calibrated samples to ensure that Deveron’s subsidiary, A&L Laboratories Canada, met specific measurement comparison goals, the Company and the client have agreed to utilize A&L for its internal testing needs. This will assess the success of their PFAS water removal technology.

PFAS have found use in a wide range of industrial and consumer products due to their unique properties, including oil and water repellency, heat resistance, and low surface tension. Common applications include non-stick cookware, water-repellent outdoor gear, food packaging (e.g., fast-food wrappers), and firefighting foam. One of the most significant concerns with PFAS is their persistence in the environment; these chemicals do not easily break down and can accumulate in soil, water, and living organisms over time. Noteworthy states where PFAS testing, and regulation have commenced include Michigan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Minnesota, New York, Vermont, California, Maine, and New Hampshire.

“PFAS testing presents a very exciting opportunity for Deveron,” commented David MacMillan, Deveron’s President, and CEO. “A&L’s history of both scientific quality and timely turnaround of agricultural soil samples will provide the Company with advantages as it enters this new and growing market. With increasing federal regulation and growing societal concern, we see this as a great opportunity to become a leader in the market and support our community.”
