CEB Partners with BioLargo to Remove Chemicals from Drinking Water
The Center for Environmental Biotechnology (CEB) has worked with industry partner BioLargo Engineering to demonstrate the effectiveness of a groundbreaking technology that removes harmful chemicals from drinking water. PFAS, or "forever chemicals," have historically been used in a variety of products, including food packaging, nonstick cookware, stain- and water-repellent fabrics, and are prevalent in our ground and drinking water.
