Aclarity Recognized by Frost & Sullivan for PFAS Company of the Year Award

Mansfield, MA, December 13, 2023 – Aclarity, the leading PFAS “forever chemicals” destruction company, has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan as the 2023 Company of the Year, and was  identified as best-in-class in the North American per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) substances  treatment industry.

Frost & Sullivan applies a rigorous analytical process to evaluate multiple nominees for each  award category before determining the final award recipient. The process assesses best  practices criteria across two dimensions for each nominated company: visionary innovation and  performance and customer impact. The announcement comes on the heels of a $16 million Series A fundraising earlier this year.

“Unlike the competitive methods for handling PFAS in wastewaters by merely transferring the  chemicals within our environment, Aclarity’s solutions have a one-of-its-kind electrochemical  oxidation system that destroys PFAS contaminants, ammonia, and biochemical oxygen demand  with incredibly low energy at 5 kW-hr/m3,” said Victoria Courtade, Frost & Sullivan industry  analyst.

Aclarity excels in many of the North American PFAS treatment space criteria, leading to the  company being recognized with this award. It leads the market by providing PFAS treatment  solutions that enable industrial facilities and landfills to eliminate PFAS efficiently and safely.

Specifically, the company’s industry-leading Octa™ product enables customers to destroy  PFAS contaminants and cost-effectively reduce downstream risk. Aclarity works closely with its clients during the pre- and post-purchase journey and provides a full Destruction as a Service™ offering —this covers everything from selecting the optimal support treatment processes to  providing full operations and customer support to manage their PFAS waste effectively.

“This award is a well-deserved recognition for Aclarity. Having Aclarity as a portfolio company  reflects our commitment to supporting transformative solutions that address PFAS challenges,  and we look forward to supporting Aclarity’s continued success in shaping the future of waste  management,” said Ginger Rothrock, Ph.D., Senior Director at HG Ventures.

Frost & Sullivan will also highlight Mullen with an in-depth fireside chat focused on the  groundbreaking work of Aclarity. The fireside chat will feature a highlight reel of  Aclarity’s accomplishments this year. Earlier this year, Aclarity was also recognized as  the winner of the Urban Water Challenge for its ability to effectively and efficiently  destroy PFAS forever, along with being an honoree for the 2023 Bostinno Fire Awards.

About Aclarity Inc. 

Aclarity is revolutionizing the elimination of persistent and hazardous “forever chemicals” known  as PFAS, which accumulate in humans, animals and persist indefinitely in our environment.  Until now, the prevailing method of remediating PFAS has involved a perilous cycle of extraction  and disposal, either by returning the extracted PFAS to landfills or by incinerating it and emitting  aerosols into the atmosphere. Aclarity’s technology employs electricity to sever the carbon and  fluorine bonds that give PFAS compounds their durability, thus putting an end to the perpetual  PFAS contamination cycle and destroying PFAS forever.

Currents Launches Marketplace to Support OEMs and Maximize Second-Life Battery Repurposing

PORTLAND, Ore.Dec. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Currents has officially launched their marketplace with battery inventory eligible for a second-life (2L). One of the first users of the platform is Nissan North America who will provide battery inventory with transparent pricing and state-of-health information.

Currents, a business-to-business marketplace designed for stakeholders throughout the end-of-life (EoL) EV battery supply chain, is a facilitation platform that provides buyers with transparency into inventory, pricing, and state-of-health (SOH) while extending the lives of retired EV batteries, paving the way for a sustainable, renewable future powered by 2L batteries. The platform drives value for buyers by solving pain points around sourcing, while enabling suppliers to scale their operations to the largest available demand pool, fulfilling a real gap in the industry.

This closed-loop model extends the life of valuable battery assets and reduces greenhouse gas emissions created by virgin material production. Currents provides the channel and solution for the EoL lithium supply chain challenged from the growing demand for EV batteries. Maximizing the effective life of every battery is of the utmost importance to strengthen our energy independence, unlock the value of renewables, and bolster domestic supply chains.

“We’re thrilled to go to market with Nissan’s inventory and provide approved buyers with the best available second-life inventory at the fairest, most transparent pricing based on state-of-health,” said Anthony Garbarino, CEO of Currents. “Together with Nissan, we can maximize battery lifecycle value and provide second-life buyers with a single, trustworthy destination to solve their demand needs. Our goal is for integrators to spend less time sourcing and more time scaling.”

“Currents is at the forefront of tackling the demand for sustainable energy solutions and supply chain circularity with their platform,” said Nick Arnold, Principal at HG Ventures.” All OEMs are grappling with the need for end-of-life strategies for EV batteries, which is why we invested in Currents, and it is exciting that Nissan is leading the way in this field.”

Along with Nissan, OEMs, and other industry participants, Currents is developing a first-of-its-kind 2L battery e-commerce platform that will enhance visibility of available EV batteries across North America for stakeholders throughout the EoL supply chain.
