About Onvector:

Onvector’s proprietary Plasma Vortex technology can reliably and cost-effectively break up PFAS molecules into harmless compounds and individual atoms. This is helping reduce contamination of our soil and groundwater, creating a more sustainable future. PFAS “forever chemicals” are molecules that contain a carbon-fluorine bond, one of the strongest known, making them hard to break down. Today, Onvector is solving some of the most difficult water problems impacting human health and safety by destroying hazardous contaminants in groundwater and soil.
