  • SRP-Funded Small Business Gears Up to Hit the Shelves
    SRP News Page - April 2019
    CycloPure, Inc., a small business funded by the Superfund Research Program (SRP), has announced a major advance in its cost-effective water filtration technology called DEXSORB. Its new product, DEXSORB+, works to rapidly remove per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from contaminated water supplies. PFAS, which have been used in consumer products and aqueous film-forming foams at airports, military installations, and firefighting training sites, do not break down and can accumulate in the environment.
  • CycloPure Chemist Wins Guggenheim Fellowship
    SRP News Page - August 2018
    William Dichtel, Ph.D., co-founder of the NIEHS-funded small business CycloPure, was recently awarded a prestigious 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship for his ongoing work in polymer chemistry. CycloPure's NIEHS grant, administered by the Superfund Research Program, focuses on developing new high-affinity polymers derived from corn to remove per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) from water.
