Imagine a synthetic industrial chemical so pervasive it is found globally, so persistent it never breaks down, so insidious it is found in the water we drink, and so dangerous it can cause significant health problems.

These manmade “forever chemicals,” per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been used in industrial and consumer products since the 1940s. They are found in products like nonstick cookware, water-repellent clothing, stain resistant fabrics, carpets, cosmetics, and firefighting foams. They do not break down, are bioaccumulative, and found in the environment (air, water, soil) and living organisms (fish, wildlife, and even the human body).

Peer reviewed, scientific studies have shown how PFAS exposure can result in adverse health outcomes such as decreased fertility, developmental delays, increased cancer risk, obesity, reduced immune response, and hormone deregulation. PFAS are widespread and persistent and found in: 83% of American waterways sampled and the blood of up to 97% of Americans. There are 57,000 contaminated sites in the United States leaving over 133 million people exposed to PFAS through their water supplies.

These forever chemicals pose a daunting global threat as conventional methods have proven ineffective or too costly. Regulation, liability, and health concerns are driving implementation of new treatment systems to address PFAS. Our innovative approach is designed to eliminate toxic forever chemicals with cutting edge materials science in an inexpensive, environmentally friendly, and scalable system.

We invite you to join our mission to make the world a safer, healthier place.


The PFAS problem is complex, with widespread contamination of the environment and health impacts. While the dangers were known for decades, the full extent of the problem only recently became clear. In particular, concerns center upon drinking water contamination and exposure in the workplace and through consumer products.

PFAS have been largely unregulated for the past 75 years, but significant federal, state, and local regulations are emerging. In March 2023, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed the National Primary Drinking Water Regulation (NPDWR) to create legally enforceable Maximum Contaminant Levers (MCLs) of PFAS in drinking water. This regulation would require the monitoring of public water systems, notify consumers of PFAS levels, and require remediation when necessary. Since 2005, more than 6,000 PFAS related lawsuits have been filed and billions of dollars in settlements rewarded for the monitoring, cleanup, and supply of PFAS free water. In addition to the lack of regulation, additional barriers include high remediation costs, thousands of PFAS types, environmental impacts, and the lack of a scalable solution.

At Invicta Water, we believe we are the solution!


At Invicta Water, our technology removes and destroys PFAS in an economical, safe, and environmentally friendly manner that no other method or company can match. Our state-of-the-art catalytic crystals capture PFAS molecules and are combined with UV energy to catalytically destroy the PFAS. The PFAS molecules are destroyed in place resulting in significantly smaller sized systems, virtually no waste stream, and lower up-front capital and annual operating expenses.

What: Invicta Water extracts and destroys toxic PFAS (aka "forever chemicals") from global water supplies.

How: This staged system provides a continuous clean water flow while destroying the PFAS and eliminating the hazardous waste.

The 3 Stages:

1. Stripping – The incoming water is separated into two streams. A Waste Stream (10% of the total water volume) containing all of the PFAS is stripped from the water and sent to Stage 2 of the process. The rest of the PFAS free water (90% of the total water volume) is released into the Clean Stream.

2. Enrichment – The incoming Waste Stream is again separated into two streams - a Water Return Stream and an Enriched Waste Stream. The PFAS in the Waste Stream is concentrated to form the Enriched Waste Stream that reduces the contaminated water volume by another 90%. The Enriched Waste Stream is transferred to Stage 3 and the remaining water, now PFAS free, is returned to Stage 1.

3. Destruction – In the final stage, the PFAS molecules are destroyed, and the water is returned to Stage 2.

This graph demonstrates how quickly PFAS is destroyed using the Invicta Water process. At time zero, the PFAS concentration is at a maximum, and after time the concentration goes to zero.

business model

Invicta Water’s mission is to eliminate PFAS in water by providing solutions to municipal drinking water and wastewater systems, industrial facilities, ground and surface water remediation locations, and small facility and home use. Invicta Water solutions are easy to specify, implement, and operate; very cost effective; require a minimal footprint; and use minimal energy.

Invicta Water installs and maintains water systems designed to remove and destroy PFAS in an economical, safe, and environmentally friendly manner. Our modular solutions are designed to enable fast selection, purchase, and installation and are configurable to meet any water capacity demands and physical area requirements.

Invicta Water is targeting engagement areas:

  • Significantly impacted by high PFAS contamination levels
  • Under current or pending litigation
  • Requiring mandated remediation

Initial Product Lines:

  • Municipality wastewater and drinking water
  • Industrial and manufacturing waste streams

Product Roadmap:

  • Mobile remediation
  • In-home use (well water and point-of-use filters)


The US market opportunity for PFAS removal from water is emergent and in excess of $290 billion. The US generates approximately 34 billion gallons/day of wastewater and consumes another 30 billion gallons/day of drinking water, likely containing PFAS compounds. Industrial sites with wastewater permits release another 49 billion gallons/day. EPA studies of the PFAS issue determined tight limits are required. Starting with drinking water, they have proposed limits of 4 parts per trillion for four PFAS compounds. Additional regulations on publicly owned and industrial wastewater treatment systems are imminent.

Settlements from manufacturers, in the billions of dollars, are funding water treatment systems for some of the most contaminated locations with more lawsuits pending. Many communities, weighing the effects on health, are moving forward with their own funding.

"We are actively researching the use of boron nitride NanoBarbs for PFAS remediation. Preliminary results have shown that these NanoBarbs hold tremendous potential in this regard. We are currently engaged in incorporating NanoBarbs into porous membranes for the development of next-generation PFAS remediation technology. This technology is of great interest, and we are committed to advancing its development."

There has been significant progress on this development in the last couple of weeks. These filters are the types that we use every day in pitches and water bottles.

    Invicta Water is working with our partner TruSpin Nanomaterials Innovations to develop filter materials that can be used in PFAS Filters for consumers.

    Robert from TruSpin took the time to describe how Invicta Water and TruSpin are working together to get this done.

    What does it cost to have water free from toxic PFAS chemicals, to be safe from the risks of the diseases they cause?

    Using current technologies, the cost is very high, over $400 BILLION for the US alone, due to the large infrastructure requirements and the annual cost of hazardous waste transportation and destruction.

    Invicta’s technology provides a modular and scalable solution with on-site destruction, minimizing infrastructure and eliminating hazardous waste transport - making the total cost of PFAS free water a small fraction of current technology.
