Yes, 4never™ is available to the private landfill and industrial waste management markets in the United States.

If there is interest in SAFF® as a solution for another market, please contact Allonnia, the exclusive North American distributor for EPOC Enviro’s SAFF®.
How does the 4never™ solution work?
4never™ integrates PFAS treatment technologies and services offered by its partner companies. Combined, they result in a local, scalable, closed-loop solution to remove and permanently destroy PFAS. It begins with a SAFF® unit provided and serviced by Crystal Clean. The SAFF® unit will separate the target PFAS contaminants from the leachate or wastewater and generate a hyper-concentrated PFAS waste stream. Crystal Clean destroys the PFAS hyper-concentrate using supercritical water oxidation, resulting in non-toxic byproducts of water, carbon dioxide, and salts. Crystal Clean is responsible for mobilizing and operating the SAFF® technology on-site, then transporting the PFAS hyper-concentrate to centralized facilities for destruction.
