Derived from corn, our HACP adsorbents use a renewable resource to remove pollutants from the environment.
Our adsorbents are ustainably made from corn-based sugar molecules called “cyclodextrins,” and selectively target micropollutants at concentrations below one part per billion. Unlike activated carbon (AC), our adsorbents resists fouling by inert materials in water, and offer instant uptake capability with low dosage requirements. These unique features make CycloPure adsorbents ideally suited for use in industrial, municipal, and consumer flow-through water treatment systems that serve businesses, communities and households.
The novelty of adsorbent technology is to organize naturally “sticky” cyclodextrins into highly adsorbent networks, with porous, crosslinked pathways through which thousands of micropollutants are adsorbed within 0.78 nanometer cyclodextrin cups. The crosslinked pathways provide additional affinity for more rapid attraction of pollutants, and can be tuned to target specific contaminants through modification of the monomer to have greater association with the chemical properties of the contaminant.
Organic micropollutants such as industrial chemicals, pesticides, and pharmaceuticals contaminate much of the world's drinking water. At CycloPure, we used advanced material sciences to develop our line of powerful, high-affinity cyclodextrin polymer (HACP) adsorbents that safely and rapidly remove thousands of hazardous micropollutants from water.
