Proposed Implementation

The proposed end-users of our project would be civil engineers, water treatment facilities, waste facilities, and environmental cleanup kits. We envision others using our project through integration with current water treatment facilities to avoid needing new systems while still cleaning up the environment. D.R.O.P. could be implemented in the real world, to 1) determine if PFCs are present and 2) degrade them. Compared to current technologies, biologically detecting and degrading PFAS contaminates could create an effective and less expensive solution. By decreasing the cost associated with the cleanup of environmental contamination, it enables a more thorough and global approach to rehabilitating affected areas. The challenges that need to be considered involve the creation of an approved process of biologically changed organisms to the environment and already existing processes.
