Chemservice is co-organizator of a conference on ‘Fluoropolymers in wide PFAS restriction proposal’ by European Chemicals Agency (ECHA)
Chemservice, Gujarat Fluorochemicals Limited and pro-K organized a conference on ‘Fluoropolymers in wide PFAS restriction proposal’ by European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
Several Italian fluoropolymers processors and downstream users met in Sarnico to discuss on the proposal, its impacts to the society and engagement in the upcoming public consultation process. Fluoropolymers are safe and are of enormous importance for health, safety and functioning of the modern society.
Key messages from the conference:
– Impact of the proposed restriction on fluoropolymer industry
– Importance of actively contributing to the public consultation process
– Next steps and guidance to participate in public consultation process
Chemservice along with the entire fluoropolymer value chain will continue working towards the exemption of fluoropolymers from the PFAS restriction proposal.
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a large class of thousands of synthetic chemicals that are used throughout society. However, they are increasingly detected as environmental pollutants and some are linked to negative effects on human health.
