ChemSec assists businesses map PFAS hotspots

The EU's plans to outlaw PFAS will have a profound effect on businesses all across the world. Probably even more than anticipated, given that many producers don't know whether or not their product line contains PFAS chemicals. The PFAS Guide, a new online tool from ChemSec, aids in resolving this issue.

The PFAS Handbook, which aids firms in looking into the usage of persistent chemicals in their operations, is now available thanks to ChemSec. The PFAS Guide's searchable database which reveals many PFAS applications and functions is its key feature, but the online tool also offers advice on other facets of the phase-out process, from regulation and investigation to testing and supply chain communication.

Dr. Anna Lennquist, Project Leader for the PFAS Guide, said that for a long time, they've worked to promote businesses that use chemical alternatives, and in recent years, they've put together a group of businesses that are focused on the PFAS problem. The discussions with them made it clear to them that a major problem is recognizing if and where in your firm you may have PFAS.

A significant proposal to limit PFAS in the EU was released a few weeks ago. The proposal's five supporting EU member states put forth a wide limitation proposal that amply demonstrates the need for the sector to use all available resources to gradually phase out all PFAS chemicals. Any company will find the PFAS Handbook from ChemSec to be a great resource.

At the same time, other stakeholders are also becoming more determined to get rid of "forever chemicals." For instance, over a hundred businesses have banded together to promote the banning of PFAS.
