EU proposes ban on 10,000 PFAS chemicals - What you need to know

We wanted to bring to your attention a recent proposal by the European Union (EU) to ban up to 10,000 PFAS chemicals, which are widely used in industrial and consumer products. The proposal is part of the EU's efforts to address the risks associated with these persistent and potentially harmful chemicals.

PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are a class of man-made chemicals that are found in a wide range of products, from non-stick cookware to firefighting foam. They are known for their persistence in the environment and their potential to accumulate in human and animal tissues.

The proposed ban would cover a wide range of PFAS chemicals, including those used in textiles, food packaging, and cosmetics. The ban would also apply to products imported into the EU.

Porlite emphasizes environmental protection from production to disposal.

The main material of Porlite membrane is made up of carbon and hydrogen molecules. It is burnable with very low environmental impact and meets the standards on environmentally friendly in terms of saving energy and non-toxic emission. After all, Porlite creates no harm to human bodies and the earth.

We will continue to monitor this issue and keep you updated on any new developments. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
