The History of PFAS

Part 2: Curtain Call for Early PFAS Compound


PFAS continued to be widely used in the 1990s and early 2000s. But in the 2006, the US EPA invited the major leading companies producing PFAS to join a global stewardship program to achieve a 95% reduction of PFOA by 2010, and then a complete phase out by 2015.

Take a look at this timeline below, which is part two of a 5-part PFAS series with Environmental Research and Education Foundation (EREF).
