Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances Draft Chemical Action Plan
Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances Draft Chemical Action Plan (Number of pages: 479) (Publication Size: 8523KB)
|Author(s)||Washington State Department of Ecology|
|Description||Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a family of more than 4,700 synthetic organic chemicals. PFAS can withstand high temperatures and survive highly corrosive environments. They are used in the manufacture of coatings, surface treatments, and specialty chemicals in cookware, carpets, food packaging, clothing, cosmetics, and other common consumer products.
A Chemical Action Plan (CAP) identifies, characterizes, and evaluates uses and releases of a specific Persistent Bioaccumulative Toxin (PBT), a group of PBTs, or metals of concern, and recommends actions to protect human health or the environment.
