WASHINGTON (August 7, 2019) – FluoroCouncil, which represents leading manufacturers of FluoroTechnologies, unveiled additional website features that include new resources to educate and inform interested stakeholders about these important chemistries.
“With the ongoing discussions surrounding the safety and uses of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), we continue to work with policymakers and scientific experts to find practical solutions that uphold our commitments to stewardship, while preserving the safe and reliable function of the derivative products that are vital to many industries and consumers alike,” said Jessica Bowman, executive director of the FluoroCouncil.
“Our website is a key tool that helps us share information as part of the ongoing engagement with these stakeholders, so the time is right to enhance its content, features, and functionality.”
FluoroTechnologies, also known as today’s per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), represent a diverse collection of classes of chemistries characterized by the strong bond between fluorine and carbon. FluoroCouncil’s updated website offers information on some of the different types of PFAS, their scientific and performance characteristics, and the many roles they play in products that enable modern life. From state-of-the-art medical devices to smart phones and tablets to bullet proof vests, FluoroTechnologies play an important role in modern life.
Bowman continued, “While the FluoroCouncil’s website is already a hub for information on current uses of PFAS,
new features allow us to share even more information about our commitment to the responsible manufacture and use of FluoroTechnologies, which play a critical and irreplaceable role in modern society.”
