EPA is hosting a Workshop on Managing Perfluorinated Chemicals and Transitioning to Safer Alternatives Feb. 12-13.

According to a workshop announcement, it “will explore opportunities for managing and making a global transition from PFOS, PFOA, PFOS and PFOA precursors, and related higher homologue chemicals.” Scheduled sessions include: What are companies doing to help reduce exposure to PFCs; and What alternatives are available? What are their health and environmental profiles? When will they be ready for the market? How much do they cost? What are the drawbacks? What are some areas where countries could cooperate?
