The American Chemistry Council (ACC) recently participated in the EPA’s National Leadership Summit to address per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Jessica Bowman, ACC senior director of global fluoro-chemistry, presented to attendees the historical and current uses of PFAS and expressed industry support for a process based on the best available science to determine, as appropriate, maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) and cleanup levels for PFOS, PFOA, and other legacy PFAS.
“ACC and its members support a process based on the best available science to determine, as appropriate, MCLs and cleanup levels for PFOS, PFOA and other legacy PFAS substances. We also support finalizing a significant new use rule to prohibit the import of products containing legacy PFAS substances,” said Bowman. “It is critical that regulators utilize sound science when establishing standards for both legacy substances and the new PFAS replacements.”
