Our 6 focus areas in POPFREE

The overall goal of POPFREE is to create a transition to PFAS free alternatives in sectors that currently use PFAS. We have identified six areas that we will focus on.

The challenges and efforts required to phase out PFASs vary between different industrial sectors and between the different focus areas. The challenges that need to be resolved to replace PFASs vary, and may include:

• Incorrect function.
• Need for new criteria and test methods.
• Low awareness in industry and / or consumers about existing alternatives.
• No data on the health and environmental impact of new alternatives.
