Webinar: PFAS substitution in textile supply chains
On September 2, 2022, a digital seminar was held to launch the "PFAS Substitution Guide for Textile Supply Chains" tool and to communicate about activities and lessons learned from the textile case in the POPFREE project.
Below you can see all the presentations from the webinar and download the guide and presentations in PDF format. All presentations are in English.
The company perspective in phasing out PFAS has been presented by partners in POPFREE step 3. There are also other companies that have phased out, or are actively working to phase out PFAS, and there are several other manufacturers of PFAS-free solutions on the market.
