Webinar: Towards PFAS-free kitchenware
On January 20, 2022, the project POPFREE Industry arranged the webinar "Towards PFAS-free kitchenware". The purpose was to initiate a dialogue in the supply chain, raise the level of knowledge about PFAS chemicals and the ongoing development of new PFAS regulation within EU, and to share experiences from companies that have or are working with phasing out PFAS.
Below you can see all parts of the webinar and download presentations in PDF format.
