Fluorinated fire-fighting foam to be banned soon. What’s the alternative?
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), including PFOA, are a group of fluorinated substances that are able to withstand very high temperatures. The ideal property for use in fire-fighting foam. PFOA enables the foam to form a layer over a fire, which is primarily constituted of liquid or melted solid.
However, studies show that PFAS are poisonous even in very low concentrations. The Belgian government and the European Union have therefore imposed rules to ensure workplaces are safe by restricting their use.
We examine this issue in more depth during our study day.
