Environmental guideline changes in recent years included the adoption of the 2010/2015 PFOA Stewardship Program, a global partnership between the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the leading companies in the per and polyfluoroalkyl substances industry. This program was based on voluntary goals to eliminate perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and precursor compounds from facility emissions and product content.


During this time, environmental regulations in Europe and the UK were also revised to add perfluoro-octanoic acid (PFOA) and/or PFOA-related compounds to its persistent organic pollutants (POPs) list in both chemical products and articles, as well as restrict the use of PFOA and its related compounds to a limited range of applications within the ratifying countries. In addition, specific limits on PFOA, its salts and PFOA-related compounds were established:

 

  • PFOA and its salts: 25ppb
  • PFOA related compounds: 1000ppb
  • European Commission Delegated Regulation 2020/784 and its corrigendum, and IEC62474

 

Our Versapor RC Membranes 

 

Versapor RC membranes as designed, are not known to contain PFOA, its salts and PFOA-related compounds at levels in excess of the established limits.
