Europe’s PFAS problem: situation briefings by independent experts – 19 May & 2 June – Webinar
The European Environmental Bureau is pleased to invite you to a second series of webinars on PFAS.
The new Mark Ruffalo film Dark Waters puts highly fluorinated chemicals firmly back in the public spotlight, for good reason. Toxic PFAS pollution is now widespread, but the scene is dominated by vested interests seeking to maintain the status quo. With the EU set to announce the most wide-reaching reform of chemical safety laws in over a decade, including a PFAS action plan and ECHA restriction proposals, understanding this dense field is more crucial than ever. We have brought together four top independent researchers to explain the current state of knowledge for all professionals dealing with or interested in PFASs.
If you are unable to attend, please email email@example.com for recordings.
Next to this, EEB draws to your attention a short report on the status and uses of PFASs in the EU, published last year: “PFAS – avoid the street light effect“.
