Why the focus on PFAS?

PFAS is a blanket term used to describe Poly- and Per- fluoroalkyl substances. There are currently around 10,000 substances in existence that fit this description, with potentially more variants still yet to be produced. Some are already known to be harmful to human and animal health and the environment (such as PFOA and PFOS), and these specific PFAS are already controlled under legal restrictions. But in February 2023, The European Chemical Agency (ECHA) published a regulatory proposal to further restrict the manufacture, placing on the market, and use of all PFAS within the EU.
