Focus on: Alternatives assessment on PFAS chemicals in food packaging
Focus on: Alternatives assessment on PFAS chemicals in food packaging (Number of pages: 2) (Publication Size: 813KB)
|In 2018, the Washington State Legislature passed a law prohibiting the use of all per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) in plant fiber-based food packaging. Before the ban takes effect, Ecology must identify whether safer alternatives to PFAS are available and publish the findings in a report to the Legislature.
In order to determine whether safer alternatives to PFAS are available, Ecology is conducting an “alternatives assessment.” This is a formal process to identify, compare, and select safer alternatives to chemicals of concern and evaluate a chemical’s hazards, performance, and economic viability.
