Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances in Food Packaging Alternatives Assessment
Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances in Food Packaging Alternatives Assessment (Number of pages: 218) (Publication Size: 3628KB)
|Author(s)||Washington State Department of Ecology|
|Description||Ecology's alternatives assessment (AA) fulfills the requirements of RCW 70A.222.070, which restricts the manufacture, distribution, and sale in Washington of “food packaging to which per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) chemicals have been intentionally added in any amount” if safer alternatives to PFAS in food packaging are identified.
Ecology, in partnership with the Washington State Department of Health, completed this alternatives assessment that:
· Evaluates less toxic chemicals and nonchemical alternatives to replace the use of PFAS.
· Follows the guidelines for alternatives assessments issued by the Interstate Chemicals Clearinghouse (IC2).
· Includes an evaluation of chemical hazards, exposure, performance, cost, and availability.
