EU Regulators Ramp Up PFAS Action for Drinking Water, Biosolids

18 Apr 2023  |  Episode #69  |  with Chloé Meyer

Bluefield’s water experts discuss the European Chemical Agency’s (ECHA) recent launch of a six-month evaluation to review a proposal for restricting the use of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The proposal, submitted by the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, is representative of public concerns that are escalating in the EU and applies to both the production and use of PFAS in products, including those that are imported into the European Union. The initiative signals the next step toward tighter regulatory enforcement of these contaminants of emerging concern on the continent. 

Out of Europe, Chloe Meyer joins Reese Tisdale talk about EU policies for PFAS and emerging challenges across the region.
