    Portal on Per and Poly Fluorinated Chemicals

    Per- and poly-fluorinated alkyl substances (PFASs) are substances that have many manufacturing and industrial applications because they impart useful properties (fire resistance and oil, stain, grease and water repellency). Some of the properties are associated with environmental and human health concerns. To support a global transition towards safer alternatives, this Portal facilitates the exchange of information.
