Call for Evidence for PFAS in firefighting foams restriction proposal


Fidra's response to a Call for Evidence supporting a restriction on PFAS use in firefighting foams.

PFAS in firefighting foams are a significant source of environmental contamination. Recent research indicates that firefighting foams may be among the top contributors to PFAS contamination in soil, severely harming soil health and fertility. Once in the environment, PFAS can spread rapidly and accumulate in groundwater, crops, and living organisms, building to potentially harmful concentration levels.

Fidra strongly supports a restriction on PFAS use in firefighting foams.
