PFA’s and Chrom(VI) - Stay Ahead of EU Regulations and get 100.000 € support!

The EU is setting new standards by restricting PFAs and Chrom(VI) in products further. Don’t just comply — lead the change with KETMarket and the Convert2Green Innovation Network.

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAs) are widely used in many everyday products such as cookware (e.g. non-stick coatings on pots and pans), food packaging, textiles, cosmetics and electronics. PFAs contaminate waters and soil and do not degrade at all for a long time. Further, PFAs are suspicious to be carciogenic, to impact the immune system and to cause fertility issues both at women and men. Chrom(VI) may be found in small quantities wherever Chrom is used, e.g. in certain lacquers, galvanic coatings, textile dyes, or tanned leather. Chrom(VI) is proven to be carciogenic, and to cause damage to skin, kidney and liver.
