Moving to safer alternatives:
what are the innovation
needs?
Martijn Beekman
Valentina Bertato
European Commission
• Initially started with regulatory pressure
• PFOS restriction
• PFOA restriction
• Authorities started to work on PFAS alternatives
• Substance evaluation
• Harmonised classification
• SVHC identification
• Restriction
• CSS: group approach
• Papers from academia
• Pollution cases/ public awareness
• Group restrictions
2
PFAS substitution in the EU: the history
Regrettable substitution moving
away from C8 chemistry
Moving towards substitution of all PFAS
Substitution activities are well advanced for:
• Fire-fighting foams
• Consumer articles
• Outdoor clothing and other textile applications
• Cookware
• Food and other packaging
• Mixtures (ski wax, cosmetics, waterproofing
sprays)
Substitution activities initiated,
for example (non-exhaustive):
• Applications of F-gases
• Solar panels
• Batteries
• Membranes
3
How is PFAS substitution progressing in EU?
Online database
https://zeropm.eu/alternative-assessment-database/
PFAS restriction is the main source of information
For each use category:
• List of applications
• List of PFAS identified
• List of potential alternatives for each application
4
Substitution resource:
Source: Ian Cousins
• Finding the right balance in:
• Restricting uses where alternatives are available, with sufficient (but also not too long)
transitional periods for companies to comply
• Ensuring consistency across EU policy objectives, also delivering green and digital
transition and a high level of protection of human health and the environment
• Stimulating substitution without overregulation
5
What are current challenges in the EU?
6
What could OECD do?
• Information gathering (like the report on PFAS products)
• Facilitate discussion between regions and sharing experiences
7
Thank you

OECD Global Forum on the Environment dedicated to Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances: Safer alternatives and innovation needs | Valentina Bertato and Martijn Beekman

  • 1. 1 Moving to safer alternatives: what are the innovation needs? Martijn Beekman Valentina Bertato European Commission
  • 2. • Initially started with regulatory pressure • PFOS restriction • PFOA restriction • Authorities started to work on PFAS alternatives • Substance evaluation • Harmonised classification • SVHC identification • Restriction • CSS: group approach • Papers from academia • Pollution cases/ public awareness • Group restrictions 2 PFAS substitution in the EU: the history Regrettable substitution moving away from C8 chemistry Moving towards substitution of all PFAS
  • 3. Substitution activities are well advanced for: • Fire-fighting foams • Consumer articles • Outdoor clothing and other textile applications • Cookware • Food and other packaging • Mixtures (ski wax, cosmetics, waterproofing sprays) Substitution activities initiated, for example (non-exhaustive): • Applications of F-gases • Solar panels • Batteries • Membranes 3 How is PFAS substitution progressing in EU?
  • 4. Online database https://zeropm.eu/alternative-assessment-database/ PFAS restriction is the main source of information For each use category: • List of applications • List of PFAS identified • List of potential alternatives for each application 4 Substitution resource: Source: Ian Cousins
  • 5. • Finding the right balance in: • Restricting uses where alternatives are available, with sufficient (but also not too long) transitional periods for companies to comply • Ensuring consistency across EU policy objectives, also delivering green and digital transition and a high level of protection of human health and the environment • Stimulating substitution without overregulation 5 What are current challenges in the EU?
  • 6. 6 What could OECD do? • Information gathering (like the report on PFAS products) • Facilitate discussion between regions and sharing experiences
