What is PFAS?

PFAS stands for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. They are also known as “forever chemicals”. They are a large, complex group of synthetic chemicals that have been used in consumer products around the world since the 1950s. They are ingredients in various everyday products. For example, PFAS are used to keep food from sticking to packaging or cookware, make clothes and carpets resistant to stains, and create more effective firefighting foam. PFAS molecules have a chain of linked carbon and fluorine atoms. Because the carbon-fluorine bond is one of the strongest, these chemicals do not degrade easily in the environment.
