PFOA emissions from an incinerator

September 21, 2018

 

 

 

The results of the Stockholm Convention COP9

  • Global ban on PFOA and more than 150 related substances with eight 5-year exemptions and one exemption until 2036.

  • Special restrictions on firefighting foams containing PFOA and related substances including a ban on production, no export or import except for environmentally sound disposal, no use in training, and no use in testing unless all releases are contained.

  • Warning about PFAS as a class noting that, “fluorine-based fire-fighting foams could have negative environmental, human health and socioeconomic impacts due to their persistency and mobility.”

But what about PFOA emissions by a state of the art incinerator? ToxicWatch makes a long-term sampling study of UPOPs and find PFOA emissions in the flue gas.
