Episode 12: How to decide for PFAS alternatives?

Today we introduce one successful example of PFAS phase-out from consumer products: a rope manufacturer decided to switch to PFAS-free production of climbing ropes without compromising functionality. While this example shows that complete replacement of PFAS in products is possible, in complex industrial processes this can still be difficult. In this episode we speak with Rachel London about her research on methods and tools to evaluate PFAS alternatives.
