More than 250 participants from all over the world tuned in on September 17th to watch a webinar on “PFAS and the Essential Use Concept” co-organized by PERFORCE3, the European Environmental Bureau and the Department of Environmental Science (Stockholm University). The event brought together experts from academia, industry, an NGO, and government, for a constructive discussion on the challenges and opportunities associated with managing PFAS using the Essential Use Concept.
“A comprehensive restriction on the use of PFAS in society is being proposed which will prioritize non-essential uses of PFAS. The topic of PFAS and essentiality therefore appeared to be the ideal discussion topic to kick-off the new seminar series,” says Ian Cousins, Professor at the Department of Environmental Science and coordinator of the PERFORCE3 ETN.
