Protecting Fluoropolymers and Fluorinated Gases, the Building Blocks of Our Future
Our Position on PFAS
The world needs chemistry. Fluoropolymers and fluorinated gases (f-gases), power the largest industries and value chains, touching nearly every sector of the economy. They are critical solutions that will enable the energy transition, electrify transport, power AI, and battle the next pandemic. Their highly unique combination of properties gives them unmatched levels of performance. There are no alternatives that possess all these unique properties while delivering the same high level of performance.
Proposed regulations in Europe aim to restrict the manufacturing, use, and import of these and other PFAS substances on the market. Such a restriction would have a devastating impact on jobs, supply chains, the economy, and the ability to achieve EU climate, strategic autonomy, and innovation objectives. Chemours supports and advocates for a coherent regulatory approach that allows for the use of safer, better performing chemistries in the EU. We invite companies that produce or use fluoropolymers and f-gases, their customers, and their value chains to join us in this effort.
Critical Applications of Fluoropolymers and Fluorinated Gases
Fluoropolymers and f-gases are the best solutions for hundreds of important applications in our daily lives. From the transportation, medical, electronics, hydrogen, semiconductor, and industrial manufacturing industries —we rely upon these chemistries.
Fluoropolymers and F-Gases Come to Life
In Dordrecht we have already invested a lot in new technology and innovation to reduce emissions to air and water.
We have invested in new installations, like a wastewater treatments installation as well as a carbon filter installation for emissions to air, which have reduced some of our emissions considerably.
