DuPont, 3M, Daikin and Others Reduce PFOA

pfoa2.jpgIn response to the 2006 EPA launch of the 2010/15 PFOA Stewardship Program, eight companies have reported a significant reduction in the release of PFOA and related chemicals, putting industry on target for a 95 percent reduction goal by 2010. The companies are Arkema, Asahi, Ciba, Clariant, Daikin, DuPont, 3M/Dyneon and Solvay Solexis.

Three companies reported PFOA reductions greater than 98 percent. Asahi, in 2006, introduced a new line of products that are PFOA free, and last year, DuPont announced plans to “eliminate their need to make, buy or use PFOA by 2015.” Later this year, 3M plans to introduce a PFOA substitute it will used in some of its products.

Last year, there was a substantial increase in shareholder resolutions dealing with toxic product risks.
