WASHINGTON DC - Environmental and health experts at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) non-profit have welcomed a new US roadmap to tackle pollution from per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) but called for bolder action.

It comes after President Joe Biden's administration confirmed that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was to launch a PFAS Strategic Roadmap to "research, restrict and remediate harmful" PFAS compounds.

Dubbed 'forever chemicals' because of their durability in the environment, PFAS are widely used in the textile industry for their water, stain and oil-repellent properties, as well as in other products such as non-stick cookware.
