SPARTANBURG – US textile manufacturer Milliken & Company has vowed to eliminate all per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, commonly referred to as PFAS, from its fibres and finishes portfolio by the end of the year. 

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. 

“As part of our sustainability journey, we are committed to finding innovative and meaningful solutions to reduce our environmental impact. While we do not always begin our journey with perfect information, we strive to make adjustments as new information comes to light,” said Milliken’s president and CEO, Halsey Cook.
