ESPOO - A European Union (EU) funded research programme has been launched to develop methodologies to phase out the use of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in products including textiles.

The ZeroF project brings together 12 research and industrial partners who will collaborate to develop 'safe-and-sustainable-by-design' coating alternatives to replace PFAS compounds in textiles and food packaging.

PFAS, dubbed 'forever chemicals' for their durability in the environment, are commonly used as water- and stain-proof coatings on textiles but are associated with serious health risks including liver damage and cancer.
